Grade 6

Reading grade 6


Sunrise Edition

Sixth graders need examples of courageous men and women to follow. The reader Calls to Courage provides such examples: George Washington Carver, who coaxed poor Alabama soil into production; young Jakob, who discovered the meaning of the word responsibility; Judith, who found that maturity doesn’t come in the mail; Jack, the slave who found the most important thing in the world and suffered so others could have it too.

Along with character-building themes of contentment, courage, and commitment, the accompanying LightUnits help students understand and think deeply about what they read. They expand their reading comprehension and evaluation skills and apply important lessons to their own lives. Two or three lessons a week cover a year’s work.

An optional Teacher’s Guide provides brief teacher’s notes, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests.

Bible 6 lu set


Sunrise Edition

Sunrise Bible 600 picks up the study of the Old Testament where Bible 500 ended. It begins with Joshua and the crossing of the Jordan and closes with the return from the Captivity and looks forward to the coming Messiah. Each lesson contains a well-written Bible story and includes workbook activities. In the later LightUnits of the course, students begin reading from the KJV Bible as a part of their lesson text. Map exercises show the geography of the different periods covered.

Bible 600 has ten LightUnits with 16 lessons in each including the two quizzes and a test. This provides for one lesson per day for one school year. The Teacher’s Guides give objectives and suggestions for teaching each lesson, provides alternate tests, and include LightUnit pages complete with answers to all activities.

Language arts grade 6

Language Arts

Sunrise Edition

Language Arts 600 integrates grammar, spelling, and penmanship into one easy-to-use package. Grammar and punctuation skills are introduced incrementally at the beginning of each daily lesson, followed by exercises reviewing the latest material as well as more familiar, almost-mastered skills. Each day’s lesson concludes with penmanship and spelling practice.

In addition to the basic English skills, students study pronoun case and person as well as conjunctions and interjections. They learn to recognize and diagram appositives, complements, and direct and indirect objects in sentences. This study contains indepth paragraph writing based on the book On Teaching Writing.

The optional Teacher's Guide provides teacher's notes, spelling word lists, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests.

Math grade 6


Sunrise Edition

Math LightUnit 601 reviews concepts that should be adequately mastered in order to succeed in Level 600. It can be used as a diagnostic tool.

The remaining LightUnits introduce new skills and concepts in incremental, continuously reviewed steps. We teach the metric system simultaneously with the U.S. system of measurement.

We assume total mastery of the number facts in all four operations previous to Math 600. After Math 601, speed drills stop. This course covers three-digit divisors, decimal division, area and volume, using a compass and protractor, exponents, simplifying expressions, solving equations in two steps, estimation, and graphs and statistics.

LightUnit themes in story problems and random nuggets of information are based on noted mathematicians in history.

The Teacher's Guides give teaching tips, extra practice, solutions, LightUnit answers, and alternate LightUnit tests. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guides are purchased.

Social studies grade 6

Social Studies

Sunrise Edition

Social Studies 600 is based on Neighbors in Latin America, a beautifully illustrated full-color textbook. Units 1-4 cover the early history, geography, and climate of Latin America as a whole. Units 5-10 divide Latin America into regions and give specific information about the major countries in each region.

A limited number of activities appear in the textbook, designed to review only the highlights. For student work activities, choose either the workbook study or the LightUnit study for better coverage of the material. Either option is a full-year course.

The ten LightUnits match the ten units of the textbook. Two quizzes and a LightUnit test are included in each LightUnit.

The two-workbook option provides one worksheet per lesson and will require more teacher input. This option includes a pack of quizzes, reviews, and tests for each student.
