I was a little disappointed to see that some of the changes in the lessons didn't make it in to the teacher's manual and some weren't completely changed in the student's workbook, (i.e. a picture of a sheep that had the child writing "shed" underneath.) Other than that we love this series! My 6 year old does better at it than I do! She never fusses to do her phonics, which is a blessing!

This is the first time I have ever left a poor review of ANY product. I completely agree with "luvsjesus". And it doesn't stop there. When they commented about the stories being "weird" and "obnoxious" - that's EXACTLY what WE thought!! LOL! VERY STRANGE. Completely disappointed in this entire program. Bought a lot of it, too, and dropped it. We stopped using it. We wasted our money. I should have seen if I could have returned it, I guess. Too late now. I will never again buy ANY of the Horizons products simply because of the particular books I purchased. Don't even want to see what else they offer. Please don't waste your money and time. There are MUCH better programs available for your children!

I was reading the Reader 1 that is included with this set and "boom" right out of the blue was the donkey word that starts with an "A".
In this day and age, a child cannot call a donkey by it's original name in an elementary class. Can you picture them being in Sunday School and your child cries out in his/her innocence, "Oh that's Jesus riding an "a**" in front of the kids of today. That's a beepity-beep that just doesn't work because the meaning has changed in this millennium. I am disappointed that Horizons hasn't come to this understanding.
Also, some of the other stories at the very beginning were weird and obnoxious so I skipped them. I unfortunately feel I wasted my money here.

I have a 7 year old, and he is not a fan of phonics. Last year we did the Even Moor phonics (which was ok), but this year we chose to do Horizons Phonics and Math. So far, it seems very similar to last year's book, but the tests pages are easier for him to understand and do by himself. The pictures are cute and colorful, and the pace at which he is learning new concepts is perfect for him. Writing/phonics is not his strength (it's math), and although Horizons Math moves VERY quickly (which is good for us), the Horizons phonics moves along at a much slower pace. We are going to stick with the Horizons Math and Phonics for many years.
