Homeschool Specialists' Spotlights
If you're looking for a parent- and kid-friendly phonics workbook, you've found it in this series. New phonics skills are introduced in each workbook. The Get Ready books teach students how to say and write consonants. The short stories in the Beyond books develop understanding and critical-thinking skills. The "1/2" books provide further practice activities. Teacher's guides feature detailed lesson plans and address key principles. My daughter enjoyed the pictures drawn by kids, and she loved using these workbooks to reinforce her newly acquired reading skills. Grades K to 4. Approx. 100 pages each, softcovers from Educators Publishing. -- Cindy
Kelestes4 Stars Out Of 5More simplistic than expectedSeptember 6, 2013KelestesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This is a good product for building very basic phonics skills. I was expecting something a little more involved, but the repetitive nature of Explode the Code is good to solidify any skills that were lagging.
Jennifer SelnerPAAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic Series!October 29, 2012Jennifer SelnerPAAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I highly recommend the Explode the Code series for teaching phonics. There's LOTS of repetition and it goes slowly enough for students who struggle with learning reading. We're only on book 2 but I'll be using the entire series to continue teaching my son reading with our homeschooling.
pianomomAurora, ILAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fun way to learn!September 14, 2012pianomomAurora, ILAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am very happy with this workbook. This is one of my first grade daughter's favorite things to do in school. Each page has a fun phonics activity with cute little drawings. My daughter views each page as a game and really enjoys it. I wouldn't use this as a stand alone phonics program as it is pretty simple and not too indepth about teaching concepts but it is nice to fill in with.
Becky Freund5 Stars Out Of 5Great book!August 21, 2012Becky FreundQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Explode the Code books are great to help kids with reading. My daughter was able to read after finishing Explode the Code 1. I'm going to continue with Explode the Code to help her with her reading.
MomOf3inArkansasArkansasAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great beginning language arts curriculum!!August 16, 2012MomOf3inArkansasArkansasAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love what Explode the Code has done for my daughter! It is such a wonderful way to introduce spelling, phonics, & reading. The way students are guided through this process is wonderful & she was able to do the majority of the work independently. I was amazed at how quickly it moved my daughter from reading simple words to recognizing & spelling compound words & beyond. She went through books 1-8 in about 2 1/2 years & they gave her a great foundation. She also used the Beyond the Code books, but, although they were good practice, I felt they needed to be more challenging at that point. Within the year after she completed the Explode the Code series she was able to read, at 8 years old, books of 300 plus pages at a grade level 4 years or more ahead of her actual grade. I would highly reccommend these books!
