  Get Ready for the Code Book A
Albanyaloe of South Affrica, 10/15/2011
Explode the Code is a popular Phonics series amongst homeschoolers, though not one of our families favorites. The book is an interesting mix of practise of letter writing, motor skills, and phonics skills. Letter formation, is introduced slowly, firstly with one or two very large letters and then a row of about 2 inch size letters. Initially we received this series without the Teacher guide, and I found it incomplete without the teacher guide. It was not obvious what to do with certain pages without the teacher guide. The Teacher guide also had extension activities and fun things to do with the child for each letter sound. The picture style of the book is zany, modern style black line drawings which seem to appeal to children.
