All Time Favorite Five in a Row Lessons

By 7:00 AM , , , , , , ,

I  started this blogging journey 4 years ago while just homeschooling my then 4 year old son with Five in a Row.  Fast forward 4 years, a couple more kids, and 500 play and learning activities shared with ya'll since we have moved on from Five in a Row, and it has been on my mind lately to share some our favorite activities.  We created a lot of special memories!

Homechooling with Five in a Row

We rowed almost every book listed in Volumes 1-3!  We really enjoyed many of the stories, with a few mixed in that were just "okay."  Some rows we really did a lot and added in some fun activities, other times we kept our rows converstational.  There were a few times I thought we wouldn't like a book, but ended up loving the storyline {like Grandfather's Journey} or didn't so much enjoy the storyline but added in some really fun activities {like Clown of God}.

I think one thing I loved about Five in a Row was experiencing the books through our math, social studies, language arts, science, and art lessons.

I also loved searching for go along activities from other blogs, and often found that no two rows were exactly alike!  Five in a Row created some fun memories and here are a few of our favorites:

1. Swimming with Moonjellies | Night of the Moonjellies

2.  Visiting a Japanese Grocery Market | Grandfather's Journey

3.  Playing the Harmonica around town | Lentil 

4. "Snowplowing" inside our house | Katy and the Big Snow

5.  Making the Eiffel Tower | Madeline

6.  Making Clay Salamanders | The Salamander Room 

7.  Re-creating the story | The Story of Ferdinand

8.  Making Grandmother's special Cranberry Bread | Cranberry Thanksgiving and our 2014 Row

9.  Feeding ducks | The Story About Ping

10.  Making a Snake Egg | When I Was Young in the Mountains

11. Armor attire | The Duchess Bakes a Cake

12.  Snowflake Art | Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening

I must say, reminiscing and choosing our favorite memories out of many great lessons and books was a bit difficult!  However, these 12 memories stand out the most.  I really tried to make our rows special with fun activities-- the pictures may not have always been pristine-- but I hope the activities made the story come alive.  I really did enjoy our two years spent with Five in a Row and am looking forward to rowing again with Little Sis when the time comes!
