OK, so it's no surprise that I am a pretty big fan of our Kindergarten curriculum from Sonlight. I've blogged before at how easy it is to plan my day and how school is not a struggle when we reach for our Sonlight subjects.
Well, the honeymoon is over. I've found a flaw.
Time and time again, I've gone to our bookshelf to get our books ready for the school day. Without fail, there is always one missing. It's usually one of our read-aloud books, but sometimes it's the Children's Encyclopedia or the Llama poetry book.
You see Sonlight, you've chosen books that are just so much fun to read that my kids are constantly taking them off the shelf to read. My eldest daughter has gotten into the habit of taking our read alouds and reading them to her sisters. They hate having to wait for another chapter, so they do it themselves!
I don't know how I'm going to keep the books together to save for the younger girls because not only do they want to read ahead...they also want to re-read the books we have already finished!!!!
I understand Sonlight that you are fostering a child's love of reading, but for goodness sake, can you please make the books less appealing so my kids stop taking them off the shelf every single day?!?
I actually own two copies of the new Sonlight catalog...one for myself and one for the girls who are already asking for some of the books from Core B! If you haven't received your copy of the catalog you can request one here.
Be forewarned, if you do decide to use Sonlight, expect to search for your books on a daily basis. My tip: start looking anywhere your kids are.
