Horizons Math Curriculum

Horizons math curriculum (published by Alpha Omega Publications) has worked well for my elementary aged sons.


The pages are colorful and have scripture references. The work is challenging and presented in a cyclical approach, so that the concepts learned are periodically being reviewed.

Extra worksheets are included in the teacher manual and lesson plans are clear and easy to follow. I highly recommended Horizons homeschool math curriculum.

Horizons Math Kindergarten - 6th Homeschool Review

Learn more about Horizons Math curriculum from this busy homeschooling mom of seven...

We are just beginning to the homeschool journey with our 5th child out of 7 and have two more beginning in the next few years. Our journey has taken us to many math programs but we always come back to Horizons Math for Kindergarten through 6th grade.

The math concepts are presented clearly and provide lots of review without making the children feel like they are doing the same things over and over. We have been using this math since 1996 with a few breaks to try out other products.

It is very affordable, which is necessary for a large family. There is not much planning needed by mom. We save the teacher's guides and just have to purchase the student books each year.

Thanks for your helpful Horizons Math review, Kristi! I appreciate the time you took to help others! Blessings, Heather :)

Horizons Math Level 2

by Jodi Peterson
(Massillon, OH, USA)

Horizons Math has been our favorite since kindergarten. My daughter loves it so much that she accidentally picked up book two this past year and decided she was up for the challenge of skipping ahead!

The lessons are easy and fun with lots of review. None of the lessons become repetitive and boring because it moves quickly through 2-3 new concepts while effectively reviewing old ones. We will be moving on to Level 3 with full confidence that she is working slightly above her current grade level!

Jodi, what a great Horizons Math story! Thanks so much for sharing it to help others learn more about Alpha Omega's Horizon curriculum. Blessings, Heather :)

I have used Horizons homeschooling Math books for K, 1st Grade, and currently for 2nd Grade. I enjoy using them immensely. I feel like the order of the skills taught makes sense, and builds upon previous skills taught. For example, when my 2nd grader was first being introduced to double digit subtraction, the curriculum had already prepared her by teaching ahead of time how to regroup the ones place and the tens' place, making it easier for her to understand how to carry.

The lessons are challenging enough for me as the teacher to feel that my student is learning and being stretched. The pages of the workbook are easy to read and colorful, and my student actually enjoys doing the work. The Teacher's Guide is informative and helpful, giving ideas for supplemental math work, and also taking the teacher step-by-step through how to teach each lesson. The curriculum can be expensive, but it seems to be comparable to other popular curriculums out there. Overall I am very happy with this product.

Thanks for the well-written and informative review of Horizons Math curriculum. Your thoughts are very much appreciated, Gabrielle! Blessings, Heather :)

Horizons Math, Phonics, and Reading

Horizons Math, Phonics, and Reading Review

Horizons Math, Phonics, and Reading Review

We absolutely LOVE the Alpha Omega home school Horizons Math and will be using it for the 3rd year in a row when we start up our new school year. We tried the Horizons Phonics and Reading for Kindergarten last year and my daughter is already reading at her sister's 3rd grade level.

I was nervous at the thought of teaching Phonics since it was my first time, but Horizons does a GREAT job of it, though it is a pretty intense program so it may not be suitable for all learners. My daughter WANTED to learn to read so her determination and motivation probably helped her get to where she is today.

Thanks for sharing how Horizons is working for your family. I appreciate your comments. Blessings, Heather :)

Alpha Phonics

Thanks for your review of Alpha Omega products - I've been wondering about them.

For teaching reading, we have had wonderful success with Alpha Phonics, so much so that after teaching three little ones to read with it we see no reason to go elsewhere, especially with its very reasonable price. Our kids are now voracious and excited readers!
