Another big focus in Horizons is hands-on learning using a variety of manipulatives, which can mostly be found around the house: pencils, pipe cleaners, play or real money, thread, a timer, clock, yardstick, etc.
Novice home-educators should not be intimidated by the amount of teacher involvement as it is carefully layed out in the beginning of each year's teacher handbook. The teacher handbook also provides a variety of teaching suggestions and supplemental activities for additional practice.
The concepts covered in Horizons K include:
- Counting 1-100
- Number Recognition
- Number Writing
- Number Value
- Number Before, After, and Between
- Place Value
- Addition and Subtraction
- Number Theory
- Direction and Position

Homeschool Mom1 Stars Out Of 5The teacher's guide is not detailed enoughMarch 16, 2013Homeschool MomQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1This is my first year home schooling my 5 year-old, so I would very much like a lot of explicit instructions in the teacher's manual. This is just not the case with Horizon's program. It will say, "Teach the octogon." Okay, what exactly am I teaching? Number of sides? Length of sides? Interior angles? What? I don't know what's important and I don't want to have to sit and think about it. I can only imagine how tough it will be in higher grades where the matial is more advanced. Look elsewhere if you're new at this like I am!
SherryConnecticutAge: 35-44Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5No help at allSeptember 8, 2012SherryConnecticutAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I bought this curriculum thinking that activities would dominate our homeschool lessons which is completely contrary to what it actually is. As a former teacher, I have had to employ a LOT of ideas from other sources as the teacher guide simply says, "Teach tally marks" rather than giving ANY ideas for activities or hands on tasks. After a week and a half (and looking ahead in planning for next week) I am BORED with this curriculum and have just purchased a different curriculum which gives more ideas and is much more hands on.
I am very disappointed to have wasted my money on a product that did not live up to its description.
Mrs SueAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5May 21, 2012Mrs SueAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I will be using this program next school year, but it looks amazing. I used Horizons Preschool curriculum with my twins, and they have learned so much. They are more advanced than their peers attending kindergarten. I chose the Horizons Kindergarten curriculum because of the great success we've had with the preschool curriculum, and I cannot wait to get started with it! I gave the curriculum 4 stars because I haven't actually used the product, but I'm sure it will meet my expectations.
TaraGeorgiaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5My daughter loves Math because of this book!January 4, 2012TaraGeorgiaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My daughter has always liked math,but shes never been excited to do it until we started this curriculum. Its fun engaging and Challenging. This is a fast paced curriculum so not for the slow learners. I love it because she practically teaches herself with a small bit of help from me here and there. If your child learns fast and loves a challenge this is for them.

But this for more advance student ready to go at the spend they set. I spent 6 months trying to get son keep up with what felt a breakneck speed for a K. Other programs first grade cover many thing covered in the first book. we never started book 2.
Q: What is included in the package? I want to purchase the complete set of Horizons Math for Kindergarten but cannot tell from the item description what is included in the package.
