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 starter books for letter and image recognition, and writing practice.
Vanessa M on Mar 23, 2020
My kids love these and they work! (I'm teaching my sixth child with them now.) Plus they're simple and no-stress to use. I find the combination of this and reading games (such as Delightful Reading from Simply Charlotte Mason) to be a wonderful combination to teach kids to read.

I loved Book A of the Code books. It helped teach letters and their sounds in an age-appropriate manner with a variety of exercises. Some of the exercises my 4 year old really liked doing. It's a very affordable price.

looks fun and easy
Andrea D on Sep 19, 2018
I have used this with five of my children. It is a great way to introduce letter recognition and build confidence in beginning reading. My 6th child is exciting about getting started with his first book
Judy W on Sep 9, 2018
I used Explode the Code with my older two and they loved them. My youngest is learning to read and along with his letter practice we are using Before the Code A and he is enjoying it. You can have your child do as many or little pages that they want to do. Its very easy to follow and teaches the sounds and how to write the letters in a simple format. Also, it gives them a chance to learn to follow directions. So we are moving on the B.

Homeschooling my 5 and 7 year old girls. Looking for a good resource to help teach them the foundations for reading. Explode the Code series was recommended with the homeschooling curriculum.
Theresa F on Mar 23, 2018
We currently use Hooked on Phonics which we love but it just doesn't have the writing and decoding like Explode the code so we are going to use this in conjunction with Hooked on Phonics.
Heather S on Mar 14, 2018
This is an excellent resource! I am a reading therapist and have used Explode the Code for almost a decade. It is sequential approach to reading, using blending, segmenting, and decodable print that allows greater possibility of success for struggling readers. It is also very user friendly for parents. I highly recommend this product!
Cindy L on Feb 3, 2018
Recommended by friends, good reviews, inexpensive
Kate C on Dec 20, 2017

My preschooler loves this book. You will need to purchase Get Set for The Code A and C. As it continues from A through C, covering all the letters of the alphabet. Great book for introducing letters, letter sounds and handwriting. As a former teacher and now homeschool mother of 4, I like the variety of activities for each letter and the review if past letters. Highly recommend.
