Sonlight P4/5

Less a rigid curriculum and more a way to cultivate a love of learning in four- and five-year-olds while building parent/child relationships, Sonlight P4/5 focuses on read-aloud books introducing world cultures, reading and language arts, science, Bible, and art. None of this is covered exhaustively; instead, books are colorfully illustrated and accessible in order to pique young curiosity and provide a foundation for further study.

A Readiness Skills program offers workbooks for evaluating your student's progress and discovering their strengths and weaknesses in terms of audio/visual, motor, and comprehension skills. Like the earlier Sonlight year, this one requires no lesson planning, and allows busy parents to fit reading and "school time" into their busy schedules as they can and see fit. With daily activities all enjoyable and easy, and taking no more than 20-90 minutes a day, this is a great starting place for young scholars.

Please Note: Sonlight Curriculum does not sell their materials to Exodus Books. We carry many of the same titles, and are often able to obtain used copies of books they publish. The following is culled from their 2013 websiteand includes much of their selection, though it is not comprehensive, nor is it in any sort of curricular order. For a complete listing, visit the Sonlight Curriculum website.
