The strengths of the (Reading Horizons) program include the hands-on, interactive approach; the consistent way it is taught and the students' enjoyment of learning in this method. I like that it teaches the rules and gives children the tools to use to figure out new words and why and how these rules work.
It has helped my students by making them better listeners (and) write better formed letters, (and) gives them skills and rules to make them independent thinkers. The first year I used the program 13 of my 24 students were mixing b and d. By the end of the year all of them had mastered (up) b and d and had fun doing it. I really love using this program.
