Training Wrap Up

Thanks for joining us for our School Staff User Training. We hope you found the sessions informative and are ready to leap in and start administering the Read3 learning system with your students.

Your ⭐ feedback ⭐ is invaluable so please spare a few minutes to complete the training evaluation (link above) for us. Training online has its challenges so the more we can glean from you guys on how to streamline delivery of information (and ensure we don't bamboozle everyone) the better. From the quick poll this morning it looks like there is interest in online modules so we will look to embark on that new learning adventure in the coming months. 

🏆 Certificate of Completion: For those of you who attended live, your certificate will be issued in the coming weeks. For those of you who have been unable to attend live, we will touch base to determine whether the session replays have been completed prior to the issuing of certificates. 

📺 Training page access: To ensure you have plenty of time to re-watch content, this page will remain open for another month. Once access to training materials has expired (20 June 2023), this link will no longer be accessible from the 'My Learning' menu. 

🤓 Join our Professional Facebook Group: We encourage you to join this page and ask your questions here. That way 'the Read3 collective' can benefit from the topic of discussion. Remember, no question is too small - we learn a lot about how we can improve program design/training and communication from the types of questions asked, so ask away!    

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, please understand you are not alone on this journey. Learning how to best support our most vulnerable young readers takes time and lots of experimentation! If you need assistance, please talk with your Program Coordinator who will, in turn, reach out to us if more help is needed.

From the whole team at Read3, we thank you again 🙏🏼 and welcome to our community! 👋🏼


Session 3 Follow Up

Thanks to everyone for joining us for our last session of training. We do hope you found this session helpful.

If you need clarification on anything covered in this session, please reach out.

If Player A puts down a '3', the next player (Player B) presents three cards for the previous player (Player A) to quickly say the sound of each. If one of the cards presented by Player B is a '3', then the person after the next person (Player C) presents three cards for Player B to say. And so on.

The order of play is particularly important when playing the Extension version (writing) as the next player (Player B) must say the 3 sounds for Player A to write. 📝
