Get Ready for the Code: Book A is the first book of three preliteracy primers which introduce all consonant letters, and which are designed to be used before the Explode the Code series. Covering early literacy skills and letter formation, students will learn through visual, auditory, and kinesthetic activities that include tracing, matching, tracking, copying, and following directions. Book A teaches students consonants b, f, k, m, r, and t with an emphasis on phonemic awareness and sound-letter correspondence.
Special emphasis is given to discriminating between similar objects and letters, to developing the motor control necessary to write legibly, and to developing the listening skills children need to follow directions carefully.
The Explode the Code Teacher's Guide for Books A, B, and C (sold-separately) includes the teacher's portion of the listening exercises given in this workbook.

Teacher Mom5 Stars Out Of 5Great for PreschoolersApril 15, 2017Teacher MomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I started my daughter in these when she was 3.5. I am very pleased with her progress. We would do one letter a week with this and would play various games throughout the week to reinforce them. She finished them in 3 months and is now beginning to read. I love that these cover several skills in them and they review back over previous weeks. I would recommend them to any parent. I did work through them with her, but I imagine if your child was a little older then they could do them with little supervision. I did purchase the teaching guide and found it helpful for teaching other pre reading skills.
Moses5 Stars Out Of 5Great start.February 25, 2017MosesQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Utilizing these books with my 4 year old, has helped with his recognition of letters and sounds, as well as he is able to distinguish between pictures. He has applied this skilled to other areas such as toys and dinner. He now uses the book as his homework, when he comes home from daycare, which allows him to feel older becasue he is working alongside his older siblings. NOTE the books does not teach the lesson, but assist in the instruction. The teacher/parent/guardian still has to be willing to put in the time upfront to make learning successful in the end. Meaning you will need to work with your chikd for the first two or three letters After that they will be self-sufficienr in understanding the expectation on each page. Then you truly become a facilitator.
