Free Before Five in a Row Resources
I heard about Five In A Row and Before Five in a Row a few years ago from another homeschool mom. I know she has used FIAR for the last 2-3 years, but now has a harder time finding the free resources since Homeschool Share reorganized their website and got rid of the B4FIAR and FIAR resource page. I know other mom’s who would love to be able to find resources that are current and FREE!
Since I plan to dabble a little bit with Before Five in a Row I figured I might as well share what great resources I have found with anyone who could use them! I know a lot of people already know about most of these sites and resources, but some have moved locations. I also wanted to help out any new ROWERS and give them a quick and easy place to jump start their planning:)
Before Five in a Row Link-Up of resources and Blogs:
You will definitely want to check Delightful Learning’s website, resources, and Link-ups by volume and book. Michelle also has a blog listing for families to post their links for FIAR post! Tons of treasures to be found here.
Animal Classification cards:
Homeschool Creations has tons of FREE printable packs that are listed below. Make sure to stop by and save your pdf files into nicely organized files for future printing and learning. I suggest using Google Drive to sort all of my homeschool freebies!

Thanks for putting it all in one place! Pinned.
You are quite welcome. I’m hoping this will be a quick reference for my family as well as all ROWers out there:)
What a great list of resources and links! Thanks for sharing and for linking this to the B4 General Resources on the link-up!
You are so welcome. Your website is wonderful!
Thank you so SO much for these!! What a gift!

Thank you so much for sharing resources for BFIAR. I adore this curriculum but find that it can be time consuming to gather supplementary print outs and theme packs that tie in a solid foundation of math and phonics concepts. Your blog has made that process easier.
As a homeschool mom and fellow ROWer, I love sharing resources that can make life easier with others. One such blog that I have found is https://littlelearninglane.com. It is a new favorite and prior to starting a new theme. This site offers many freebies along with a ton of other extremely comprehensive resources. The blogger also has links to you tube play lists that can be used in conjunction with each story and she is constantly updating her site to include more BFIAR books.
Thank you for providing a platform for sharing resources that make our passions of teaching our littles possible.
Thanks for commenting and sharing more free resources! I will be sure to add them in when I get a chance.
Wow. This is great. Would really love if you put them all together and created a workbook to have all together without hassle of downloading/printing. Just food for thought. Were always given an inch and want a mile don’t we? 😉
The resources listed in this post are not mine to create a workbook with sorry.
