Let’s be honest, multitasking with babies and preschoolers is difficult for homeschool moms. That’s why I love all the prep work Sonlight does for me to prepare for the school year.

  • Practice fine motor coordination through daily practical life skills—cutting food with a safety knife, pouring liquids, and sweeping


  • Strengthen pre-reading skills through a sound of the week activity that emphasizes the phonetic pronunciation
  • Build pre-writing skills by learning how to write lowercase letters
  • Begin learning a foreign language
  • Hear cadence and rhyme


  • Gain an introduction to early math skills & understand quantities and numbers from 1-10
  • Wade into rudimentary science
  • Introduce science and social studies children can see by exploring a farm with animals, how food is digested, our five senses, how we grow, and what people do for work in the community


  • Grow in their cultural literacy
  • Explore various styles of music: praise and worship, classic preschool songs, the phonetic alphabet song, and songs that make you move


  • Gain self-confidence, independence, and personal responsibility
  • Master listening skills
  • Develop compassion and empathy

We love how Sonlight is organized and takes us through our day with so many ways to apply what we are learning to our family and the world around us.
