July 6, 2007, Newsletter Issue #184: Homeschool History And Literature

Tip of the Week

If your children are tired of reading dull, drab history from textbooks, you may want to consider having them learn history through literature. Your children will be transported back in time and relive history with historical figures during important times in the world. Literature based curriculums are fun ways your children can get their homeschool history credit without falling asleep in the process. Books on biographies not only teach children about the character of the person they are reading about, but it also teaches them about the culture, events and traditions of different time periods. It takes history out of the past and makes it come alive in the present in your child’s mind.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
