Five in a Row Curriculum Review

Dates Used: 2003-2005
Likes: We loved Five a row!!! The literature is wonderful, classic children's literature. The stories are beautifully written, thought provoking and wonderfully illustrated.
It taught me how to teach in a natural way, from experiences I already had and how to share new experiences with my children. It is a gentle way of opening the world to children so they can learn about many different things.
Basically, you read a classic children's book five days in a row, each day discovering another subject related to the book. The repeated exposure allows the child to learn about various aspects of the book while seeing the book from a new perspective.
We didn't mind the research involved in gathering materials with this unit study style of teaching, but others can find it time consuming.
