Still on the fence about homeschooling? Or simply need a short term homeschooling option? This 9-week curriculum package will carry you through the first quarter of the school year.

Designed for children ages 7-9 (2nd grade), this Sonlight package is a comprehensive, yet easy-to-use curriculum that includes everything you need to homeschool for the first quarter of the school year: daily lesson plans, book notes, teaching tips, all the books and materials. Simply add a Math program appropriate to your child’s skill level or school requirements, any optional language arts materials, and desired electives … and you’ve got a complete curriculum! Flexibility without a year-long commitment.

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 this first package, you will be purchasing 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 these 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

This level will let you travel the globe on a thrilling ancient adventure! Begin your chronological journey through history using the story-based Child’s History of the World as the centerpiece of your studies.

Overview of Bible

 A classic devotional book for children focuses on biblical doctrines such as who God is, what He does, Christ’s work, the Holy Spirit, prayer, and the church.

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 read themselves. Readers are included in the language arts portion of your curriculum.

For Read-Alouds, you will enjoy these favorites:

In Readers, you’ll enjoy this wonderful title:

All of these titles offer fascinating and exciting stories that will expand and enhance your students’ understanding of history.

Overview of Language Arts

Confidently guide your children as they gain confidence in reading, writing and spelling. Just follow the guide to teach reading, phonics, spelling, copywork and creative expression.

Overview of Handwriting

No matter what your child's motor skill level, they will enjoy daily success using our favorite program, Handwriting Without Tears. Includes Handwriting Without Tears 2.

Overview of Science

Fascinating, beautifully-illustrated books introduces your children to meteorology, biology, electricity, soil science, astronomy, physiology and hydrology. This quarter your students will focus on animals and conduct several science experiments. We recommend purchasing the Science Supplies Kit B to minimize your experiment prep time. Includes select books from Science B: Animals, Astronomy, 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

A few essential resources are included in this package to enrich your learning. You'll use Sonlight's Timeline Book and Markable Map to incorporate geography naturally into your school day. Students use the Markable Map to make visual connections of how all their Readers, 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.

If you have any questions about Sonlight and our curriculum, please don't hesitate to contact a Sonlight Advisor and get some additional information.

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.
