My first homeschooling year was last year and we used Sonlight homeschool curriculum. We completed Core 1 for my 1st and 3rd grader, and are ready to start Core 2.

What I loved most about it was that it was all planned out and it took very little prep time to set up and maintain throughout the year. The best part was the books we read together which is how the learning is set up. A good story taught many things including history, geography, and vocabulary; with the "heart-felt" story line, we were all able to remember so much more than I ever remember learning when I was in school.

I also was able to memorize scripture for the first time in my life, and have used these memorized verses throughout the year with discipline, character building and overall shaping of my two daughters.

I think Sonlight homeschool curriculum is affordable compared to private school. Sonlight offers free shipping, plus a 10% discount if you order a core. You can also get free shipping throughout the entire year for extra books/materials you may need; I love that!

Thanks for sharing your success as well as some great benefits of Sonlight homeschool curriculum! Have a wonderful second year of homeschooling! Heather :)

Kids Love Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum!

by Angela
(Denver, CO, USA)

We have been using Sonlight homeschool curriculum now for three years, and love it. We have used Cores 3/4, 4/5, and Core K. We have really loved each one of the Cores, and our kids love being read to, and are learning so much.

We love to snuggle up on the couch together and read. We often finish books before they are scheduled to be finished, because I can't say 'no' when my kids are begging for 'one more chapter, mom, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease.' :) Sonlight really is the way I wish I had been taught.

As far as price, well...that is what Christmas is for, right?! ;) We use money from Grandparents each year to buy our Sonlight stuff. And, I use one core with my older two, and one for my younger two. We will be getting a lot of use out of each and every book and, if I chose to, I could always resell them later (although I can't imagine getting rid of these friends, aka: books). Sonlight is worth every penny, in our opinion!

Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum Benefits

Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum Savings

Need an efficient and cost-effective way to homeschool multiple kids? Happy mom highly recommends Sonlight homeschool curriculum for a flexible, learn-at-your-own-pace education.

I love Sonlight! I have used Sonlight from kindergarten to the 4th grade. They choose the best literature and make it a curriculum. The included Instructor Guides provide the daily lesson plans, making homeschooling easy.

This year I have a 4th grader and a first grader. I have been able to use the same "core" for both children. All I have to do is buy the appropriate readers, language arts and math programs from their site.

The ability to use it for both children saves a lot of money and TIME!

We take our time and don't necessarily follow the same schedule. We may not accomplish all that they have scheduled for one day. We simply check off what we finish. This allows us to take more time if we need to or take a day off for a field trip. Some years we have taken 18 months or 2 years to finish a "core".

I highly recommend Sonlight.

Thanks Donna, for your review and your Sonlight money and time-saving tips. Being able to use the same curriculum for multiple kids in different grades, is definitely a blessing!

Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum Makes Learning and Teaching Fun!

While Christian based, Sonlight homeschool curriculum gives an open-minded, realistic look on what is best in our world. Through Sonlight's literature reading books, the struggles and triumphs of real life experiences through the ages, are revealed. This really brings history to life.

Sonlight provides carefully selected literature from a vast array of writers and publishers, not just it's own. This provides for a broader, more independent view.

The curriculum allows for flexibility. For example, you can choose from several different math programs, and many electives. You can pick and choose what you want to use.

If there is a particular aspect you don't like, you don't have to get it. For example, I prefer Shurley English for grammar rather than the one Sonlight offers, but I do like Sonlight's phonics resources.

I have been using Sonlight for five years now, with both my children. It's nice when my child picks up a book he considers exciting, and doesn't even realize he's learning about the geography, terrain, wildlife, and culture of another country; but he sure does talk about it!

It is a bit pricey, but my children are worth it. Also, Sonlight's literature based curriculum makes teaching more enjoyable for me, as well. They do offer a payment plan now, so it is more affordable for more families.
