Module 2 | PROFESSIONAL | Single-User Licence is a perfect choice for speech pathologists, learning support specialists and private tutors. In Complete Module 2, children start to gain a deeper understanding of the structure of English as they learn to hear the difference between vowel sounds in different syllable types and apply this knowledge to spelling patterns. They will explore two more of the six syllable types of English ('silent e' and 'open' syllables), start to read simple 2-syllable words and add word ending such as s, es, ed, er, ing.
Unlike other foundational programs, Module 2 does not include consonant blends. The focus is on teaching the structure of the language - syllable types and word endings (morphology) - with a focus on vowel patterns rather than additional consonants. This approach helps accelerate the child's ability to decode a wider range of words and the ongoing use of chunking supports children with phonological, working memory and rapid naming difficulties.
Read3 integrates systematic synthetic phonics instruction with targeted phonemic awareness and fluency training to build a strong reading foundation for children with multiple processing difficulties. We use fun, multi-sensory activities and games to keep children motivated and engaged.
For reading outcomes, a minimum of 5 sessions per week (20 minutes per session) is recommended. Children should then apply this learning for an additional 10 minutes a day using decodable readers. Extra practice with computer games and online resources is also provided for each step in the Curated Resources lists. Progress should be monitored daily to determine when the child is ready to move to the next step.
Estimated time to complete Module 2: 4-6 months
(remembering mastery is the aim and every child is different)

Content overview for Complete Module 2
There are 3 Steps in Module 2. These are:
- Step 1 : silent e' syllable (cape, dine, rode) - an easy syllable type that introduces children to long vowel names as a sound concept. It is also easy to learn, with just one spelling pattern.
- Step 2 : open syllable (he, she) and 2-syllable words (beside, pilot) - another easy syllable type that continues the long vowel name concept and is a frequent pattern in longer words. All 3 syllable types are practiced in 2 syllable words.
- Step 3 : word endings (s, es, ed, er, ing) - common word endings are introduced and applied to the 3 syllable types learned so far.
The program steps are sequential and skills development builds throughout the module. As a general guide, within each step your child will:
- practise unique reading and spelling strategies designed to support children with multiple processing difficulties
- fine-tune listening skills by identifying, deleting and/or substituting sounds in words
- strengthen letter-sound knowledge of new patterns
- start reading words with new syllable types
- start writing short sentences containing three syllable types
- build automatic recall of sound segments that occur naturally in our language and link them to spelling patterns for efficient reading and spelling recall
- build a bank of high-frequency words linked to lesson content
Read3's integrated approach means children will be strengthening sound awareness, spelling patterns, reading and spelling accuracy and reading fluency within every practice session. Video lessons explore key concepts to build your understanding so you can assist your child with confidence. Developed by experienced Speech Pathologist Robyn Monaghan, the strategies have proven effective when teaching children with multiple processing difficulties including: poor phonological awareness, poor working memory, poor letter-sound knowledge and poor rapid automatic naming.
