Scripted, Non-Consumable, Direct Instruction Reading Materials for K-3 Reading Instruction
Make it easy for teachers to provide quality reading instruction:
High-Engagement Reading Instruction for K-3 Students
Reading Horizons Discovery direct instruction reading materials provide teachers with scripted lessons for providing high-engagement reading instruction to beginning and struggling readers in grades K-3. The materials are aligned to individual state standards and most basal programs.
Deliver Differentiated Instruction to Students
Below, On, or Above Grade Level
For each lesson, teachers are provided with several activities for reinforcing lesson material. A differentiation table at the back of each lesson helps teachers easily adapt these activities to the needs of students below, on, and above level for the given skill. Through these activities, teachers can provide students with the practice that will build their current skill level and help them transfer decoding skills to connected text. Activities are included for whole-class, small-group, and one-on-one instruction as well as individual practice.
Scripted, Appealing Materials for Teachers to Use in the Classroom
Teachers are provided with six scripted manuals for teaching grades 1-3 and two separate volumes for Kindergarten instruction. The manuals are printed in a two-tone color that helps improve and clarify lesson organization.
The scripted lesson plans help with implementation by requiring little preparation time. In fact, a substitute teacher can easily pick up the manual and teach students high-quality reading instruction while a teacher is away.
Scripted lessons also ensure that instructional integrity is maintained. Teachers can be confident they have taught each skill as explicitly and as succinctly as possible. This helps students quickly grasp each new concept.
Non-Consumable Classroom Materials
Aside from manuals, each teacher’s kit includes non-consumable materials that can be used year after year to make instruction more engaging and interactive for students. This includes a Game Supplement and classroom posters. In addition, the Spelling Supplement is available to facilitate an integrated reading and spelling curriculum for students in grades 1-3.
