Description
  • New Item

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

Designed for children ages 10-13 (5th grade), this Sonlight package is a comprehensive, yet easy-to-use curriculum that includes everything you need to homeschool for the third 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.

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

NOTE: In the first 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 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 quarter will continue using The World Wars to chronicle events of World War 1. Your student will also learn about the stock market crash and The Great Depression as you read The Landmark History of the American People, Volume 2 together. As you finish out this quarter, your student will confront prejudice against different people groups and see how that affected life in the United States as well as how it lead up to World War 2.

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 several wonderful titles:

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

Overview of Language Arts

Includes lesson plans that help your children develop excellent written communication skills.

Overview of Spelling

Spelling need not be difficult and frustrating. Rather than use tests and long spelling lists, Spelling You See takes a different approach to teach spelling. No spelling tests. No word lists. No flashcards. Scheduled: Spelling You See E: American Spirit.

Spelling You See E: American Spirit is included only in this first semester package only, but is referenced and scheduled in the second, third, and fourth quarter packages.

Overview of Science

Ever wondered what lasers are made of or how to tell a planet from a star? Do you know the most important energy source on earth? Physics and technology take the stage in Science E. Your children will study electricity, magnetism, light, color and lenses as well as space, stars and the planets. They'll make amazing discoveries as they perform several science experiments. We recommend purchasing the Science Supplies Kit E to minimize your experiment prep time. Includes select books from Science E: Electricity, Magnetism, and Astronomy.

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 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.

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

When Nick starts working for Mr. Churchill, owner of a semiprofessional team, he meets Satchel Paige, arguably the best pitcher in the world.
