|Tracing letters in sugar, from Explode the Code.|
The con of Explode the Code, I think, is the strong emphasis on writing. Henry has pretty good hand control for a kid his age, but I could see where this could be frustrating and discouraging for other children. This is where Hooked on Phonics shines. There is a lot of finger-tracing, coloring letters, and creating projects in the shape of letters.
