Proven program that has helped millions of students build the essential literacy skills needed for reading success: phonological awareness, decoding, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, and spelling.
Explode the Code is a researched-based, multisensory, Orton-Gillingham based program that builds essential literacy skills through direct, systematic, phonics instruction. Providing a comprehensive overview of phonological awareness, decoding, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, and spelling, students will gain the skills they need to read words, phrases, sentences, and stories on their own.
Explode the Code Book 1 introduces short vowel sounds and is ideal for students in grades 1-3. Skills addressed through a variety of encoding, decoding, and writing exercises include: short a, short a with final consonant sounds, short i, short u, short e, and short o. Students will also practice blending sounds to read and write CVC words. Reviews are included throughout, and both a pretest (which measures student familiarity with consonant sounds, a prerequisite to this book) and a posttest are provided.
