I am so far behind in posting on our Five in a Row books, but I am now attempting to catch up! Last September I spent two weeks rowing a wonderful book from Volume 1 called “Who Owns The Sun?” with my youngest three.
Popstar is completing Volumes 2 and 3 of Beyond Five in a Row for this school year. Her first book from Volume 1 was Sarah, Plain and Tall. She started it back in August and finished up in September. This is such a wonderful book and there were so many fun activities that go along with it!
Back at the end of August, I finished up our second Five in a Row book with Flash, Hulk and Princess. The book was Gramma’s Walk by Anna Grossnickle Hines. We had a lot of fun with this book. Most of our focus was on the beach, ocean, lighthouses, etc. and that is always fun! We spent two weeks in August on this book.
This school year I am doing a mixture of Five in a Row Volumes 1, 2 & 3 with Flash, Hulk and Princess together. We recently finished our first FIAR row of the new school year with the book Henry the Castaway from FIAR Volume 3. It was such a fun book and a great way to start our new school year!
I got so behind with posting about each chapter that Popstar does for her Beyond Five in a Row and realized that it was too much for me to keep up with. So, from now on I have decided to just write one post at the end of each book and to post about all of the highlights of what we did with each book. We typically spend anywhere from 1 to 4 days on each chapter and have finished one book every 2 to 3 months of the school year.
Her last Beyond book from this last school year was Betsy Ross, Designer of our Flag. She started this book at the end of March this past school year. She finished it up by the end of May, when we were done with our school year.
Ask Mr. Bear was the very last Before Five in a Row book that I did with Princess! We finished this one back in May. (Don’t you just love that beautiful smile?! I just can’t get enough of it!)
Chapter 17 was the final chapter in Popstar’s Beyond Five in a Row book, Thomas A. Edison Young Inventor. We finished it up back at the end of March.
Popstar finished up Chapter 16 of her Beyond Five in a Row book, Thomas A. Edison Young Inventor, back in March.
Popstar finished up Chapter 15 of her Beyond Five in a Row book, Thomas A. Edison Young Inventor, back in March.
Back in March, Popstar finished Chapter 14 of her Beyond Five in a Row book, Thomas A. Edison Young Inventor.
