Pubisher's Description:


Visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners and teachers will all benefit from Five in a Row’s variety of lessons and activities which are carefully laid out and available for you to choose whichever one fits your schedule for the day.  Expect to be ready to teach with as little as five minutes of preparation time. You’ll find everything you need to be an effective teacher at your fingertips- pronunciation guides to foreign words or phrases, background information on history, geography, art and science lessons, facts, figures, and activity suggestions for a wonderful variety of hands-on learning experiences.


Five in a Row was created by Jane Claire Lambert, a successful homeschool teacher with more than 17 years of experience.  To use Five in a Row, just pick one of the 70 books used in Five in a Row, locate the corresponding lesson plan in your teacher’s guide, read the story aloud each day during the week and use Jane’s suggestions and lesson plans to lead your children on a wonderful learning adventure. It’s that simple!


Five in a Row is comprised of 4 manuals.  

Volumes 1-3 contain units that are all written at about the same level based on books at about the same level, and the units can be completed in any order.


The units in Volume 4 are based on more difficult literature, cover more challenging concepts and designed to be completed over a two week period of time. Together, the four volumes of Five in a Row contain 70 unit studies covering Social Studies, Geography, Language Arts, Applied Math, Science and Art in a way that causes children to fall in love with learning.
