I use level 3 for Phonics for my 5 year old and Spelling for my 7 year old who struggles with writing. I think it is a very nice spine but needs a few games added to spice it up to appeal as a good reading program. The price is well worth it though. They are learning but it is a smidge boring. I hated Explode the Code Online though.

Definitely does the job
We just started book 3 after finishing 1 and 2, and it's definitely making things easier. It's low fuss, low prep and has greatly reduced whining about school. The new edition is definitely easier to read than the 1st edition.

taught us all to read better
This series continues to pull my kids along, reading well and fluently. I traditionally modify the writing requirements, but my five-year-old has taken a fair chunk on himself anyway in this third book. He and I continue to love the silly pictures and sentences as well as the pacing.

Explode the Code Books 1 1/2 and 2 have helped my son with his reading skills and with learning to work on his own. He truly enjoyed working through them. This book (#3) is to give him additional practice with short and long vowel words.

Jennifer K on Jun 1, 2017
I find it an excellent addition to our main curriculum, reinforcing the core of elementary phonics K-2. Phonics, blends, digraphs and a little word writing practice. I love how ETC presents the information in a slightly different way on each page so the lessons are not boring or tedious, each day is a little different. It does not have a lot of writing and each book has a 'post test' at the end. I also love how they offer half books if you find your kids need extra practice.

I really like the order that Explode the Code uses to introduce new phonics concepts. It provides plenty of practice for new learners. The price is great, especially on Rainbow Resource! The only drawback is the amount of writing (at least in Kndergarten), so we use letter stamps. A+ product!

BEST ANSWER: I personally think you will not need to supplement S to W&R. It is a very complete program using lots of learning approaches so I really doubt your student(s) will fatigue from the program or need anything to switch to for a bit or supplement with. I would focus 100% on S to W & R and enjoy the progress your students make.
This recommendation comes from a mom who is about to embark on her own SWR journey. But my student is an alum of Logic of English Foundations A-C, which was based off of the learning methods of SWR. My guy had lots o fun learning with this method. We r using SWR to go beyond what LOE provided him.
I would focus entirely on SWR before you decide to complement/supplement with anything. It's a wonderful method of learning and is completely stand alone in its thoroughness. It's amazing. If only I had learned phonograms and such as a student rather than having to learn it as an adult, my spelling especially, would be all the better for it...
Best wishes!
