Here are some quotes from a few of my students on the phonics skills taught in Reading Horizons:
"When I'm not sure how to pronounce a word, I think about phonics."
"When I feel frustrated with some words when I'm reading, I decode them. Then I can understand."
"I use phonics when I am helping my children to read longer words. I break the word into syllables and prove the word. That makes it easier for me to help my kids."
