Kindergarten Homeschool Overview

Explore American History

With Sonlight, at the Kindergarten level you'll give your students their first taste of American History. Sonlight's K program shares the stories of key events and important people in American History. This is going to be a great year. You can do this. Whether you plan to just test homeschooling out, or are hoping to homeschool for years, starting in Kindergarten is a great choice.

Kindergarten History

Sonlight always starts with History. In the case of Kindergarten, you'll be using carefully chosen books to give your students their first taste of American history.

You'll spend time reading an age-appropriate story Bible, and you'll have the opportunity to read some of the best stories out there together.

Kindergarten Lesson Plans

Sonlight is much more than just great books, to make your days go smoothly we include our Instructor's Guides so you are able to:

  • Open and go. You can simply look at the schedule each day to pursue the next lesson.
  • Teach with confidence. We include all of the notes, questions, vocabulary, timelines, and geography you need.
  • Stay organized. With our clean design, attractive color and binder system, you are able to flip to what you need, when you need it. Tracking what you've done is easy.

"Sonlight makes it easy for us. I love that I don't have to spend time preparing to 'do' school." - Kelli A., Andover, MN.

Kindergarten Language Arts

In Kindergarten, you will teach your children the alphabet and letter sounds. You will also serve as their scribe as they begin to practice creative writing by dictating their thoughts to you. With all the amazing books you will read together, your children will have plenty of opportunity to imitate good writing during weekly copywork exercises. Watch the world written communication begin to open to your children.

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.

Kindergarten Handwriting

Sonlight has a gentle approach to Language Arts, and this Kindergarten year we start with Handwriting. Sonlight offer's all of the top handwriting programs, so your children can get a solid foundation of letter formation right from the start. We want handwriting to develop well from the start in preparation for writing as your children grow.

We include Handwriting Without Tears in the Kindergarten All-Subjects Package. All-Subjects Package. Check out all of your Handwriting options here.

Kindergarten Science

From the heat of the sun to the eyes of an insect, Sonlight Science K teaches your children to think like a scientist.

They will use real scientific skills and practices as they explore rainforests and encounter reptiles, insects, plants and more. Science K builds on children's natural curiosity. It also includes a high-level introduction to forces, matter, and other STEM topics that will set them up for a lifetime of learning and application.

Every week, your students will engage in an experiment directly tied to the rest of the content you study that week. Literature provides the context, while the experiments allow your children to experience the scientific process for themselves.

As with the history section, you have options. Choose the matching Kindergarten Science level or browse other available Science programs and see what you could discover.

Kindergarten 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."

Math-U-See is included in Sonlight's Kindergarten All-Subjects Package. Learn more about your other Kindergarten Math options here.
