Reading Horizons Discovery Kit Review and Giveaway
As the mom to a now four year old, I have been immersing BJ in an array of homeschool projects. Since I am homeschooling our oldest it only seems natural to really get my little guy into curriculum based programs now. We have had the pleasure of working with the Discovery K-3 Reading Horizons kit for the past 3 months.
Reading Horizons Discovery Kit
The entire kit is a bit overwhelming at first glance. There is a ton of information and quite honestly I was scared to throw to much at my little guy. Being that he was only 3 when we started, we eased into the kit spending 30 minutes a day learning to recognize the alphabet.
The teacher manual’s are amazingly easy to follow. They give you enough information to become a “teacher” without fear. The teacher instructions are set up to prepare you as a teacher of (1) or a teacher of an entire class. From preparing your classroom to the best ways to dictate information the manuals dive into all of the important components to benefit your child. An enrichment CD is included with worksheet style printable pages and other beneficial implements.
We have made our way through identifying the alphabet and most of the letter groups. BJ is now able to identify common words and is excelling in putting letters together. The kit also contains a games supplement. Full of games that are perfect for “learning while you play”. Overall the kit has been a great asset and is preparing our little guy for a great future. I am thrilled that we have come so far in three short months and excited for how the rest of the kit will be.
This kit is intended for new readers and readers who are having a difficult time, or need other strategies to help them succeed. I am enjoying the flexibility of implementing certain features that work for us. As we all know kids learn differently what works for one may not be the best strategy for others. With the wide variety of printables The reading horizons kit contains so many different tools that it has been so easy for us to find what works.
Keep up with me on the blog and I will be sure to keep you in the loop on our progress.
