The Beyond the Code series accompanies the first four books of the Explode the Code series (each sold-separately). This workbook will help students develop comprehension and thinking skills by reading stories that follow the same phonetic structure as Explode the Code, providing kids with a familiar, on-level reading experience. Each chapter begins with writing and spelling activities that introduce new sight words and teach phonetic patterns; these are followed by charmingly illustrated stories, and finally a set of questions and exercises that give students the opportunity to add their own drawings while developing their understanding of the story and encouraging their reasoning abilities. Instructions are simple and written directly to the student, allowing for independent work.
Beyond the Code Book 1 aligns with Explode the Code Book 1 and addresses the following skills through three stories (Zack the Dog, Six Kids Jog, and Help! 911):
- Spelling patterns
- Sight words
- Vocabulary development
- Following directions
- Critical thinking
- Story recall
- Inferential thinking
- Rhyming words
- Multisyllabic words
- Matching sentences to pictures

ClazieCaliforniaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleAll "Explode the Code" reading materials are excellent. I do home teaching for ill or injured students for a school district, and find that they make rapid progress with this series. Learning requires some repetition, and this series does that with variety, maintaining student interest. I'm glad to see the comprehension materials being added.

I have seen progress in my 1st grader and it has been so effortless. We have used other programs in the past, but this is by far the easiest to use that produces results. And my son likes to read the stories about Zack the Dog.
