Category Description for Beyond the Code:

Finally, the missing link! Reading comprehension and reasoning skills designed to accompany the Explode the Code series. Following and using the same presentation of phonetic structures as Explode the Code, Beyond the Code contains introductory (reading warm-up) exercises, reading selections, and follow-up activities that test understanding and critical thinking. This series is typical of the high quality of EPS products. The stories and exercises look very interesting to young readers. One feature I appreciate is the continuation of a story in several parts which I think would hold the attention of a child better than unrelated shorter stories. Although the publisher states that these two volumes are meant to be used with the first four books of the Explode series, my sample copy of Beyond the Code Book 1 begins with the long vowel constructs introduced in Explode the Code Book 3.

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.

My son finished Beyond the Code 2 and felt that it was challenging. We are going to work on the next level with him.

My youngest attends public school and is needing some extra help over the summer. We are going to start homeschooling him during the summer and will continue when he starts back in public school.

One of my kids could do with some lighter reading and answering questions formula curriculum especially for days when I cannot dedicate as much time as I would like to instruct her on her heavier and more hands on reading and writing curriculum.

My kids did well and liked Explode the Code so I'm supplementing with these now.
Alexis F on Jan 13, 2017
It took me a long time to figure out the leveling of these, so thought I'd share. Each beyond the code book comes after two explode the code books. So Beyond the code 1 is intended for after completing explode the code 2, Beyond the code 2 is intended for after completing explode the code 4, etc.

My special needs daughter is older but at a 2nd grade reading level. She really enjoyed doing Beyond the Code Book 2. They are fun stories that I think are worth reading, and it was fun to finish the picture and answer the comprehension questions.
Debra C on Nov 11, 2016
I liked the first two. It makes my child think about what he is reading rather than just reading the words.

Does Beyond the Code have a teacher's guide?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I never found one. It doesn't have an answer key in the back either. After my daughter read the story herself and finished the lesson worksheets, I read the story out loud for her to hear (this doesn't take too long) and then we went over the answers together. Most of the worksheets are easy to go over without an answer key.
