5 in a Row

This popular class is a literature-based unit study curriculum for young learners. Using well-loved and outstanding children’s books, this 30-week class is an “all in one” curriculum for young children.  Each weekly book unit explores social studies, language arts, math, science, art, music, and forming good character. We use food, music, various media and supplemental books to enrich the class for young learners.  The class will cover many of the basic social and motor skills found in a traditional elementary school setting:  working cooperatively, participating in clean-up activities, learning to ask for help, pencil and scissor practice, practicing independence,  as well as taking ownership of their bathroom and snack/lunch routines.  We will celebrate holidays and birthdays and special occasions as a class as well.  No reading or writing is required, and students will be assisted by the tutor and a class assistant.  The emphasis in class will be discovery, learning, socializing, and all the fun and fluffy bits of elementary school we all remember with a good balance of structured and open-ended time.

Since this class covers 2 typical class periods, there will be ample time to enjoy the planned activities and allow each child to work at their own pace.  We will have built in time for snacks and physical activity indoors or out as weather permits.  There will be no assigned homework for the class.

This is the 2nd year we are offering this class.  This is Cycle B which includes books from Volume 2 and 3 of Five in a Row.  (Cycle A was Volume 1 and part of Volume 2).  We will also have a few from Cycle 1 that are class favorites. (Wednesday & Thursday classes are the same material and content)

Class Homework Requirements:  Minimal, if any.  Outside reading or discussion is always helpful with young children, particularly about what they have done in class.  Parents are encouraged to read the weekly book at home on the non-class days so students can hear the story 5 times.

In the event that the COVID-19 pandemic affects our ability to meet in person in a classroom, I will make the following adjustments to this class:
I will post a recording of the book for kids to watch/listen and offer supplemental activities that can be done at home.   Items can be printed from Schoology.
