Completely redesigned and updated throughout, Five in a Row Volume Four, 2nd Edition, is an easy-to-follow, highly effective instructional guide for teaching Social Studies, Language, Art, Applied Math and Science using outstanding children’s literature as the basis for each weekly unit study.
Five in a Row, Volume 4, covers the same subject areas as Volumes 1-3, but the picture books in this volume have greater complexity and depth, making them more appropriate for older elementary-aged students. Because the books are more complex, the lessons are as well. You’ll find more lessons in each subject area, with topics designed more for older children than those for Volumes 1-3. For this reason, you’ll row each title for two weeks instead of one. Scroll down to get a sample unit from Five in a Row Volume 4 based on Roxaboxen.
Lessons are designed for children ages 9 and up, and include discussion guide and questions, teacher answers, hands-on activities and suggestions for further study. New features in this second edition include What’s Different About Volume 4; Teacher’s Notes pages for every title, providing a place to record lessons, go-along resources, favorite memories, and more; and Activity Sheets for every title that support and add to the lessons.
The Second Edition of Volume 4 is designed to prepare your child for the next step in the FIAR curriculum: a transition to chapter book studies using a very similar approach to learning that students and teachers have come to love. After completing Volume 4, you and your student will be ready to take this next exciting step with Volume 5 of Five in a Row. (Volume 5 will be published and available for purchase by the end of 2021)
