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 The paper tears when you erase it, many pictures are outdated and are not commonly used words anymore (I had to explain many of them to my student), and I was just not impressed.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 smart
I have a child who struggles with phonics and these exercises have greatly increased her confidence.

We have used the other Explode the Code books and they are very helpful. Some pictures are hard to decipher, but if you can overlook that, this is a great homeschool resource.

This has been a great series for phonics reinforcement. This is our fourth child to use it. They enjoy the short daily pages which teach, reinforce, and review.

We've done the other Codes with good success--continuing the series.

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!

I like that ETC offers fairly independent practice for my 3rd grade son.
Malinda G on Oct 14, 2017
So easy to use. Great for boys! A constant year after year. Affordable!
User on Oct 9, 2017
We have used ETC for 15 years and love it. The lessons are laid out typically the same so the child feels they know "how" to do the lessons, even though the words change. The illustrated activities work well with my learners who need to see context, and I am seeing improvements in their reading after each unit is finished. We will use this for all of our children.
Denise H on Sep 10, 2017
These workbooks reinforce phonics with my students.

We appreciate the simple way these books teach and reinforce critical reading skills.
Marina E on Aug 27, 2017
These are simple exercises which don't frustrate the student, especially those with learning difficulties.
Kim G on Aug 27, 2017
its the next one in the series and Im just going to keep using these books as reinforcement for reading. She loves them when she accomplishes them. But it really adds the extra tools needed that in my opinion the curriculums just dont do it justice...especially if you want a good reader.
Sharon R on Apr 6, 2017
We love this series for teaching phonics and fluent reading.
Stacy D on Mar 27, 2017
Explode the Code is great. I've used it for all of our 7 children. Covers various learning styles and helps reinforce phonics rules.
Rebekah D on Feb 18, 2017
"Explode the code has been THE single most effective way for my children to conceptualize, emphasize and practice-for-mastery their spelling words."

All the Explode the Code books have been an integral part of my children learning to read.

Next one in our curriculum.
Beth T on Dec 4, 2016
My 2nd grader just started the Level 4 book and said it has been his favorite of all of them so far (he's been doing EtC since Levels A, B, C). I thought I'd keep going with them and see how they are.
Gwen P on Aug 20, 2016
I believe my kids are excellent spellers and readers due to the Explode the Code/Wordly Wise series. I have successfully used Explode the Code with my older two (now in Wordly Wise), and this purchase is for my youngest (age 8). The instructions are simple enough for him to read and understand, and each exercise is just long enough for his attention span.

Has anyone use the old version and the new version? 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.
my sister gave me an ETC 6.5 that she did not end up using. can I use that instead of book 6?
User on Nov 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I checked the tables of contents, and it looks like they cover the same sounds in each book. 6.5 does not have the three review lessons, but otherwise they seem to be similar (but different words and activities, so you can use both books without redundancy). So, unless your student needs to do both for review, I think you could just use 6.5. If you need review later, you can just do book 6 next.
