Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum Review

Sonlight homeschool curriculum Core K was truly a great help for newbies like our family. We used this program for our daughters first year of home school and we will use it again for our youngest daughter in two more years for her first year of homeschool.


Sonlight homeschool curriculum was such a success for us because it's all laid out for you. Though you don't have to do every activity they suggest for us it took the anxiety out of our first year. Our whole family was involved in a major car accident. Instead of having to figure out what and how to get us back on track all I had to do was pick up where we left off.

Not only did my oldest enjoy the read alouds and bible studies, my youngest did as well. It was very easy to include my youngest who was 2 into a lot of the activities.

This curriculum is by no means inexpensive. If purchased from Sonlight directly it can cost more then 800 dollars. I was fortunate enough to get most of the books I needed used from homeschool classified and The Well Trained Mind forum. I bought the Instructor Guides and the books that I couldn't find used, directly from Sonlight's website.
I hope this is helpful to someone!

Thanks for the Sonlight Kindergarten review and for including some money-saving tips for others, Kristine! Happy Homeschooling! Blessings, Heather :)

Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum: P4/5 - Kindergarten Review

Not sure if Sonlight homeschool curriculum is a good fit for your family? Check out this young mom's review to see if it's right for you...

I initially started using a free online course for preschool but found that I was modifying it to fit my needs and creating a lot of it on my own. As time went on I no longer had the time I was spending and was told, for the 2nd time, about Sonlight homeschool curriculum.

I began using Sonlight for Pre-school 4/5 last September and absolutely loved it! The teaching plans are neatly lined out and easy to follow. My little one loves to be read to so it was a great program because it really had a lot of reading. The "Developing the Early Learners" were a lot of fun for her and I added the Kumon mazes, tracing, cutting, folding and eventually some letter tracing pages I found online. P4/5 is a 36 week course.

The value was good because we have some wonderful classic books that she will use for years and the time it saved me was well worth it! As such, we just started Sonlight Kindergarten and so far we are very pleased with the lesson plans and the books that she will be learning from. My daughter was so excited when everything came she didn't want to finish P4/5...she wanted to immediately start kindergarten!

If you plan to use Sonlight homeschool curriculum more than once, I would recommend copying the consumable pages so that you don't have to purchase them a 2nd time and find out that somethings been updated and no longer goes along with everything you already have.

Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum for Preschool and Kindergarten

by Alycia
(Akron OH USA)

I have only used Sonlight homeschool curriculum for 2 years of preschool and plan to use it once more for Kindergarten. What I have liked best about Sonlight's curriculum is their book choices.

Each book is carefully selected and enjoyable for both the child and parent reading. I have been amazed at what my children have remembered and continue to share and talk about with others. The books definitely taught them so much and they are enthusiastic to share what they have learned. Many of the books were borrowed from the library which cuts down on costs.

The Preschool years guide is simple and easy to follow. Kindergarten looks challenging but exciting. One thing that Sonlight does not recommend is to try to do everything they list. That will be hard for me because it all looks worthwhile!

Alycia, thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to help other parents learn more about Sonlight homeschool curriculum. Your thoughts are helpful and appreciated! Blessings, Heather :)

Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum P4/5 with Readers K

Time-Saving Sonlight Homeschool Curriculum

Experienced childcare provider and educator shares why she chose Sonlight homeschool curriculum for her young homeschooling family…

I completed the P3/4 Sonlight homeschool curriculum last year, and was very impressed with it. This year I am using the P4/5 with Readers K with my four year old. I really love the curriculum because it is a literature based curriculum that is really fun for the kids, and fun to use as a teacher.

I have worked with children in daycare and in elementary schools for over ten years. This approach is different than anything that I was used to. I find that it is very beneficial and my daughter is learning so much! I do supplement certain books with books that I already own ... to save money. This is very easy to do! The library also works great with this program.

What I like the most is the time that I save not having to plan out lessons for each day/week. This gives me more time with my family and children. I do not have to fear that there are gaps in my lessons. I trust Sonlight, and recommend this homeschool curriculum to all homeschooling families that I meet.

Thanks for sharing Tiffany! Saving money is important, but so is saving time and as busy home educators, we don't have any time to waste. It took me awhile to learn that lesson. Sometimes I spend more time trying to save a few bucks and end up wasting the precious little time that I have. I am thankful for companies like Sonlight who have put together curriculum resources that are easy to use, engaging and all laid out for busy parents. To your homeschool success and savings, Heather :)
