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.

It looks like a good, inexpensive option to review what my daughter learned in kindergarten. If we like it we will continue with it into the next level.

I've heard it would be a disservice to your child NOT to get the Teachers Guide to go along with ETC. Have heard great things

Highly recommended by Education Specialist
Paula W. on Aug 23, 2017
I felt the workbooks would be incomplete without the guide. It will give me valuable info that I might not otherwise know
Rose W on Mar 29, 2017
After looking through the material hands on at a local store, I knew it was the right choice to help teach my daughter to read with.
Chelsea C on Mar 3, 2017
I ordered this because my old teacher book is packed in a box somewhere!
Kathy B on Jan 19, 2017
An inexpensive phonics program!

I didn't realize there was a teacher's edition - I can't wait to include actual lessons with our phonics practice.

Good reviews. Hear lots about ETC

My daughter loves it.
Leslie P on May 18, 2016
I have been doing Explode the Code books without the teacher's guide, as it seems pretty self-explanatory. However, I recently spoke to a friend that said the teacher's guides are worthwhile. So I decided to give it a try.
Emily M on Mar 2, 2016
I really liked the systematic approach to explode the code and the goofy illustrations work well to make that connection to soundsfor literacy with pre-readers. And ultimately my child asked to do this book. And at 5 is very confident sounding out words.

I have used it with other kids successfully.

Pleasantly surprised at how much there is, especially given the price!
Just starting lesson planning but I’m loving this so far! Lots of options for non-workbook projects.

Great resource
We began explode the code with just the student books. While they were easy enough to complete, adding in the teacher book makes for a much more full experience. There are scripted lessons that add some fun to the workbook experience. Yes, it takes some time, but we found the program far more enjoyable when we added in the elements from the teacher's book.
