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.

This curriculum helps reinforce our phonics program.
Denise K on Mar 22, 2021
I never understood why so many moms had their kids do Explode the Code...until we needed something to reinforce phonics. I had thought these books were just busy work. After having used them, I value how they reinforce phonics, reading comprehension, handwriting and ease children into spelling. Now I wish I had used these with my oldest son!
Hannah L on Mar 15, 2021
We have used these books when my kids were in public school and they begin reading quickly. I was so impressed that I decided to continue using them in our homeschool

outstanding product
I just started using this and LOVE it. This year I have so many students that have completely missed phonics in the lower grades. Now in second grade, they are forced to catch up.
This program was referred to me by a retired teacher. The kids love it and it gives them the support they need.

Explode the Code works
Student loves Explodes thenCode and is doing well. I love that student can basically do this without parental involvement but still gets the phonics needed to improve reading and spelling.

It is sobbing mportant to keep the learning process simple and interesting while slowly building skills. These books do just that! Our grandson loves them as he feels successful and not frustrated.

Didn't Add 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.
