The Explode the Code series provides comprehensive phonics instruction, giving students the skills they need to read words, phrases, sentences, and stories by themselves.
Explode the Code Book 5 provides students with an introduction to word endings, word families, digraphs, and 3-letter blends. Skills addressed through a variety of encoding, decoding, and writing exercises include: sounds of -ed, words ending in -ey, word families (all-alk, old-olt-oll, ild-ind), word letter blends (thr-, shr-, scr-, str-, spr-, spl-), and qu words. Students will also practice blending sounds to read and write one-syllable words that include diagraphs and long vowel sounds. Reviews are included throughout, and a posttest is provided.
