For the past two years, we have been using “Five in a Row” to homeschool our preschool-aged daughter. It is a literature-based program that uses some of the best children’s books out there, using story elements as a jumping point for all kinds of learning.
We’ve had countless hours of reading, talking, playing, and exploring. We love the wonderful memories we are creating as we learn together as a family.
