K-3 READING INSTRUCTION & INTERVENTION
The Reading Horizons Discovery products provide teachers with the tools and strategies for assuring that each student has a solid foundation in reading. That way, students can find fun and adventure in reading—instead of frustration.
What is the Reading Horizons Approach to K-3 Reading Instruction?
Learn how you can prepare every student for reading success:
Explicit & Systematic Reading Instruction
To expose teachers and students to the explicit steps required for reading, Reading Horizons begins with a simple, streamlined framework that can be used to read the majority of the words in the English language:
- Sounds of the Alphabet
- Five Phonetic Skills
- Two Decoding Skills
To make this framework engaging, appealing, and sensible for students, Reading Horizons incorporates multi-sensory, Orton-Gillingham principles of instruction and a unique marking system into its approach.
Why Does it Work for Beginning Readers in Grades K-3?
Because the core of Reading Horizons framework only requires students to remember seven rules that can be applied to the majority of the words in the English language, it is easy for students to remember. This, paired with the multi-sensory nature of the program, is the reason students grasp the program more readily than alternative programs. The number of decoding rules is significantly lower than even the closest competitive product - making it the most accessible to beginning readers and at-risk students.
What Reading Skills Are Addressed?
By including exercises, activities, and games that build phonics, vocabulary, spelling, grammar, pronunciation, fluency, and comprehension skills, this time-tested, research-driven approach helps students master decoding skills and grow in every area needed for reading success.
Is it Practical for the Classroom?
Along with teacher training, Reading Horizons offers user-friendly, age-appropriate products that make this approach simple and practical to implement:
Interactive software provides students with highly-differentiated reading instruction—delivering robust progress monitoring data to teachers.
Direct Instruction Materials
Short, scripted lesson manuals make it easy for teachers to prepare each lesson, while maintaining the integrity of the program.
