Fantastic Curriculum
This curriculum (supplement?) is fantastic for those kids who love to read and learn. I even enjoy learning alongside with my 3.5 yr old. I think this is pretty advanced for their recommended age of 4, but if you want to push them a little I think it's a great option. We plan on revisiting these books and curriculum when he's older to reinforce concepts and introduce new ideas (the ones he's too little to understand right now). I wouldn't change a thing though, as we've enjoyed this curriculum more than expected!

Enriching our studies, simply and effectively!
We have incorporated Five In A Row with our core subjects to add variety and interest for our elementary students in co-op classes. The students are enjoying the stories and activities. The teachers are able to easily find activities that fit our setting and group. It is also simple to add more if you have other ideas you want to use. Very flexiible and solid education resource.

The program is useful for busy people.
This is my first time venturing into the world of home schooling, so I'm new. My impression of this manual is that it basically encourages parents to find different things to talk about in each of the books. For example, in a book featuring a map, the manual encourages parents to talk about maps. In a book featuring a grandparent/grandchild relationship, the manual encourages parents to talk about grandparents. I think a lot of this could be pretty intuitive--just talk about different things in the books that you read. However, for people who are busy and do not have the emotional energy to figure out different things to say about each book, this could be a useful tool.

My son has Cerebral Palsy and I have had a hard time finding curriculum to use with him. Five in a row is just what we needed. I have used it with my other children as well and love the variety of activities to choose from.

We are loving FIAR!
Our family is loving the Unit Study approach with the guidance of Five in a Row. We are using it with our 7 and 9 year olds this year. It feels so much more cohesive than trying to use a random curriculum for science, history, art, etc. Highly recommend!

Love it!
I wasn't sure at first because I didn't understand what a unit study was and it looked like it was antique without the vibrant modern colors and designs. I have been blown away with this spiral book jam packed with great activities and questions to ask about THE BEST books that she carefully selected that both my daughter and I just love. Seriously it's a must purchase. It's not even as expensive as other unit studies that don't have the quality that this book does. It's a great deal.

Five in a Row offers different lessons for many school subjects while reading one book five times in a week. I am hoping this will save us the stress of putting together our lesson plans and also save us money.

A friend told me about this product and I read the reviews. I used the sample about 'the story of Ping' and it look like a way that can work for me and my 4 year old.

Used Before FIAR
Melanie Y on Aug 13, 2018
I used FIAR with my older children. We had a 17 year gap between our children and I am starting over. My first go to for school with my young ones is FIAR. This is a great curriculum and I look forward to doing it over again!

walter a on Aug 6, 2018
Our daughter will be beginning kindergarten this year. We felt that the Five in a Row approach would best suit her as it is engaging, provides well-rounded exposure to various subjects, and includes art/hands-on activities.
We can also incorporate Biblical principles to every book. That makes this a wonderful solution for our family.
Scott S on Aug 5, 2018
I'm very excited. It seems to fit well with the Charlotte Mason philosophy that we've decided to use for our family, especially for preschool age kiddos. I'm looking forward to using activities and conversations without having a structured "school time" for my 4.5 year old! Found out about this through a couple of friends within a matter of days, its a God send

kasey h on Jun 16, 2018
Decided on the single volume versus 3 in 1 because of reviews on it being too bulky. Also, this being the first time we've tried FIAR, thought it would be better to start small. (However, we do not anticipate not liking it.)

Good fit for a new homeschooler.

I was introduced to this curriculum through our homeschool co-op. I love the way it spends time on all the different subjects without the students really knowing it.

Mary P on Apr 18, 2018
When my daughter changed from AAR pre-reading level, to level 1, it kinda lost the joy, and I missed the unit study approach that didn't seem to carry over to the next level. We are continuing that curriculum at this time, but adding FIAR in hopes it will reintroduce a little more joy in the journey of learning and unit studies.

What edition is this?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is only a single edition of Five in a Row, Volume 1. However, several years ago the books were updated with new covers and spiral binding. We carry the updated cover edition.
Does book one cover a whole school year? Or do we need to buy all 4 books for a complete year?
Megan C on Apr 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: From the Five in a Row website: First of all, in the real world of home schooling few families study more than 30-35 weeks per year after holidays, illnesses, vacations, etc. So if you were to work straight through it would take about 2 school years to complete the FIAR lessons. But, with early learners you’re going to choose only one, or at most 2 of the simplest activities. Make a note of which lessons you’ve completed in the margin of your teacher’s manual and then when your children are a bit older you can come back a RE-visit this familiar, beloved story and complete the several other lessons you didn’t use the first time through.
Who did the video review for 5 in a row?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The video was prepared by a Rainbow customer.
Is the manual all I need?
Kendra P on Feb 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can check out all these books at the library if you want to save money and that way all you need is the manual. My sister in law does it that way. However, if the library doesn't have the book, you have to be somewhat flexible with what story you do that week. I bought the manual and the book package mainly because it seemed more convenient and I wanted to add to our home library anyway. The books are wonderful! We read them over and over! Part of the reason why I'm happy we bought the package. Hope this helps :)
