Reading Horizons helps my ESL students with pronunciation, reading, and spelling. The program gives the students a roadmap to make sense of the language. English pronunciation and spelling is often extremely confusing to ESL students, but Reading Horizons gives them the tools to see the patterns and to master the words on their own.
I have been amazed at the improvement in spelling and reading fluency this year. The reading library is a great complement to the phonics instruction. It gives the students a chance to see the newly decoded words “in action.”
Many of my students also see the connection between what they are learning and what their children are learning in class.
