This is the first of two readers in Horizon's phonics program. It is designed to develop reading skills as the students master the phonics concepts. Lessons explore the phonetic sounds and guide the student as they practice each concept. The reader allows the student to apply the phonics concepts taught in each lesson. Memorization of phonics/spelling rules assists the student in recognizing the relationship between letters and speech sounds, a skill that will enable them to decode new words.
The readers in this aggressive program look like second-level readers; there are many sentences on each page.
The Grade 1 program covers what most other phonics programs cover in the second level. Lessons 1-30 review the sound/letter connections, consonant blends, vowel pairs, suffixes, and capitalization and punctuation. Lessons 31-60 review consonant digraphs, words with "x", contractions, compound words, and suffixes. Lessons 61-160 review the phonics rules in terms of multi-syllable words, prefixes, suffixes, and writing lessons.
