Educators Publishing Service Explode the Code Book, 3 1/2

Explode the Code, for use in the primary and elementary grades, teaches the basic phonics concepts necessary for beginning through intermediate reading. Each of the 12 illustrated workbooks in the program contains a series of lessons of approximately 8 pages in length. These lesssons follow a consistent format designed to reinforce phonetic paterns in a sequential manner. Within each lesson children have extensive practice in matching, reading, copying, spelling, and writing sounds and words. Amusing illustrations, drawn by children, highlight the lesson exercises. The simple directions and consistent format allow students to progress independently. The workbooks provide teachers and students with an instructive and entertaining program to supplement any reading and spelling program. Book 3 1/2 provides further practice on the concepts presented in Book 3. Grade 1

My almost 7 y.o. has done very well w/ this curriculum. We started w/ 2 1/2. She's moving thru the books without too much difficulty. She also has her favorite sections. We also do Beyond the Code in conjunction w/ this series. We also do Spectrum language 2 as well.

Explode the Code 3 1/2 contains practice with long vowel sounds and digraphs (such as sh and th). The pictures are good; even my student who is an English language learner knew what most of them were. I would have liked more practice with -y as a vowel. Overall, it is a good phonics practice book.

There are many curriculums, workbooks etc. that have come and gone, but we have used ETC from the beginning and have continued with it with each child. It is fun and goes along with whatever Phonics program we have done. My dtr. finished book 3, but still needs more practice in the skills, so 3 1/2 is great!

My 6 yr old loves working through his Explode the Code workbook. The instructions are simple and he can work on his own, although I usually sit with him to make sure that he doesn't rush through the pages. He loves to read the questions because they are fun and silly, although they are very thoughtfully constructed, to incorporate the right words for teaching a certain phonics skill. This is our first experience with Explode the Code, and it has been great.

Thank heaven for Explode the Code books. They are fun for children. The students I teach love the pictures and the funny sentences. They are teacher friendly and easy to use. Imagine that! A phonics program that is fun to read and work with.

This is a great product to teach your first grade child or student phonics. I love it. I bought the Kindergarten series last year. He is doing great!
