This is another addition to the exciting and innovative Horizons curriculum line. Similar to the other Horizons materials, there are 160 lessons and 16 tests contained in the two student workbooks. The Teacher's Handbook includes a student page along with the instructions and information needed for the lesson, as well as plenty of tips and teaching strategies. Language development begins with listening and is followed by speaking. Reading skills develop as the students master the phonics concepts. Readers allow the students to apply the phonics concepts taught in the lesson. Memorization of phonics/spelling rules assist the student in recognizing the relationship between letters and speech sounds, a skill that will enable them to decode new words.
Level 1 contains five items - A Teacher Handbook, 2 Student Workbooks, and 2 Student Readers entitled The Fox in the Box, and The Deer in the Woods.
