Beyond Five in a Row is similar to Five in a Row in that it is based on quality literature, academically rich and focused on enjoying the learning experience. It is different in that the books chosen are chapter books rather than picture books, and half of the books covered are biographies. Each book unit is designed to take six to eight weeks to complete, and there are three volumes of four units each and one additional unit – enough schooling material for two to three years, depending on your student.
Beyond Five in a Row includes creative writing or essay projects with every lesson, social studies (including history, geography, human relationships), science, vocabulary, career path studies, and much, much more. All you’ll need to add is daily arithmetic and the trio subjects grammar/spelling/penmanship. Everything else is included!
