Reading Horizons: Discover Intensive Phonics

 
I have four children within the ages 2-5
with my oldest starting 
Kindergarten 
and the others soon to follow
I wanted to be able to help my kindergartener
with his phonics and assist in the preparations
of the younger siblings who will all be starting school within the next three years.

Reading Horizons has an absolutely awesome program, 
Discover Intensive Phonics for Yourself,
which I used to work with my oldest child to help prepare him for kindergarten and also as 
an added instruction in the evenings when he got home from school.



 So, what exactly is Discover Intensive Phonics for Yourself?
This program is an explicit, systematic phonics program that employs a multi-sensory approach to teaching basic words attack/reading skills. This program can be used for whole group instruction or for small group instruction.
 
When I first received my Reading Horizon's Package,
I was super excited when I opened it up, 
and then I saw all the books and posters, 
I will admit,
I was a little bit overwhelmed.
 After sitting in my livingroom floor
staring at all this material, I finally caught the nerve to just open up the folder and glance over everything and get a feel as to what I had just gotten myself into.
 
This kit included
Volumes I and II of Discover Intensive Phonics for Yourself  Teacher's Manual 
(Elementary Education)
 Discover Intensive Phonics for Yourself Sound Essentials
(Elementary Education)
4 Story Books: 
Little Red Book: Stories 1-9
Little Blue Book: Stories 10-17
Little Green Book:Stories 18-27
Little Orange Book:  Stories 28-32
Discover Intensive Phonics for Yourself  Elementary Enrichment CD
and
Phonics Posters.
 
Once I familiarized myself with how to actually instruct with these materials 
I got my son to come over to the table so I could start interacting with him and the materials.
At first, 
he seemed a bit confused but once we started using the curriculum
and he started understanding what was going on
he was having a complete blast! 
I definitely found that the more encouraging I was for him the more positive reaction he had towards this program.
It definitely says a lot when the other three started showing interest in what we were doing.
 
 What is the desired age group for this program?
This program features activities for a range of ages and is ideal for 
Children ages four to nine
Kindergarten through third grade regular classroom and whole-group instruction
Kindergarten through Sixth grade SPED and small group instruction
Response to Intervention programs
Learning Disabled, including Dyslexic
and
English Language Learners
 
What Can You Expect with the 
Discover Intensive Phonics for Yourself Program?
In elementary schools nationwide, students of all ability levels have shown advancements  averaging one or more grade levels in a single year using the Reading Horizons Approach.  Students not only improve reading above grade level, but the also improve their spelling, vocabulary, grammar, handwriting and listening skills.

Can you imagine how things would be if everyone used this program?
We have only been using the program for a few months and I have already noticed a significant change in my sons skill levels I can not wait to see results after a year of this program.

I have a 3rd grader that is struggling with reading while my 5th grader is excelling. This may be the answer to all of our stress. Thanks for the review.
