Sonlight question
by sdgd21

We will start sonlight this coming up school year, we normally do ambleside online, so we are use to a lot of reading. Any tips or warnings to share for the new year? Is there a good place to buy used?
Thanks
Diana.

    Is there a reason why you chose to switch?

    The later years for Ao
    Are not working for my oldest son,and I need to make sure he's college ready.
    I have friends that use sunlight and their children are absolutely brilliant, and most of them are about ready to go to college. But above all that I have a new baby on the way, and I need better organization.

    Congrats on your baby on the way!


    We use Sonlight and have for the last two years.  I love the IG's because I am not the most organized and need that structure.  I would say to just take a little time to prepare.  I didn't last year for DS Kindy and I felt a little behind all year.  But that was my bad.


    I know that I was looking at used books I think I googles used Sonlight and then whatever core you are looking for.  Sorry that I can't remember what website it was on but there are a lot of places out there that sell used for Sonlight.

    No problem........we are expecting also and are starting back next week to get a jump on the school year.  Hoping we can get far enough ahead so that when #4 comes we won't fall behind.


    I just wish I could remember what that site was.......I will try to see if I can find it again.

    I think it might have been this one.......although I was thinking it was a little different.  If you have the list of books you are looking for it would help.

    Haha, I'm dec 3, we usually take off for thanks giving, and if all is well light work for 1/2 of dec. so I might just take dec off for baby, and catch up in the summer.
    Boy or girl?
