Didn't Live Up to the Hype!
I'm not sure what all the hype is about for this program. To be honest, me and my student were quite disappointed. We ended up having to redo all our phonics in another program because my student retained so little! Big disappointment! The paper tears when you erase it, many pictures are outdated and are not commonly used words anymore (I had to explain many of them to my student), and I was just not impressed.

Very educational
Fun easy and educational for my seven year old daughter. I got books 1-8 and she is knocking them out of the ball park

Fantastic product
I have used this series for years with great results. It helps with reading, handwriting, phonics, spelling, and reading comprehension in a simple systematic way. However, the books are in black and white, so it is not so good for dyslexic children who do better with color, but the writing is short so it is good for dysgraphia.

My kids like it.
Corina A on Nov 2, 2018
I have a child that has struggled with reading. Although McRuffy phonics was fantastic for my older one, it was not working for this child. She perceives Explode the Code as easier to follow and has been doing fantastic with it.
Kristy S on Oct 31, 2018
My daughter has enjoyed the first two books so far
Angela Susan H on Sep 27, 2018
We homeschool and my son loves it! It allows him to work on phonics skills on his own.

These workbooks are so easy to use, fun for the kids and inexpensive! AND they work!

We love the Explode the Code program. Walked my kids through decoding the English Language in a fun and easy to understand way, giving them weekly rules to follow. Highly recommended.

Great easy program for all 7 kids! Helps support any language arts curriculum and fill in any gaps where the kids need a little practice! This program has helped the kids learn to read as well!

Sarah G on Mar 16, 2018
These books have been so helpful with reading for my children.
Laura M on Mar 16, 2018
Love these for a basic, no fuss reinforcement of spelling and phonics
Clare K on Mar 13, 2018
Explode the Code is the simplest, easiest, and most effective curriculum I have found to cover phonics. I have taught two to read easily with this curriculum and will be using it with the third. By book five, I could quit because reading is coming more easily, but I like the additional reinforcement to help in breaking down more complex words they will encounter in the future.
Katie N on Mar 11, 2018
I have used with 3 kids and seems to be effective. No frills but works.

Simbo T on Jun 11, 2017
My daughter loves this series. It has improved her reading skills. I have to help her with some of the pictures but other than that she can do most of it independently.
Amy C on Jun 7, 2017
I love ETC because it really helps her reading and gives her extra work for sounding out and blending words and sounds together.

Claire E on Mar 10, 2017
Because we've loved Levels 1-4. My daughter didn't have confidence with reading until she started using the Explode the Code workbooks. They are really fun and really helpful!

How many pages are in one book?
A shopper on Apr 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The pages are numbered to 92 in ETC Book 5, with 11 lessons and eight pages (four fronts and four backs) for each lesson.
Has anyone used the 1st edition & the 2nd edition? Is there a big difference?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Per the publisher: Changes in the 2nd edition Workbooks and Teacher Guides: In Workbooks: 1) revised student directions for clarity and ease of understanding; 2) Updated content to clarify previously confusing or problematic examples; 3) Stories in Books 7 and 8 were revised and replaced with new content. In Teacher Guides: 1. "Lesson Routine at a Glance" chart is featured on the inside front cover of all guides. 2. Chart presents essential literacy skills and the systematic process in which ETC implements them. Artwork Updates: Updated images throughout the program to eliminate obsolete and confusing images as well as reflect the 21st century culture.After reviewing/comparing, there are minimal changes. A few graphics have changed and the upper level books (6 and up) have some expanded instruction. Page numbers align between editions. 2nd ed. address CCSS but does not align lessons to the CC; it also describes the program as O-G (if complete activities in TG)-additional requirements to be OG are the ETC Code Cards and the online activities (fee based);for a comprehensive program, the TG recommends 15-20 min. direct phonics instruction, plus literacy activities reading stories, chapter books, and non fiction selections. Also recommended are writing, grammar, spelling and oral work, but they make no recommendations. The 2nd ed also has some font changes in the student samples (more traditional). There are updated stories in books 7 and 8.
