Category Description for Horizons Curriculum:

Alpha Omega Horizons is a Bible-based, fast-paced, spiral approach to learning introduction, review, reinforcement. This works well for students who catch on quickly, with constant review that keeps concepts fresh. These are teacher-led courses with colorful student workbooks and thorough teacher manuals. This curriculum offers two courses at the preschool level Preschool for Three's and Horizons Preschool, something not offered in other AOP curriculum lines. These two levels lay a solid foundation for future elementary levels. Although not available for as many subject areas as LIFEPAC or SOS, Horizons is comprehensive in the subjects that are offered. Math is available for K-8, Phonics & Reading for K-3, Spelling & Vocabulary for 1-3, Penmanship for 1-5, Health for K-8, and Physical Education for PK-12.

Alpha Omega Horizons now offers complete curriculum sets for kindergarten through 3rd grade. At the kindergarten level, the set includes Horizons Health, Horizons Phonics & Reading, and Horizons Math. First through third grades sets include Horizons Math, Horizons Health, Horizons Phonics & Reading, Horizons Spelling & Vocabulary, and Horizons Penmanship. These sets include all of the required books for each subject both student and teacher.


Category Description for Alpha Omega Mathematics:
A complete, Christian math curriculum that emphasizes skill mastery. Each Complete Boxed Set contains ten LIFEPACs and a teacher guide. The only exception is the Grade K Boxed Set, which contains two student books and a teacher guide. Review and self-tests are built into the curriculum. LIFEPACs are thin, consumable student work texts. They are colorful in the elementary grades, but become less colorful as the grade level increases. Each set of ten LIFEPACs provides a year-long curriculum.

The spiral-bound teacher's guide contains a curriculum overview, teacher's notes, answer keys, and suggested guidelines (for scheduling, grading, study methods, etc). Daily lesson plans are not included. Teacher guides for grades K-1 provide more detailed teaching instruction than guides for grades 2-12. Why? Because the LIFEPAC curriculum facilitates the independent study approach. Starting in second grade, written instruction is included in each LIFEPAC so that the lessons are largely self-instructional. The teacher's responsibilities include introducing each LIFEPAC, setting a schedule, completing teacher checks, being available for student questions, administering and grading tests, and developing additional learning activities.

You might be wondering, "What's the difference between this curriculum and Horizons Math?" After all, both programs come from the same publisher and follow a similar scope and sequence up to the sixth grade. The main difference, in my opinion, is that Horizons is not self-instructional (written instruction is not included in workbooks). Another difference is that LIFEPACs offer standard practice problems whereas Horizons offers a greater variety of problems (mazes, coloring, decoding, etc) as well as standard drill, but LIFEPACs provide many more problems per workbook page. ~ Anh


Category Description for Horizons Math:

Admittedly, no math program will work for everyone - but I find few flaws in this motivating and well-laid out program. Although it may be more advanced for grade level than the "average" program, I don't consider that a negative. Because of the developmental approach to learning in this program, even a non-math type can easily succeed, while the "math whiz" will be challenged by the advanced topics introduced early. Concepts are introduced incrementally, then practiced, developed, and continually reviewed as other concepts are introduced. Pertinent Biblical concepts reinforce the math lessons, also. I found these to be interesting and appropriate to the material, not "forced" as mere add-ons. Horizons lays a solid foundation for numerical literacy with an early emphasis on hands-on, concept learning via manipulatives and one-on-one lessons. The program relies on few separately purchased manipulatives by utilizing common household items and including charts and number lines found in the teacher's handbooks. A useful table in the handbook shows the integration of manipulatives in lessons so you can tell at a glance just what you'll need. Analytical reasoning and mental acumen are stressed throughout the series, and memorization and drill are not neglected. The teacher handbook is the heart of the program, containing daily lesson plans that are easy to implement. Reduced student pages are a tremendous aid in planning and supply answers to the worktext exercises. Besides plans, the handbook contains an overview, materials list, activities, and supplemental worksheets (approx. one for each 4 lessons). Designed for homeschoolers, the activities, language, and lessons require no alteration. There are 160 lessons per level, each requiring approximately 20-30 minutes per day. Tests are given after every 10 lessons to assess retention of cumulative skills. While a good part of each lesson is oral (especially at the K level), the enticing, colorful student worksheets lay foundations for lessons and review concepts previously taught. There are two workbooks per grade level. Please note that the actual lesson is to be taught by you - there are only brief instructions on each page of the workbooks, which are not intended to be self- instructional. Boxed set contains teacher book and 2 student workbooks.Additional Student Worksheet Packets contain one photocopy of each reproducible master in the teacher book.

We have been using these books from the beginning and we love them! Not only are they visually attractive to the children, as they are very colorful, but they are great books with a wide rage of math and very repetitive, this ways kids don't forget what they learned in previous chapters.

I'm homeschooling, and my oldest daughter (7 and in 2nd grade) loved the first workbook. I love how this curriculum introduces new concepts slowly and builds knowledge and skills at a good pace. I also appreciate the continuous review of mastered concepts!

SUSAN on Sep 18, 2018
We have loved Horizons math for years. Our twins went from level one through level six. It was the first curriculum for elementary math we thought of for a little one joining us this year. It's easily portable, the pages are interesting and inviting, the explanations are straightforward, and it cycles back through each concept so nothing is forgotten.

The spiral approach to math is the only way my girls learn math and so few programs use this method, we love Horizons math!
User on Aug 3, 2018
When it comes to math workbooks, I really like Horizons level 1-3. They are easy to use and challenging for the child. However, no math program is complete without having standard math manipulatives on hand to teach new concepts.
Vivian L on Jul 29, 2018
I was given the workbook 1 to check out for our first year of homeschooling from a fellow homeschooler. My daughter picked it up so easily. She was in kindergarten but did the 1st grade set. The spiral learning method has worked out great for us and we will continue with this curriculum. It is very colorful and easy to understand.

I absolutely love Horizons Math! I have used them with my two oldest children. My oldest is now in Math 4. I like that it offers a spiral approach so the 'teaching' time is not long when a new concept is introduced and my kids seem to gain confidence in their math skills.
Hillary H on Apr 8, 2018
I've been using Horizon's Math for almost 17 years now. I like how it covers a wide range of topics, including spelling number words, roman numerals, telling time as well as learning basic math operations. Plenty of review built in and my kids always like the colorful lessons and puzzles.

Rebecca E on Sep 21, 2017
I love the Horizons Math series because its bright and colorful. There aren't an excessive number of problems in any one activity (which my daughter appreciates because a sea of problems overwhelms her), and it spirals!
Sharon B on Sep 11, 2017
Horizons Math is challenging, colorful, and can mostly be done independently once the student understands the basic concepts. It skips around to different topics, which is nice because the concepts weren't sticking well with the mastery approach program we were using the year before.
Amy G on Aug 18, 2017
Used several other math curriculums and horizons is my favorite by far

Excellent!
We love Horizon's Math books! They are not only colorful, which the kids love, but very advanced in their math approach, very repetitive so kids don't forget what they've learned. It's fun and beautiful, but the most important, academically advanced.

Time tested winner for early grades!
We are starting our 4th kindergartener in Horizons math this year! It fits us well. Love the spiraling concept as everything is reviewed so no skills are lost. Pages are colorful & practice activities hold the attention of all our kids! Also, last year we switched our oldest, who was beginning 5th grade, to Saxon (it fit our need better as Daddy was taking over math). He took the Saxon placement and easily tested into the 7/6 Saxon book, which is a tribute to the thorough design of the Horizons math line. It's a keeper! And I'm planning to use it with #5 in a few years too!!

Great textbook!
I am a private school teacher who happens to homeschool my kids in my "spare time". Horizons Math offers a simple yet academically rigorous way for my son to learn math. He can complete skills (multiplication, Roman numerals, and so on) that I know for a fact have not been covered in his "grade". I can't say enough about this curriculum!

I have found Horizons math to be thorough and enjoyable Lessons are colorful and include several different exercises for example a single lesson may cover time money addition multiplication and word problems This keeps each function fresh in the student's mind The only problem I've found is that each set is about a year ahead of my child's level so in 4th grade she's using level 3 etc Also additional practice in multiplication has been necessary Overall it's the best program I've found thus far
