We’re planning to home school, so I’m starting to test the waters to make sure it’s going to be a good fit with Zoë. We’ve been working on the basics, like letters, rhyming, beginning spelling, numbers, addition, etc.
So I’m really excited to try the Reading Horizons Intensive Phonics Program with her! It is designed for children ages 4-9, and for homeschooling beginning readers, struggling readers and children with dyslexia.
The program includes a variety of materials that make it simple for parents to teach their children all of the skills they need to read words of all lengths.
These two scripted manuals provide parents with all of the information they need to teach the 68 skills taught in the effective Discover Intensive Phonics for Yourself methodology.
Sound Essentials Manual
This manual contains activities and materials to enrich and reinforce the methodology taught in the instructor manuals. It’s divided into practice pages, games and activities, and instructional aides.
Reverse Listening Cards
These 616 cards give parents a way to test their child’s ability to read and decode at incremental levels. They provide guided reading and writing activities, help develop independent work and provide word banks for dictation.
Set of Little Books
The Little Books include short stories that are designed to enforce and transfer the skills that are taught in the methodology into everyday reading passages.
Featuring 42 sounds, blends, MCW, 5 phonetic skills, 2 decoding skills, vowels.
I love how comprehensive this program is – we’re really looking forward to getting started. Be sure to subscribe to Happy Mothering so you can get updates on our progress.
