We are excited to announce that Five in a Row by Jane Claire Lambert is available again at CHER!
When Moms ask what I would have used to teach my 4 to 8 year old, I have to say my favorite unit study is still Five in a Row. A literature-based unit study, Five in a Rows now being enjoyed children around the world!
When a group of homeschool moms get together and the talk turns to Five in a Row, you will hear comments such as I love Five in a Row!! and My kids love Five in a Row!
If you are new to Five in a Row, let me tell you a little bit about the program. It was developed by Jane Claire Lambert, a homeschool veteran of 12 years. Each week you read to your child one of the fifty five stories that have won various awards such as Newberry Awards for excellence in literature and Caldecott Awards for excellence in illustrations.
Good literature is a wonderful way to introduce our children to the world around us. Jane Lambert has taken these classic children's stories and successfully developed unit studies which include art, history, vocabulary, geography, science, character qualities, math, language arts, literature studies, health, and writing. Most of these favorite classics used in FIAR are available bundled with the FIAR Volumes, individually through our website, or your local library.
Also included in FIAR are a suggested schedule, weekly planner, maps, and appendix full of helps for each week. The three volumes of FIAR could be completed in a year if you include the summer weeks, or you could go for a year and a half if you take summer, Christmas and other breaks. You will need to add math and phonics instruction to complete your program.
FIVE IN A ROW Volume 1 covers 19 favorite children's titles including The Story of Ping, The Rag Coat, Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel, How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, Who Owns the Sun, A Pair of Red Clogs, Night of the Moon Jellies,Madeline, Cranberry Thanksgiving, Stopping by the Woods on the Snowy Day, and Who Owns the Sun .
