Sonlight Preschool Material

Good Preschool Material

We used the P3-4 and P4-5 material from Sonlight, starting when the kids were 2 and 3 years old. Basically the curriculum involved reading a story to the children each day. The stories started with basic picture books and gradually increased in length over the year. I was delighted to see how the children's concentration improved over the year. The books chosen were all very good and we enjoyed getting to know what for me were old and new characters.

In the P4-5 curriculum, I only bought some of the books and not the curriculum. The Bible and "Right Choices" are excellent and we read them daily. The literature covers folk tales from all around the world to give the kids a good world perspective- I don't know why tigers always feature in African jungle stories though!

However, I am not planning to continue further with Sonlight. It seems that their material becomes more and more America focused, which is fine if you are American, but not what I want.
