Skeeterbug finished another Explode the Code book. It was April that he finished his last one. He does two pages a day most days that we do school. He could do them faster, but two pages a day seems to be working for us. These books are good phonics reinforcement. I’d almost consider them busywork, but he doesn’t mind doing them and I like the extra phonics and spelling practice that he gets since we don’t do formal reading lessons anymore. Some of the questions and illustrations make us laugh. In this book my favourite was their illustration for vanished:
On to Book 6! There are eight in the series, he should finish this one before the school year is done.
