Sonlight Core 1 Extras
There are m.a.n.y. extras we could have added to core 1 but these were the ones we ended up using, or using portions of ...
We also used various sticker and activity books that were of interest at the time, those we haven't listed as most were puchased as end of the line sales.
We checked the links below first
I'll list the History links after the Read Alouds, but lets start with few extras for the whole core first.
And I'll add right at the top here ... for some ANCIENT HISTORY extras don't forget to go over and visit Nadene's blog, Practical Pages, for some great Sonlight Core 1 extras, some of which are ancient history paper dolls (or people as she titles them).
**For those that would like a schedule all.typed.out with extras to read and do for Sonlight Core 1, pop over to the Sonlight forums and send a private message to Xzavan, she has an amazing line up of links, books, crafts etc... to go with each week of sonlight.
Veronica (Xzavan) has her blog here.
