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.

FIAR picks the best books to keep

After pricing out the options on Amazon (with free prime shipping), this package was a much better deal.

I have heard a lot of great things about this curriculum. My eight year old does not have a love for books and I am hoping to inspire that in her. She is the only one of my six children that does not. I think she may have gotten lost in the shuffle with read alouds so it is her turn now.

All FIAR books are keepers. We use the library for a lot for school, but FIAR books are so nice to have.

WE LOVE FIAR...best way for us to learn AND actually REMEMBER what we have learned.

came highly recommended, but I'm finding I'm not following many of the activities suggested as they are not very appealing to my children

Five in a Row has been recommended by nearly every homeschooling mom I have met. I can't wait to try it. I compared the price here to other places and even buying them used, and I this was the best price.

Is volume 4 suitable for my 7 and 10 year old? they are both late bloomers in reading
A shopper on Dec 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used this with my 7 - 8 year old for part of her 2nd grade curriculum. We loved it. The content in volume 4 is a bit more advanced than volumes 1 - 3. Though you could have the student read the books, the curriculum calls for the parent to actually read out loud so your child is not expected to read these books. I definitely think you could use this with a ten year old if you went more in depth with the content (supplementing with library books or other materials, etc) however, as is, it might be a little young for a child that age. I believe it is recommended for around 3rd grade so it wouldn't take too much to make it work for 2nd or 4th graders. Overall I think this would be suitable for those ages.
Are all the books hardcover?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: In my set, only Hanna' s Cold Winter, Pumpkin Runner, and Cowboy Charlie are hard cover; the others are paperback.
Does the set come with the guide?
A shopper on May 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it does not. The guide is sold separately. You do not need to buy all of these books if you have access to a good library, but you will love them, so if you can afford them, they are definitely worth the price!
