Category Description for Five in a Row Literature Unit Studies:

These literature-based unit study curriculum guides are so named because you spend five days in a row (a full week; one day for each subject area) using a particular children's book as the theme for multiple academic subject areas. Five in a Row (FIAR) Volumes 1-3 cover social studies and character, language arts, math, science, and art through 15-21 children's books. The literature selections, primarily picture books, contain positive moral values reflecting Biblical values. Christian content is not incorporated in Volumes 1-3, but is available separately in a Christian Character & Bible Study Supplement. Five in a Row Vol. 4 is for slightly older students (Grades 2-4) and features fewer books, some of which are stretched to two weeks of lessons. Christian content is included in the Volume 4 guide.

Before Five in a Row takes the same concept, but simplifies it for ages 2-4, with multiple activities provided for each book, but not as structured between days of the week.

Beyond Five in a Row is the next step up (for Grades 3+), and these guides are structured around chapter books. Activities at this level incorporate history, geography, science, language arts and fine arts with Christian Character and Bible content available separately.

Category Description for UNIT STUDIES:

What is a "unit study"? Briefly, it's a thematic or topical approach to teaching as opposed to the traditional by-subject approach. Rather than teach each subject separately, a unit study attempts to integrate many or all subject areas into a unified study - usually centered around a particular subject or event. Obviously History (the study of events) and Science (the study of "things") are well-suited to unit studies, and usually form the "core" around which other subjects are integrated. Subjects like Bible, Geography, Government, English (writing), and Reading/Literature, Music, Home Economics, Life Skills, and Art, are usually easy to integrate around a core topics. Remaining subjects (Math, Phonics, Grammar, Spelling) can be integrated to some extent via related activities. Each, however, has its own "system" (progression of skills, mastery of "rules") which must be followed to some degree. Since one of the additional advantages of a unit study curriculum is the ability to use it with students of varying ages and skill levels, these subjects are generally taught apart from the core curriculum. This may be as simple as assigning pages in a grammar or spelling book, or using a separate "program" for Phonics and Math. Unit studies also tend to be more activity-oriented than the traditional approach, a real boon to kinesthetic learners. Advocates of the unit study approach site studies showing that children learn best when learning is unified rather than fragmented and when learning is more participatory than passive.

We used FIAR for 1-2 grade and loved it. I tried more traditional methods for 3rd grade and we are moving back to FIAR.

Is this for grade 3?
Emily on Mar 26, 2021
BEST ANSWER: This is for a mature grade 3. We are doing the lessons, but sometimes at a minimal level. It’s still very much worth it and the lesson suggestions adapt to a range of ages.
What history is covered in this book? (Some examples or types of history or periods covered)
A shopper on Dec 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi, Thank you for the inquiry. The history studies in this guide align with the literature selections. For example, while reading Neil Armstrong-Young Flyer, you will study tri-motors in 1924,the story time frame of 1936, Kitty Hawk and the Wright Brothers (early 1900s); England, Prussia and Germany --late 1800s/early 1900s, Hawaii and Pearl Harbor (1940s), President Truman (1945), history of NASA (1950s), Korean War, first man on the moon (1969) and other related historical tie-ins.
In the book The Cricket in Times Square, the history and geography of New York State/NY City and mass transit is covered, along with other related topics. In the book, Marie Curie, events of the late 1800s are covered, including the Spanish-American War. Students also learn about the Treaty of Versailles and World War 1.
In the book, The Saturdays, Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany is covered (with cautions if the child is emotionally and intellectually old enough to understand); and an overview of Paris France's history is taught. A brief intro to Benjamin Franklin and Christopher Columbus are included.
