Full-Color, Laminated Story Disks
Story Disks are circles that have an image corresponding to each picture book used Five in a Row Volumes 1-5. They are available in black and white at the back of the manual for you to color in or have your child color in. Full-color, laminated disks come free with your manual purchase from fiveinarow.com.
The disks are used in Five in a Row Volumes 1-5 as a geography aid. You cut out the laminated disk and using removable teacher’s putty, your student will attach the disk to a world map or U.S. map on the location that the story takes place. For instance, while studying the Madeline unit of from Volume 1, you’ll discuss the geography lesson from the manual that talks about how Madeline lived in Paris, which is in a country named France. Then you would go to the world map with your child and find France, then Paris, and place the (Eiffel Tower) Madeline disk on that location. You can review this each day (taking the disk off after your lesson so that your child can find it again tomorrow on the map).
