Some of my favorite homeschool memories include the years we were using the Five in a Row curriculum. Emily is into “serious” high school studies now, but we had a very relaxed start to homeschooling with Five in a Row—lots of snuggling on the couch reading books, and fun hands-on activities that brought the books to life.
Riding along in Mr. Gumpy’s Motor Car
Evaporating salt in How to Bake an Apple Pie and See the World
Making a model of the Boston Public Gardens while studying Make Way for Ducklings
The dining room table became “under the ice” in Very Last First Time.
Learning about Steam Power with Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel
Dissecting an Owl Pellet with Owl Moon
Five in a Row is one of my favorite curricula to recommend for families with young children. If you have a 4-8 year old, you should take a look at this program!
