My Sonlight Shelf

Every year when the new Sonlight catalog comes out and the homeschool convention season approaches, I take inventory of my Sonlight library. I check to see which books are still on the shelf where they belong, which have "walked away," and which need to be replaced. I don't yet have a complete collection, but I'm getting really close!

I organize my books with color-coded spine labels. I use a white label (printed on regular address labels) identifying whether the book is a reader, read-aloud, history, or science book. Then I add a small strip of colored paper indicating to which level of Sonlight that book belongs.

Did you know that Sonlight levels are color coded? Just do a search on the Sonlight website for "labels."

Check out my Supplementing Sonlight page for links to activities to enhance your read-alouds and readers!


  1. I home schooled my only granddaughter, she went to work before she took her finals. I am proud to say she went to take her GED exam and scored high in everything but math and they are going to help her with that. It was a experience I would not like to repeat. Have a great week.

  2. Thanks for stopping by and following my blog! That shelf is amazing! We just have 2 cores right now (working on 3!) and now that we have more than one core, I think I'm going to finally use those labels on my books. A project for the weekend, perhaps? ;)
    LOVE your blog!

  3. Drooling over the organization here! My shelves NEVER look this good!

  4. How big is that shelving unit? In case we wanted to build one like it!

  5. love the labelling idea! I think that I may just muster up enough enthusiasm to relabel what cores we already have with a while label like you have - awesome! :)

  6. Oh I just LOVE your bookshelf and those books! Gorgeous. Such beautiful eye candy.
