Five in a Row Activities List Free Printable

A few years ago I struggled with finding the right pre-school for Connor, so I decided to homeschool him.

One of the first things I bought was a curriculum called Five in a Row. The premise of this is that you read the same book, typically a classic, every day for five days and do different activities with it.

I LOVED this and so did the kids…although I will admit with some of the books it did get a little old re-reading the same book day after day, but it allowed us to really examine different aspects of the book so it turned out ok.
