Horizons Preschool Curriculum Review
Review by Hearts at Home mom Brigette Taylor
My daughter and I love the Horizons Preschool Curriculum Kit. This Christ-centered curriculum has everything she needs for a complete well rounded preschool education. The kit contains 2 Teacher’s Guides, 2 Student Workbooks (consumable), a sing-a-long music CD, and a Resource Packet. These can be used for the home-school environment or for the classroom as well. The Teacher’s Guide’s are easy to follow and the lessons are already planned out for you. The are 180 lessons in all broken apart into two books.
The Student Workbooks are filled with full-color illustrations and activities that my daughter enjoys doing, and she loves singing along to the songs. My favorite part of this curriculum is the resource packet. It is loaded with over 300 pages of full color teaching aids like Memory Verse Cards, Number Cards, Shape Cards, Season and Month Cards. There are also full-color flashcards for numbers, alphabet, colors, shapes, seasons, time and months. Horizons leaves no stone unturned as there are also full-color illustrations of many other subjects in Bible, Science, Social Studies, Nature, Health & Safety, and Physical Education as well. Because the same ideas and illustrations are used in the student flashcards, the classroom size flashcards, and the student workbooks the teachings are rooted more firmly in her mind and she has gained confidence in her schoolwork.
Of course, no preschool curriculum would be complete without arts & crafts and the Horizons Preschool Kit provides plenty of that. She is excited about doing schoolwork everyday because she knows she will get to color, cut, and glue. I am amazed by how fast she is learning. I definitely recommend this curriculum for anyone with a preschool aged child, or even for those with K aged children who need to solidify the basics. Horizons Preschool Curriculum Kit is a product well worth the money spent. Your child will come through it more than ready for Kindergarten.
