Bottom Line - It Works Nov 11, 2005
The progressive phonics introduction, the engaging little drawings, the repetitive tasks, the systematic skill progression, among other educational objectives, all boil down to one fact ~ THIS WORKS! I've tried several other methods to assist my special child in spelling and reading. While these workbooks are marketed more as a supplement to a reading program, nothing has been more influential in my daughter actually GETTING IT! She is always eager to pull out her Explode the Code book first. The progess is consistently steady. My friend's child who is not learning challenged feels the same enthusiam. The publisher of this series also produces the wonderful Wordly Wise 3000 workbooks which are equally successful and well-received by my students.
It worked for us! Excellent phonics based program. Oct 28, 2005
Explode the Code is an excellent phonics based program for teaching your child to read. It's fun and EASY. I looked into many different books (Teaching Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, etc) and have found this to be the simplest by far! My 5 year old homeschooled daughter is now starting Book 3. She began with Books A, B, & C when she was 4 years old. This series, combined with reading to her all the time, is the only reading training she has received. She loves reading and is doing an excellent job at it.
Explode the Code 3 Mar 7, 2003
Excellent. I have used the Explode the Code series with four of my children. It is simple to use for parent and child. The amount of work is not burdensome. The humour captivates the imagination and keeps us from being bored. I think it also tickles the funny bone of the brain and help stimulates memory. The cost is extremely reasonable. We have used book 1 for grade 1 very, very slowly. The children have then been able to manage two books per year (6 pages a week). They have begun reading part way through grade 2. To create a love of books, read to them!!!!
