Category Description for Five in a Row:

These literature-based unit study curriculum guides cover social studies and character, language arts, math, science, and art. Literature selections contain positive moral values reflecting Biblical values. Use as a stand-alone curriculum for preschool or supplement with phonics and math for older children. Curriculum is 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. There's plenty of text here as the author provides all the reference material you'll need right in the volumes as background for your studies. Hands-on activities and projects abound and there are plenty to choose from each day, using the literature selections as a springboard. The varying difficulty of the activities makes it easy to use with a range of ages. Very little teacher preparation is required. Once you have the needed literature selection, you can open the book and begin! Each book also includes tips for teaching the curriculum, instructions for creating manipulatives, a topical index, a sample planning sheet with a blank, reproducible lesson plan sheet, literary glossary, story disks, and suggestions for finding the reading books. Volumes 1-3 do not incorporate Biblical content, as this is found in the optional Christian Character & Bible Study Supplement, available separately.




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.

I perused the content photos and it looks like it will give me ready dialogue to interlace Christian Worldview into our lessons. It looks like it will save me legwork and having the Christian worldview is very important to our family.

I want to include Bible in our homeschool curriculum. This allows me to teach all my children at once. I like the idea of our Bible time together.

I looked at a review on You Tube about Five in a row and the lady said that this is definitely not Christian but secular. I was disappointed but went back to the FIAR website and and found this Bible Supplement.
Elizma D on Sep 27, 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

We did not intend to buy this as we have very good Bible supplements, however, the reviews on this supplement won us over.

I love the way you can integrate this through each lesson or however you choose to suit your needs.

As a beginner to homeschooling I want to be sure that our children receive Bible instruction in line with the other educational materials we present each day; I was so excited to learn that FIAR has a supplement wherein we can teach our children to think critically with a Biblical worldview.

Love FIAR curriculum and wanted a bible curriculum that went along with the lessons the kids were learning in their weekly reading! So happy I purchased this!

As I researched the different methods of homeschooling, FIAR is the one that jumped out to me and seemed like the best fit for my family. I am excited to supplement the curriculum with relevant and necessary moral, biblical instruction. I am eager to receive the FIAR Christian Supplement and begin our homeschooling journey with my 3 and 5 year-olds!

The Five in a Row collection was highly recommended by blogging moms that tend to recommend products that my family loves. The Christian Supplement is especially important for my family as it teaches biblical truths and forms a habit of referring to scripture in everyday moments.

First of all I need to say the Five in a Row volumes are an amazing tool for our family and the Christian Character Supplement is no exception If you are familiar with FIAR then you know that the books selected are outstanding and full of all things that make a good book touch your heart The idea of the Christian Supplement is like the icing on the cake for what is already an exceptional family experience If you are interested in taking the FIAR books and measuring the characters and situations they find themselves in against what Scripture has to say then this guide is your chance I would say that the Christian Supplement is easy to use and much simpler than the volumes themselves mostly using one page it cuts right to the chase: Scripture discussion It is handy to have your Bible and to have read the book prior so you can talk through the meaning based on what the book is about For example in Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel the traits discussed are flexibility trusting God willingness to serve graciousness stewardship and makes reference to the Bible using verses from Matthew Philippians Luke and John All of these are done is easy to use paragraphs From my experience it seems to me that if the child is able to grasp the book's storyline then it is almost easier for them to then grasp the Christian character examples because they have had a personal experience through the books I definitely do not think that I could have come up with so many different character aspects backed with Scripture like this guide has done It is a great thing to have this type of Godly reference to add to the already meaningful experience using FIAR books Well worth it!
