Five in a Row is a complete curriculum in and of itself, but we offer a few other products that will enhance your homeschooling experience and encourage you and your child in your lifestyle of learning! Each of these resources is a delightful complement to any curriculum. They are not specifically designed only for Five in a Row users.
FIAR NOTEBOOK BUILDER
A 120+ page document full of notebook pages for any topic or unit of study. This will enhance your Five in a Row experience and be usable for years to come, even after your children graduate from FIAR. We designed this for ages 4-14, and for that reason some pages are provided in 2 versions – one for a younger child and one for an older student, though many other pages can be used for all ages because of their versatility. While this product was created with Five in a Row and Beyond Five in a Row lessons in mind, it can easily be used with any topic or unit study. The pages do not contain book titles or character names, rather they offer a scaffold for bite-sized research and exploration that can be applied to any topic over a number of typical subject areas. This Notebook Builder can easily be used by any homeschooling family, regardless of their curriculum choice.
FIAR NATURE STUDIES
Knowing that planning your own nature study can be a time consuming task, Jane has written a nature study for each season to encourage your entire family in your exploration of all four seasons! These Nature Studies can be used by any family, whether or not you are using Five in a Row. There are tips for season specific nature walks, other outdoor activities and artwork and poetry appropriate for each season. There are suggested books to read for each season and suggested nature guides, as well as how to use them. Included are also printable, season-specific, journaling pages for all ages that can be used more than once each season and year after year. Richly illustrated and full of easily accessible ideas, you’ll be delighted with this valuable resource, and you will feel as though Jane herself is joining you and your children on a nature adventure!
Each volume – $16.00
The Five in a Row Planner™ was created to simply and practically plan your days in a beautiful format, completely customizable for whichever Five in a Row level(s) you’re using! It also includes a Volume 4 level Five in a Row unit for the delightful book, Paper Lanterns.
FIAR HOLIDAY – THROUGH THE SEASONS
A complement to any lifestyle of learning, this book is different from the Five in a Row manuals. It doesn’t give a specific book to study for each holiday, rather it is a treasury of traditions, memories and ideas for making your own! Each unit also includes calendar pages, blank pages for recording your own memories, and combinations of traditions and recipes, book and movie suggestions, quotes, decorating ideas, and more! It is sold as a complete set and divided into two month portions, with the exception of November and December which stand alone. Additionally, we have Holiday Fold&Learns that are free for all blog subscribers!
Each volume – $6.00 | Full Set – $34.00 (Save $4.00)
