We’ve been homeschooling for over ten years, so we’ve used a variety of curriculums and resources over the years. Our favorites have always focused on rich literature and hands-on experiences for the kids.
Five in a Row is one of them.
If you’re not familiar with Five in a Row, it is a literature-based unit study curriculum. In each unit, the children are introduced to a children’s book and read the same book five times in a row, each time focusing on a specific area of study.
Through the power of story, the children are introduced to a variety of learning opportunities and academic subjects, including social studies, art, geography, science, math, language arts, and more.
For example, the curriculum provides ideas for vocabulary development, art observations, and discussions on human relationships. It shares simple math activities, focuses on figurative language, and provides guidance on science connections. Each story has different areas of focus that can be used in a variety of ways to cover a number of different homeschool subjects.
In this video, I share how we have used Five in a Row in our homeschool, along with a lap book I created for The Rag Coat. You can download the lap book for free in Member Freebies. Simply sign up here for instant access.
