A 'lifelong love to learn' journey begins
Explore the world together
With curiosity shining in their eyes, your kindergarten children are just starting to unwrap their world. So now is the perfect time to show them just how much fun learning can be.
Imagine the look on their faces when you tell them what Cleopatra ate when she was their age, or you regale them with the tale of a peasant boy who dared seek the hand of a beautiful princess – and succeeded! You'll discover a crime-fighting canine and a dog who battled a blizzard to bring medicine to thousands of sick children in Alaska. If time permits, you can even help a father rescue a dragon. How cool is that?
In this curriculum, new and exciting worlds await. Along the way giants of folklore and history come alive again for your youngster. Johnny Appleseed and Dr. Dolittle are here, as is Isaac Newton and Winnie the Pooh.
With Sonlight's carefully chosen books, your children will learn fun and awesome things such as: Were there really Vikings named Thor? Why they call it 'Victorian' England? and what's a Ming vase and why is it valuable?
At this critical stage, children's minds are making important developmental advances. Experts say children this age strive to emulate their adult role models. Copying you, learning comes naturally. So let's keep the learning fun. The most complicated thing your child needs to tackle right now is staying within the lines of the coloring book.
You are your child's best teacher
Is there a better role model than Mom and Dad?
So cuddle up on the couch, or in the hammock, for "read aloud" time and discover worlds and wonders far beyond your own borders.
Take a stroll through world history and explore the way people ate, dressed and lived throughout the centuries. Learn about the great dynasties of ancient earth. It's all here, and more.
Teach your children how to open their mind's eye to God's fascinating world. With Sonlight's help, you'll share precious time and make memories that will last lifetimes (yours and theirs). You'll also be setting the stage for future learning and having fun while doing it.
The main point to get across now is, "Learning is fun!" Sonlight's Kindergarten homeschool curriculum does exactly that.

The books in this curriculum provide the basis for faith-building conversations. They present worthy heroes who display courage and honesty, who work hard, love their families and do the right thing. Let's give children some models worth imitating!
Everyone needs a swashbuckling hero, right?
Great books are fun to read and well-written stories make it easy to remember important things. Reading good literature, no matter the reading level, is a pleasurable experience. As you read together about great people and really interesting places, you'll spark your child's curiosity. Our curriculum is designed for maximum fun and maximum memory-making. We give you plenty of opportunities to log some couch time talking with your children about what they just learned and how it relates to their world.
Spelling & Vocabulary
Please note: Spelling and Vocabulary is already built in to 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, but do not suggest using them until 3rd grade.
- Where does thunder come from?
- Where does the sun go when its dark?
- Why is the sky blue?
- How much does the Earth weigh?
- How do cicadas fly?
Get ready to marvel at why things do what they do as you discover the world where plants and animals live, right in your own backyard.
Great books. Engaging activities. Hands on experiments. Fun and instructive DVDs. All that, and more, is here just waiting for your child.
Kindergarteners get to do cool and fun stuff like making a weather vane and watching it in action. They'll marvel at the absorption power of a simple sugar cube. They even get to taste-test milkshakes. Milkshake 101, what room is that in? Why, the kitchen, of course. Mmm, chocolate!
Bake cookies, learn some Math
Your child will learn not only how to write numerals but also addition and subtraction, basic counting, skip counting, geometric shapes, telling time, and they will be introduced to the manipulative block system in the kindergarten math curriculum. It's a gentle introduction to "doing math."
Rediscover a lost art
Doesn't every mother want their child to have the cursive competence of John Hancock?
While scriveners and calligraphers are in small demand these days, your child will grow up without having to struggle to write their own name.
With Sonlight's homeschooling for Kindergarten curriculum of award-winning handwriting programs, soon enough your child will be writing as elegantly as King George's antagonist himself.
