  • New Item

This 9-week curriculum package will carry you through the second quarter of the school year. We recommend that you complete the first quarter curriculum package A before this program.

Designed for children ages 6-8 (1st grade), this Sonlight package is a comprehensive, yet easy-to-use curriculum that includes everything you need to homeschool for the second quarter of the school year: daily lesson plans, book notes, teaching tips, all the books and materials. Simply continue with the math program you’re already doing or this is also a good time to consider changing a math program that isn’t the best fit for your student. Add any optional language arts materials, and desired electives … and you’ve got a complete curriculum! Flexibility without a year-long commitment.

This package Includes the following. You will already have purchased some of the materials in the first quarter curriculum package.

Includes:

  • History
  • Bible
  • Literature
  • Language Arts
  • Handwriting
  • Science
  • Mapping and Timeline Activities
  • All connected with a daily schedule – what we refer to as an Instructor’s Guide.

NOTE: In the first quarter curriculum package, you purchased several materials that can be used for a full year (history spine, handwriting, map and timeline activities). If you continue with additional quarterly packages, you will not need to purchase those materials again. See additional notes below.

Overview of the Instructor’s Guide

All the lesson plans, activities, notes, and teaching tips you need to teach your child. The Sonlight Instructor’s Guide takes the books included in this curriculum package and turns them into a cohesive curriculum—all of the planning has been done for you! Just open the guide and go.

The Instructor’s Guide will come as loose, 3-hole punched pages. We recommend placing the guide into a 3-ring binder. If you plan to purchase additional quarterly curriculum packages, we recommend the Sonlight 3” binder so all materials will fit.

Overview of History

Pick up your study of history with the Vikings and continue through the Middle Ages. Set sail with the early European explorers as they discover the New World.


Overview of Bible

You will continue with the wonderful children’s Bible, included in the first quarter package. When you read Egermeier’s Bible Story Book to your children, they will beg you to “read one more chapter!” 

Overview of Literature

The literature portion of this program includes both Read-Alouds, the books you read aloud to your children, and Readers, the books your children will learn to read themselves. Readers are included in the language arts portion of your curriculum.

For Read-Alouds, you will enjoy these favorites:

Overview of Language Arts

With Grade 1 Readers and Language Arts for Readers 1. Continue teaching your children how to read, write, and spell with our popular Phonics and Language Arts program that features our exclusive I Can Read It! series.

Overview of Handwriting

No matter what your child's motor skill level, they will continue to enjoy daily success using our favorite program, Handwriting Without Tears. Includes the workbook and lined paper from Handwriting Without Tears 1.

Overview of Science

Discover the fascinating worlds of biology and physics as you continue your studies from Sonlight Science A. . This quarter your students will focus on all things animals including learning how to classify them. You’ll also take a fascinating look at plant anatomy. If you haven’t already, we recommend purchasing the Science Supplies Kit A to minimize your experiment prep time. This package includes select books from Science A: Biology, Botany and Physics.

The Supplies Kit is a year-long kit that will be referenced in the second, third, and fourth quarter curriculum kits, but will only need to be purchased once.

Overview of Mapping & Timeline Activities

You'll continue to use Sonlight's Timeline Book and Markable Map (included in the first quarter package) to incorporate geography naturally into your school day. Students use the Markable Map to make visual connections of how all their history books and Read-Alouds relate geographically. Timeline activities tell you when to add people, events, and dates to your Timeline Book.

These are included only in this first semester package, but are referenced and scheduled in the second, third, and fourth quarter packages. You will not need to purchase them again if you continue on with another quarterly curriculum package of the same level.

30-Day Money-Back Guarantee

We want to make sure you get what is right for you and your family. Returning items that don't work for your family should be easy and stress-free. Every quarterly curriculum package comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Items must be returned in unused, resalable condition. Get full details about the 30-day return policy here.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • This product is available for purchase only for the 2020-2021 school year.
  • We recommend you begin with the first quarter package as some materials included in it are needed to complete the second, third, and fourth quarter curriculum packages. These resources include, but are not limited to the history spine, science experiments, handwriting, spelling, map and timeline book activities. You will not need to repurchase the materials that are used all year long in the second, third, or fourth quarter packages; they will not be included in those packages.

The items listed below are included in the selected package. Add additional items to your cart as desired.
