Supplementing Sonlight Core A

Please note that these links may not be intended for the same age-range that this particular Sonlight Core is designed for. Also, many of the educational webpages I have found were put together by public school teachers, and are intended for classroom use, so they'll need to be modified for homeschooling.

Update: For a much more in-depth list of supplemental resources scheduled to go with your Core Instructor's Guide week-by-week I highly recommend Sonlight's Core Tips CDs. This is a product I developed for Sonlight and update each year. (Regrettably, I no longer have time to keep these pages as up-to-date as I would like, though you are welcome to continue to use them as long as you find them helpful.) The Core Tips are currently available for Cores A-E.
