Interactive Reading Lessons for Struggling Readers
Explicit, Systematic Decoding Strategy Software Lessons
Fifty-six Skill Lessons instruct students on the strategies taught in the Reading Horizons method, including the 42 Sounds of the Alphabet, the Five Phonetic Skills, and the Two Decoding Skills.

These activities are patterned after Real-Life Reading Contexts to help students transfer the skills into fluent reading.
Lesson instruction includes:
- Short and long vowels
- Murmur diphthongs
- Special vowel sounds
- Exceptions to decoding strategies
