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 word family and vocabulary activities; these are followed by charmingly illustrated stories, and conclude with 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 4 aligns with Explode the Code Book 4 and addresses the following skills through six stories (Nelson Went Overboard for Dogs, What a Scare!, A Different Kind of Library, A Birthday to Remember, The Treasure Hunt, and A Wild Ride):
- Spelling patterns
- Sight words
- Vocabulary development
- Following directions
- Critical thinking
- Story recall
- Inferential thinking
- Rhyming words
- Multi-syllabic words

Star Learning5 Stars Out Of 5Beyond the Code, Book 4 is ExcellentMarch 8, 2016Star LearningQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Beyond the code series is a wonderful extension of the Explode the Code series, which is designed for those students with Specific Language Learning challenges. So, just note that the books are numbered for sequence in concept development not grade level My students enjoy the stories and the pre reading exercises are just what is needed to prep for reading.
HomeschoolMomof4Canyon Lake, TXAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This is NOT for 4th grade!January 26, 2012HomeschoolMomof4Canyon Lake, TXAge: 25-34Gender: femaleThis is perfect when done in sequence in the series for the purpose of phonics mastery. That's IT! I've seen all the books, and how it works is this: ABC is for pre-school or Kindergarten. E1-2 is 1st grade lvl. E3-4 is 2nd grade reading lvl. So if you have 3 and 4, what you have is 2nd grade, the grade when phonics/reading and comprehension must be mastered before entering the 3rd grade. It never said it was for 4th grade, it's just a number for their books. E5-6 is 3rd grade lvl, and E7-8 is 4th grade lvl. They don't have beyond the code for those books, because reading comprehension should be good by then, those books focus on the larger words kids encounter in 3rd and 4th grades.
Jamie3 Stars Out Of 5June 26, 2010JamieThis is a good series for basic skills but far too simplistic to be considered 4th grade. I would say books 1 and 2 would be 1st grade (or an advanced K'er) and books 3 and 4 seem about right for 2nd grade (or an advanced 1st grader). My son liked the stories and the simple method for answering the comprehension questions but, really, MUCH more should be expected out of a 3rd/4th grade level book.
Lisa Perdue4 Stars Out Of 5November 10, 2009Lisa PerdueI really like this book and most importantly my son likes it. Stories ask for you answer the questions by smiley faces, but I make my son answer them in complete sentences. The lessons in between the stories are not hard, but he does know what all the words mean so he is getting little bit of vocabulary.
