STORY DISKS & THE FULL-COLOR, LAMINATED STORYBOOK MAP!
Story Disks are circles that have an image that corresponds to a picture book used in Before, More Before, or Five in a Row Volumes 1-4. 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. You will need to purchase the full-color, laminated Storybook Map to use with your lessons. See the description below for more information on how you’ll use the disks and map.
The disks are used in Five in a Row Volumes 1-4 as a geography aid. You cut out the laminated disk and using teacher’s putty, you’ll 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 Five in a Row you would 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, and 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).
For Before and More Before, you will use the Storybook Map as the map to find each location of the story disk. The locations are listed in the teacher’s manual at the end of each unit. For instance, while doing the unit on the story Owl Babies (More Before), your child will find the hollowed-out tree on the map to place the Owl Babies story disk on. This is to begin learning map skills which will lay a foundation for the future geography lessons they’ll do in Five in a Row. You might choose to ask some basic questions like, “Is the hollow owl tree above or below the lake?” The Story Disks and Storybook Map are optional but will provide a rich learning addition to your studies.
(Black & white versions of the Story Disks and Storybook Map are included in the manual. The full-color, laminated Story Disks come FREE with your manual purchase, add the full-color, laminated Storybook Map to your cart to purchase.)
