My students are deaf or hard of hearing, and as always, we (teachers) are trying to find better ways to teach reading foundational skills to help them decode words better. I have taught kinder for almost 7 years, and I have found that Reading Horizons is one of the best programs out there that helps break down and develop these foundational skills. I have seen improvement with my fluent readers as well as my beginner readers. They are becoming more confident in explaining why a marking needs to be there. This really helps them understand what they are reading.
