Instructor's Guides

The Instructor's Guides include complete, 36-week lesson plans and notes that integrate your children's various subjects into an exciting, unified learning experience. The Instructor's Guides weave your books and materials together into a cohesive full-year curriculum—it's your roadmap for the entire school year!

History, Geography, Bible reading and memorization

Journey through the first half of a two-year sweep of World History, from Creation to the Fall of the Roman Empire. Literature-rich learning makes this journey a delight!

Children grow in love for the Lord as you daily read Bible stories with them, and the included Sing the Word! CD+digital helps you hide God's Word in your heart with memorization exercises.

Includes Sonlight's History / Bible / Literature B, Intro to World History, Year 1 of 2, 5-Day.

Literature

Sonlight offers two types of literature: Read-Alouds for parents to share with their children, and Readers for children to read on their own. The Read-Alouds offer more sophisticated story lines and rich discussion points, and the Readers offer skill-appropriate and age-appropriate reading practice, enticing children to become literate, book lovers, and eager learners.

Language Arts

Confidently guide your children as they gain confidence in reading, writing and spelling. They'll love the level-appropriate Readers as they gain confidence in their independent reading skills, as well as creative assignments that make writing fun. Includes Grade 2 Readers and Language Arts, 5-Day. Students will learn to organize their thoughts and construct simple sentences, then combine sentences into paragraphs.

Spelling & Phonics

Phonics instruction is included in the Sonlight Language Arts Guides for levels K-4. Spelling instruction is phonics-based and also included in the Sonlight Language Arts Guides for levels 1-4. Spelling and Vocabulary is already built into your lesson plans at this level. Spelling and vocabulary words are from the reading you share with your students. This makes practice a natural addition to your homeschool day. We do offer additional resources as desired.

Handwriting

This year your children will have opportunities to practice handwriting in their copywork and creative expression assignments.

We include Handwriting Without Tears in our All-Subjects Packages because it is designed to eliminate problems with reversals, spacing, placement, and letter and numeral formation. But, you are able to customize your package and choose the handwriting program of your choice and still enjoy our best discount of 20% off.

This 2nd grade All-Subjects Package includes Handwriting Without Tears 2.

Science

From the rock cycle to elements on the periodic table, Science B nurtures children’s natural curiosity and provides daily opportunities to explore the world around them. They will use real scientific skills and practices as they unearth plants, observe animals, excavate rocks, explore the features of solids, liquids, gases more. Science B includes a high-level introduction to coding and how things are made and other STEM topics that will prepare students for a lifetime of scientific curiosity, learning and application.

Weekly science experiments tie directly to the week’s reading material for a more linear progression from reading to doing. Thanks to Discover & Do: Science Experiments, your end-of-week experiments reinforce and apply the concepts studied in the days previous so you can plainly see your child’s developing mastery of particular science concepts.

Marie Curie is the highlighted scientist.

Includes Science B: Matter, Ecosystems, Earth Systems, and Engineering Design (5-Day).

Math

Apply your students' mastery of single-digit addition and subtraction to multiple-digit addition and subtraction. One of the stepping stones between these two levels is the concept of place value, which is an important milestone for truly grasping any multiple-digit operation. Includes Math-U-See Beta.

Resources

A few essential resources make your learning extra rich this year. The All-Subjects package includes a 3” Binder with Tabs to organize your Instructor’s Guides. We recommend adding The Timeline Book, and Markable Map and Markers if you don’t already own them. (The Timeline Book and Markable Map only need to be purchased once. You'll be using them each year).
