Description

Tour world history from creation to the present!

  • Get the very best of History / Bible / Literature B and C in one exciting year! Give your kids a foundational overview of world history.
  • Relax with complete lesson plans and materials for homeschool success.
  • Adventure with Vikings, chariot racers, artists, missionaries, astronauts & more.
  • Bond with your kids as you spark their love of learning.
  • Purchase this package and you'll get free shipping (lower 48), Forum access, a one-year guarantee and other perks.

Sonlight's complete Intro to World History program takes two full years. If you have the time to do all of Sonlight B and C, that's still my top recommendation. You'll enjoy many more favorite books, and you'll get a deeper, richer study of history.

But not everyone feels they can spend two years on World History. Perhaps you are new to Sonlight and would prefer to only wait a year until the joy of American History in Sonlight D and E.

Whatever your circumstances, if you would prefer to only spend a year, rather than do only the first half (Sonlight B) or the second half (Sonlight C) of World History, I recommend this one-year condensed program. Although, of course, I had to leave some things out, it's my best effort to slim down our two-year program to a single year.

Student: 2-3 hrs | Parent: 1.5 -2 hrs

Readers

The 3 Readers package is ideal for children who read long-vowel, 5- and 6-letter words fluently but could still benefit from practice with more complex chapter books.

A collection of more than twenty early chapter books. One tells of a surprising technique to avoid a prairie fire. One thwarts pet kidnappers. Several tell of immigration and westward expansion. A book set in Russia, in Papua New Guinea, on a Viking ship, in a lighthouse, on a farm.

So many varied stories!
