Horizons phonics and reading
 
We've started Horizon's Kindergarten with DD1 (4 yo) and it was just what we needed to get her reading. After just 4 lessons, she now understands sounding out words. I couldn't be happier, and neither could she!

I was initially hesitant to buy it because it is supposed to be "Christian" and we are anything but. I've skimmed kindergarten, and aside from the picture of a "bible" for the letter B, I haven't seen anything that feels religious to me. I would like to follow just one curriculum for phonics/reading from start to finish to minimize missing anything.

Am I missing something? Will things change in the higher grades? I am wanting to steer clear of direct study of bible versus, etc. I don't mind biblical stories as long as they aren't the majority of the materials. Is there a point when the curriculum goes that way?

Bumping since I'm interested in the answer!

There are bible verses in the higher grade. We found it to be too tedious so we switched to explode the code . We could not be happier .
