Do you have a young learner who is eager to learn to read? Are you looking for a good, easy-to-use, phonics program?  How about a well-researched phonics program?  

Explode the Code offers all of these, and it is a great way to introduce phonics and improve your child's reading skills at any level.

Explode the Code is a phonics based program I consider invaluable in helping my daughter learn to read!

Now she is a senior in college, and reading all those college research articles and long text assignments is not a problem for her.  Having a strong foundation in phonics and reading, early on, was a big part of preparing her for this.

Thanks for the feature!

  1. These look fantastic for beginning readers! I love that they helped you with your daughter! Thank you so much for sharing this at the #SHINEBlogHop!

  2. Thanks, Echo A, from the #SHINEBlogHop, for your nice comments! This really helped my daughter to learn to read, and to continue to improve her reading skills, through their 6th grade books, too!

  3. For phonics I have a 350 page workbook for my daughter "Complete Canadian Reading - Grade 1". She works in it most days. It's colourful and appealing looking, so that my daughter wants to do, which is always important. Thanks for linking this up to the Learning Kid Link-Up. I enjoy learning about new curriculum and homeschooling ideas.

    1. Thanks, Melanie Thomas, for sharing your success with Complete Canadian Reading, Grade 1. And thanks for stopping by!
