Before Five in a Row Review

After three years of using Before Five in a Row, homeschooling mom shares what she loves about this homeschool unit studies curriculum. Read her review...


I love Before Five in a Row course for my young child because it is easy to follow. I have used it for 3 yrs. I first began using ideas from the book when my child was 18 months old. We would read together and then work on the lessons from the book together. So, since then, we have redone a lot of those first lessons. We still read the books together and I give direction but now, at 4 yrs old, my child is able to do most of the lessons without my help.

I find the best thing about the course is that it promotes parent/child togetherness. I also found it very affordable, finding it at a garage sale. I have also seen it available at libraries in my area. If found at a library along with the corresponding story books, this course can be of a very minimal cost.

Rachel,

Before Five In A Row Homeschool Review

by Keely
(Victoria, Texas, USA)

Before Five In A Row is filled with excellent books and easy, hands-on activities for homeschool preschool children. Read this mom's review to learn more...

We have loved Before Five in a Row. The booklist has been excellent for my 2.5 year old son. We bought all the books we could find, including out of print ones when we could find them for a reasonable price - and read them over and over.

The activities are just right for a 2 -3 year old, but could easily be stretched to challenge a 4 -5 year old, especially if paired with the free lapbooks on homeschool share that coordinate with most of the BFIAR books.

Some have said the activities in Before Five In A Row are obvious things that you would "do anyhow". Maybe those moms are more creative than I am :) I find the ideas in the book quite helpful as a guide for exploring new concepts and projects on a simple level my 2.5 year old can understand. If you are not a natural with kids or a veteran parent of multiple kids - you will probably like the ideas and find them helpful.

BFIAR also has a great section after the book section with general parenting ideas for interacting with and teaching toddlers (with ideas for crafts, music, gross and fine motor skills, and other things - even how to keep your toddler entertained in the grocery store). Overall well worth the purchase.

Excellent Before Five In A Row homeschool curriculum review, Keely! Thanks for taking the time to share with others - your thoughts are so helpful! Blessings, Heather :)
