Explode the Code ½ Workbooks Series—For the Student Who Needs Extra Practice
For example, if your student completed level 1, but struggled with it or needs more practice in the same level, then use EC Book 1 ½ before proceeding to Level 2. [Read more…]
- If your student is doing well with each level, you won’t need the ½ books.
- Each ½ workbook covers the same sounds as the workbook in that level. [Workbook 1 and Workbook 1½ cover the same sounds, for example.]
- The ½ workbooks provide extra phonics and reading practice for students who need review and reinforcement before moving to the next level.
- Keep in mind that your student may not need every ½ book in the six levels.
- Use them as needed to make sure your student masters and understands the sounds and skills covered in each level before proceeding to the next one.
- If only a couple of sounds are a problem, perhaps you can review with library books that focus on the problem sound.
