|Horizons curriculum is published
by Alpha Omega Publications, a Christian publisher.
We highly recommend Horizons to families who are looking
for materials that move at a more advanced pace. When
you compare the Scope & Sequence, you will find that
Horizons is clearly ahead of many homeschooling materials
on the market. Before you purchase, please take a look
Scope & Sequence to see which grade level
will be the best for your student. Horizons curriculum
is workbook based and is meant to be used with parent
instruction. The teacher’s guide gives helpful tips
and answers for every question and as mere time savers
alone; they are worth the extra investment.
Horizons Math uses spiral learning, meaning the concepts
are repeated throughout the course in a spiral method.
This works well for students who can focus on more than
one concept at once, as it does not bore these students
with needless repetition. Horizons Math (Kindergarten
through 6th Grade) moves at an advanced pace and students
are typically ready to move into Pre-algebra by the
time they are done with 6th grade.
Phonics is a great program for teaching your children
how to read. It goes through all the letters and sounds,
giving your student a solid base for reading. Horizons
Phonics is colorful and very engaging, and this program
moves at a more rapid pace finishing in the 2nd grade.
Horizons also offers Spelling (1st grade –
2nd grade), Penmanship (1st grade-5th grade),
Health, and PE. The Preschool material covers a
variety of topics, and incorporates Scripture
throughout the material. We sell Horizons both as individual
books and as subject sets that come packaged together.
