Understand the Assignment: Beyond the Books

About This Event

The assignment is to homeschool, but it's more than the books themselves. It's relationships, helping your children thrive, making time for what matters, and providing the best education possible.

Join the Sonlight community for a one day ultimate online event. You’ll gather tips to tackle homeschool challenges, hear from industry experts, draw from the experiences of Sonlight veterans, and be encouraged to navigate the new year successfully. This could change how you homeschool!

You will take away realistic suggestions for academic frustrations, insights on homeschooling advanced students and those with learning challenges, tips and tidbits for addressing behavioral issues, and the reassurance & confidence of finishing up (or beginning) your homeschool year.

This event includes panel and influencer sessions led by homeschooling and industry experts ranging from 30-60 minutes. Or if you’re short on time, there will be several 10-Minute Topics that pack a lot of information into only 10 minutes! Watch everything or just what matters most to you whenever you’d like.

Panel sessions and 10-Minute Topic details are listed in each session's description below.

Everyone who registers for this event is automatically entered to win a Sonlight History/Bible/Literature Curriculum package! Additional giveaways including books, math, science, and language arts programs, Sonlight Gift Cards, and even an All-Subjects Package will be offered to attendees of the various sessions!
