Choosing Christian Homeschool Curriculum

1) Pick a History / Bible / Literature Program

Because History / Bible / Lit is the centerpiece of Sonlight Curriculum, and since each History / Bible / Lit program provides an excellent education for a range of ages, start here.

What do you want to study this year? If your children are within three years of one another in age, consider combining them into one program. (It's a joy to watch siblings play together after they've heard the same story. They often incorporate the characters and storyline.)

2) Add other subjects

You have a number of options …

Readers – For Sonlight A-C, pick a Reader pack that will work for each child you're teaching. Click here for Reader packages. Take a quick placement test here. For Sonlight D, decide whether your children will prefer the Readers or the faster pace of the Advanced Readers. (If siblings below a third grade reading level are listening in with older siblings, pick a younger Reader pack for them, too.) For Sonlight E and up, the Readers are included.

Language Arts – Language Arts is built off your Readers. However, your students may be further ahead in reading than writing. Click here to take a quick placement test to ensure you get the right LA program for your student in the lower levels. From level D and up, match the LA program with your History level.

Science – Typically, you can simply choose the same level Science that you chose for your Sonlight History / Bible / Lit program, e.g., Science D with Sonlight D. If your children don't care to work independently, it's common (and perfectly fine) to combine everyone into one Science program. Click here for Science programs.

Math – Choose one program for each child. Click here to learn about the Math programs. Click here for placement tests.

Handwriting – This is included in the All-Subjects Packages through third grade. After that, it's optional. Click here to learn more about Handwriting.

Spelling – For students in Sonlight A-C, spelling is included in the Language Arts Guide, and is based on words students learn to read. For students from Sonlight D on (or earlier, if you choose), pick the program you prefer. Then choose a book for each child, according to ability. Click here to learn more about Spelling.

Electives – We've selected our favorite resources for Art Appreciation and Art Creation, for Music Appreciation and Music Performance, along with additional opportunities through the years (P.E., Computer Coding, Critical Thinking and more). Electives are organized by Sonlight program, but feel free to choose your own.
