History, Geography, Bible reading and memorization
This program completes the study that began in Sonlight G. Get a backstage pass to the last 500 years of World History—colonial rule and colonial rule overthrown, the influence of the Renaissance on the American and French Revolutions, the World Wars and life for everyday people during those wars. In this program, you will meet the people whose ideas and actions forged the course of history, from reformers to rocket scientists. Gain a working knowledge of what happened from the 17th century to about 1990.
Sonlight H includes a mix of challenging books and fun books. You’ll find thrilling adventures, laugh-out-loud scenes, and heartwarming stories, for a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Includes Sonlight’s History / Bible / Literature H program, World History, Year 2 of 2 (5-Day).
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 age-appropriate reading tied directly into the history content of the program.
This year in 8th grade, your children will have many opportunities to develop into well-rounded writers with a blend of grammar, mechanics, and creative instruction. From haiku to the research paper, from gerunds to participles, from writing a superb literary hook to avoiding fragments, students gain tools to become more effective communicators.
At this level, Language Arts instruction and assignments are linked to the History / Bible / Literature program, which means that every assignment reinforces what your children are learning about as they read.
8th grade literature program includes Language Arts H, 5-Day.
Sonlight includes Math-U-See Algebra 1 in the 8th Grade All-Subjects Package. Algebra 1 covers topics like graphing, simultaneous equations, exponents, polynomials, and unit multipliers. Your student will learn about commutative and associative properties, the order of operations, solving for an unknown with one variable, the distributive property, the slope-intercept formula and finding the slope-intercept formula with different givens among other things.
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).
