The Reading Horizons Program has definitely played an integral role in the success of my students. I have noticed that my English Learner (EL) students seem to really soar within this program. I believe the systematic way that words are proven help the EL population greatly. I had an EL student that came into my first grade classroom below grade level. She was only reading 1 word per minute at the beginning of the year and was considered "intensive" for reading benchmarks. After daily use of RH, she has made great improvements. She now reads 23 words per minute with 82% accuracy and meets or exceeds benchmarks goals for mid-year! She is a confident reader and now loves to read where she didn't before. I am excited about her progress and I am excited to celebrate her success.
