Product Description:

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 (3-5 year olds) but also serves as an encouragement to parents of young children by providing a simple Bible lesson at the beginning of each lesson. The gentle activities focused on early literacy skills are not meant to teach in depth concepts but to enhance your child’s awareness of the world around them and create special bonding time between you and your child. Focusing on play and discussion, one of the activities might include a rhyming exercise or an activity talking about one of the five senses. The activities are a bit more detailed than the Before Five in a Row book. StoryDisks, a Storybook Map, and the Animal Classification Game are also included. We will have a literature package for this volume as well. It will be available in August 2020.

Publisher Description:

Building on the foundation of the bestselling Before Five in a Row volume, More Before Five in a Row inspires your child’s learning through extraordinary children’s picture books while nurturing your relationship with them and making memories to last a lifetime! Designed for ages 3 through 5, this preschool and kindergarten curriculum is filled with lessons for you and your child to enjoy together and prepare your child for the lifelong adventure of learning.

Lessons covering six early literacy skills build a solid foundation for their future reading and writing success, while lessons covering science, social studies, applied math, language, and art concepts, playfully drawn from each story, boost their readiness for future academic endeavors. A focus on play and discussion-based learning favors the way a young child learns and retains information.

  • Lessons are drawn from a wide variety of outstanding children’s books, including All the World, Baby Bear Sees Blue, Toot & Puddle, and Mighty, Mighty Construction Site.
  • Teaching Tips throughout help you apply important ideas from the lesson to everyday aspects of your child’s life.
  • Animal Classification Cards help children develop simple, enjoyable classification skills.
  • Story Disks and a Storybook Map (black & white) provide hands-on fun for daily learning and prepare your child for later studies with Five in a Row.
  • Bible verses and devotionals (one for the parent, one for the child) are included for every book.

    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.

    My older kids used FIAR for kindergarten and we loved it. As we are homeschooling for preschool this year, I've been on the hunt for something to engage my preschooler. I decided to give MBFIAR a try because I've heard great things about this simpler preschool version. By all accounts, I think it will be exactly what I'm looking for!
