Sonlight curriculum covers three ages in one grade which is so handy for close together kids. Their kindergarten includes ages 5-6-7 so I opted for that grade when we started in the summer since the girls were 5 and 6 at the time. We were able to finish up all the work by Thanksgiving so I decided we would take some time off until January.
I had this lovely vision of reading aloud, cozy mornings, getting Christmas projects done, etc. I've been a mom for seven years but I'm obviously still delusional. Life quickly slid into mass chaos and the world owes me sort of attitude. I ordered the first grade curriculum and decided the school break was over.
Everyone was very excited when the box of new books arrived!
My opinion of Sonlight after using it for a whole grade level is still very high. Is it perfect? No. There were one or two books I didn't care for and one we didn't use at all because I didn't like the kids attitudes. But was it an excellent fit for us? Absolutely! All of the nitty gritty
work that I don't enjoy, like remembering to order library books two weeks in advance, is done for me so all I have to do is teach which is the part I love.
