Category Description for Five in a Row:

This series provides a wonderful way to nurture your relationship with your children and foster a lifelong adventure of learning. The Five in a Row title comes from reading the same classic children’s book five days in a row as a literature-based unit study to cover social studies, character, language arts, math, science and art. Use as a stand-alone program for preschool, or supplement with phonics and math and use it with older children. Literature selections contain positive moral stories that reflect Biblical values. Choose from many possible activities for each day.

The original Five in a Row series was written three decades ago for the previous generation of homeschoolers. Now, the author’s children have undertaken the task of modernizing the series and updating the literature lists. All books in the series will eventually be revised; however, at this writing Volume 4 and the Beyond Five in a Row series are still in the previous edition.

Before Five in a Row has much the same content as the original book, but with three additional stories included. There are also updated illustrations,Animal Classification Cards that help children develop simple classification skills, and StoryDisks and a Storybook Map (an enjoyable way to teach where the story takes place). This book is a collection of discussion and play-based lessons to do for 10-15 minutes 2 or 3 days a week. It doesn’t follow the typical 5 day a week schedule. The first of two parts list the 24 stories, along with creative activity suggestions such as examining the stars or using colored tissue paper to make a simple collage. The second part is filled with ideas to build a foundation of readiness – talking and listening skills, coordination skills, activities in the kitchen and other primary skills.

More Before Five in a Row is the new addition to the series and includes 14 new books. It has been specifically written as a preschool curriculum (ages 3-5) and follows the typical format of the Five in a Row books. New to this book, however, is an encouraging Bible lesson before each story written specifically for the parent. Many lessons are built around six early literacy skills: vocabulary, narrative, print awareness, phonological awareness, letter knowledge, and print motivation. The gentle activities are not meant to teach in-depth concepts, but to enhance your child’s awareness of the world around them. Centered around play and discussion, the program provides a wide variety of activities involving science, social studies, Bible, language arts, health and much more. An Animal Classification game, StoryDisks and a Storybook Map are included in the back. The activities are a bit more detailed than in Before FIAR.

Completely redesigned and updated, the second edition of the Five in a Row volumes 1-3 still have the same goal of providing elementary students with a quality educational foundation through well written and illustrated books. All you will need to complete the curriculum for 5-and-6-year-olds is a good phonics program and a simple introduction to math. For children who are reading successfully, you will want to supplement with math, spelling, penmanship, and grammar material if you desire to teach those as individual subjects. The new editions include special teaching tips from the author (including step-by-step guidance for each day of the week), along with an explanation of the philosophy behind the program. There is also a “Teacher’s Note” page and activity sheets following each book lesson. The “Teacher’s Note” page is handy to record relevant information such as activities done, library resources or videos used, and any field trip opportunities taken. The three or four activity sheets for each book title correlate with some of the activities and really add to the program. These sheets are reproducible for family use only. The books in each program remain the same with a couple of exceptions. They Were Strong and Good was taken out of Volume 2 and The Old Woman Who Named Things was added to Volume 3. Literature packages contain all available books for each volume. ~ Gina

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 am excited to use this curriculum (ordered using our own funds) with the Five in a Row curriculum approved by our public charter school for the science, social studies and literature requirement. It's nice, in our situation, that these are two separate materials, as one is approved by the school and the other isn't!

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 am using Five in a row with my children and wish to reinforce character development with Bible stories.

Love the FIAR concept but am even more excited to have a biblical application for each story!
Lydia B on Dec 27, 2018
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.
Jennifer D on Nov 20, 2018
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

To supplement Five in a Row literature components with character and scripture for my daughter.

We did not intend to buy this as we have very good Bible supplements, however, the reviews on this supplement won us over.
Debra M on Jun 11, 2018
I love the way you can integrate this through each lesson or however you choose to suit your needs.
Danielle S on Nov 11, 2017
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!
Laura C on Sep 6, 2016
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!

Tierza B on Aug 15, 2016
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.
Kristal W on Aug 6, 2016
Love the option to add this to FIAR Volumes 1-3. Bible and Christian Morals are important in this school!

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!
