Reading Horizons Review: Dawn Grayson

Tags: Direct Instruction, Elementary, Implementation, K-12 Intervention, Methodology, Results

I work in an urban area where most of my students speak English as their second language. I have worked at this school for five years in the first grade. This is my first year teaching with Reading Horizons. On our recent NWEA map scores, all of my ESL students that I teach in reading, met or exceeded their reading growth score. Many of them grew by double digit numbers. We have had the highest scores in Reading in First Grade than we have in two years. I love the way that Reading Horizons meets my students where they are. It allows them to feel successful and not get frustrated with materians and curriculum that is too challenging for them. I have seen my children succeed in reading more this year than any other year I have taught. I have shared my thoughts and inspiration with my administration and with all of my colleagues at my school. I am truly inspired by this program and I have seen it work. I believe that when we teach a child to read, we give them the greatest gift we can give them. If they can read, they can succed in every other aspect of their academic lives. I am so excited to be able to share this gift with my students and with other teachers so that they can also share the gift of reading with their students. Reading Horizons works. I love it and I am a life long believer in its power and influence.
