KryssyKentuckyAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Very NiceMarch 20, 2012KryssyKentuckyAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I purchased Explode the Code 4 for my 8 year old daughter. She's very unsure with her reading, and wants to improve her speed and fluency.
I was a little worried that I was buying something aimed at a slightly younger child, but I shouldn't have worried! The easy to understand lessons, that cover in this book compound words, common endings (-ing, -ed, etc), and multi-syllable words, work well for her. This book breaks down the reading rules for longer words and has done great things for my daughter's reading fluency and confidence even though she's just a little under half way through it.
One thing I love (especially because I homeschool six children) is the fact that she doesn't really want or need any help to work her way through it and the lessons seem to stick really well without my supervision! I don't know that this would be the case for all parents or children but I think it really gives her a sense of pride and accomplishment that she doesn't have to ask me to read her instructions or help her sound out words in this book- the instructions are easy to understand and the rules are laid out with common sense.
Overall, I'd definitely recommend that if you have a struggling reader, you need to purchase these books! Don't feel like you have to start at the beginning... just read the overviews and see what your children need to work on.
