Success Stories from New Jersey
I have seen the tremendous growth in my students from September until June! Because this program has been utilized a few years I can see the retention of skills mastered from first grade when I get them in second!! The Orton Gillingham methodology is proven again and again!
Prior to using Reading Horizons, I didn't feel like my phonics lessons were as meaningful and purposeful as they are now. Now, there's a procedural way of teaching each lesson so that students are gaining mastery of the skill, rather than a set of words that follow a pattern.
My students' diagnostic and Lexile results have improved. They enjoy being able to work independently on the program during small groups. The games are also fun as well as educational for the whole group, even those who don't need to direct instruction.
