We have spent sometime using mainly a natural learning ‘system’ if you can call it that. For this long it has been working for us.
Recently however Evie has wanted to do ‘school work’. This was extremely unexpected. I bought some simple work books for maths, reading, handwriting, and problem solving puzzles. Soon enough Georgia wanted to do ‘school’ to, so I got some books for her too.
We worked with these for a few weeks or so and I realised that we needed something more. I wanted to put in some history, bible study, geography. Before I knew it I was spending hours planning and didn’t seem to be getting any where.
That is when I found Sonlight. This is a complete curriculum, including planning timetables.
Sonlight is literature based learning, which suits my family just fine as we are all book worms.
I decided on the K level core package with the Singapore Maths program, and decided to make our own handwriting sheets using the weekly memory verse.
Look at all these lovely books.
I love them all. The girls were just as excited. Evie was begging me to start school work Friday afternoon. I let her start reading through the level 1 reader. I have to say I was impressed when she read the first five pages with relative ease.
I can’t wait to begin actually teaching and learning with these resources'.
