The Get Ready, Get Set, and Go for The Code, A, B, and C student workbooks provides pre-literacy instruction and reinforcing exercises with a focus on visual identification of consonants, their written lowercase letter forms and their sound-symbol relationships. Each lesson addresses the principles of effective reading instruction and follows the same easy-to-use format. The Teachers Guide is required for providing listening exercises.

The Teachers Guide for Workbooks A, B and C expands on the skills presented in these books, providing teachers with various options for instruction and reinforcement. The wide variety of activities may be adapted for whole-class, small-group, and one-on-one learning situations.

The 60 Picture-Letter Cards can be used for supplementary visual and auditory work and match key words in the student workbooks. Letter cards allow students to practice letter identification and recognition. Picture-letter combination cards help students map sounds to symbols. Use with Get Ready, Get Set, and Go for The Code, A, B, and C workbooks.

The Workbooks, Explode The Code Books 1-8 focus on Phonemic Awareness, Phonological Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency, Comprehension, and Writing. All workbooks have several review lessons and a posttest. Explode The Code Half Books (1 -6 ) focus on more practice and reinforcement with skills in workbooks 1-6.

Code Cards (1 card for every concept introduced in Books 1-3.) include suggestions for daily practice activities and games. Each card is marked with the book and page number on the concept, which it is introduced.

Teachers Guides (Books 1-8) incorporate a quick review, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension in every lesson. Suggestions for writing practice and differentiated instruction are provided for each lesson. Specific answers to the student pages are not offered, as the book assumes student and teacher will be completing these together. However, answers for pre-test and post-test questions are included. Please also note these books only cover the "whole" levels, not the 1/2 levels.

Explode The Code Placement Tests are designed to assess students encoding and decoding skills. All tests can be given in either a group setting or individually, with the exception of Test 4, which must be administered individually. Included are directions for administering and analyzing results; answer keys and reproducible test forms.




Category Description for Explode the Code:

A phonics program, utilizing workbooks, covering letter sounds and most phonograms. Ample practice using a variety of exercises helps children to both learn and reinforce reading skills. These are particularly well-conceived, with alternate (incorrect) choices containing most probable letter or word confusions. This will assure well-honed phonetic reading skills. There is plenty of practice here, so if you use these in conjunction with another phonics program (for reinforcement), you will want to pick and choose exercises or pages to complete. The "1/2" level books provide practice for the skills learned in the whole-level books Please note that Get Ready for the Code, Get Set for the Code, and Go for the Code no longer include teacher's guide inserts. A much-enhanced teacher's guide is now available separately, that contains teaching information and answers for these three books. Teacher's guides are available for upper levels as well, with each teacher's guide covering two levels.

The new second edition features some small changes from the original, including revised student instructions, some updated content and artwork, and revised stories in Book 7 and 8. There is also a new chart on the inside front cover of the teacher guides which shows the overall lesson routine.

Great system, easy to use, and the kid loves to do the pages- feels very accomplished. Great extra practice for the ones that need that...
Amy B on Mar 26, 2020
K teacher here, I use these with my students and need extra copies to send out to my students so they can keep practicing and learning during this shutdown. Best designed phonics workbooks I have found. Normally, I use them in class with my higher readers. Note: My school is 100% housing project kids, so I need to provide this sort of thing out of my own pocket and Rainbow Resources has by far the best prices on these books.

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!

Inexpensive, easy to use, engaging and humorous drawings
This phonics series was a referral from an aunt who homeschooled a large family. My purpose for the workbooks was for pupil review of phonics concepts than for testing purposes, so did not purchase the teacher books initially. The child-drawn black and white pictures and simplicity of layout are engaging and refreshing... not overbearing; so my youngsters did as many pages as they desired on a daily basis. Helpful hint: One could skip through some of these according to specific phonetic content needing concentration. Inside the front cover of Book 3 is CONTENTS page containing thirteen Lessons which focus on silent -e words, consonant blends, consonant digraphs (sh, th, wh, ch, -tech, -ng, -ck), vowel digraphs (ee, ea, ai, ay, oa, ow), 2 Review pages, and 4 Posttest pages. Inside the back cover is a table labeled Explode the Code Book 3 and lists 9 Sight Words and 22 Direction Words along with a list of ALL books in is series from Educators Publishing Service. This book has 110 pages.
I did not give five stars due to not using the Beyond the Code materials for comprehension and reasoning skills which accompany Books 1-4.
Note: My youngest pupil does not prefer to write words on the 3/4-inch line scale which is normally used for primary grades.

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.
