Friday Flashback: A Story About Ping

Rowing A Story About Ping

Note: I’m not one, but two weeks behind in posting our Friday Flashbacks! Oh well. I’m not sure if I’ll double post one day or “catch up” (ha, right!) but this Friday actually happened 2 weeks ago. Yes, I’m perfectly aware of my posting abilities. Or lack thereof.

This week in school, we used our lovely Five in a Row curriculum to “row” a book called, The Story about Ping.* This story, by Marjorie Flack, has reached classic status. I was particularly interested to row it because our last row, Storm in the Night, wasn’t well received by my literature critic! Fortunately, she loved it, and was quite upset the following Monday when I announced we were done with Ping!

    Can I ask how you come up with all of the activities that you do for each book?

    We are just starting HS and trying to figure things out.


    Love your blog

    • Stephanie, I need a whole post on this. The short answer is: googling. :D The long answer is that I spent TONS of time seeing what other moms did. And you know what? We hated it. Yes, we enjoyed the activities, but half of them (ahem, NOT pictured) my daughter got frustrated or cried through. It was too much. I quit FIAR altogether then I slowly turned back to it. And you know what? I’m just using the manual. We’re talking about the book and the pictures and a bit about the country as it comes up. Surprise surprise: it really does WORK in its simplicity!
