This is the second of two readers in Horizon's 3rd grade phonics program.
The first portion of the Horizons 3 program reviews all the sound-letter combinations in the context of reading practice. The second section deals with word usage, including rhyming word, antonyms, synonyms, homonyms, homographs, and contractions. It also covers the different patterns for building words, roots, prefixes, and suffixes. The last section covers past tense, compound words, commonly confused words, and words borrowed from other languages.
The second reader in the series contains lessons 81-160. Stories include Puss in Boots, Rumplestiltskin, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, The Traveling Musicians of Bremen, Jack and the Beanstalk, Clara Barton, John Sphilip Sousa, The Pony Express, God Loves Me, and The Ransom of Red Chief.
The stories are about two full pages of copy, divided into spaced paragraphs, preparing emerging readers for the next step of beginning chapter books.
