Sonlight's early Language Arts programs include a phonics foundation. You will also find basic phonics for spelling rules in our language arts Instructor's Guide.

Sonlight Phonics Programs can be purchased as stand-alone products. They are already included in our All-Subjects Packages.

The phonics programs below include a set of age-appropriate Readers. If you purchased a History / Bible / Literature program, you will already have a set of Readers and only need to purchase a Language Arts program to get phonics instruction.

If you would like to supplement this instruction, you may be interested in additional materials for assisting in language arts studies.
