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. 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 the teacher book and 2 student workbooks. Additional Student Worksheet Packets contain one photocopy of each reproducible master in the teacher book.

Please could I have the break down of individual items included in this set?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There is a list of all included components under the description tab. It may not be visible on a mobile device but is readily available when viewed on a computer browser.
Am I understanding correctly that everything in this kit and this price, includes both the Grade 1 AND the Horizons Kindergarten kit as well?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That is not quite correct. This kit includes all the manipulative items you need for Horizons 1st grade course. The items included are listed on the website but it is a little confusing because some are identified as K-1 Add-On items. This is a subset of the set - the items needed for 1st grade that were not included in the K kit. There are a few additional items such as two-color counters that are needed for K that are not in this kit. If you need a kit for both the K and 1st grade levels, I suggest you get the K kit (#HZNKAD) and the K-1 Add-On Kit (#HZNKAD). For the record, none of these manipulatives kits include the course materials (i.e. workbooks and teachers manuals).

Shipped Partially
I would have cancelled this if I had known it wasn't going to be shipped as a set but come in here and there. Very unhappy with this purchase.

Great package
Great package, overall. There were some items I didn’t personally like, but other than that, I’m grateful for this package! It has saved me a lot of time trying to find the items on my own.
