In Module 1 | Step 3 of the Read3 program we introduce the remaining letters of the alphabet - j, k, l, r, u, qu, w, x, y z - and work to build automatic recall of sound patterns within short words. We use a range of fun and engaging listening, reading and writing exercises to do this. We will also continue to expand your child's bank of high-frequency words.

STEP 3 CONTAINS: 14 activities plus an animated video lesson where experienced speech pathologist Robyn Monaghan explains how to teach your child effectively. The pace of learning is different for each child, but it is anticipated Step 3 will take at least 3-4 weeks to master.
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, and a curated list of decodable readers, computer games and other resources is provided.
Progress should be monitored daily to determine when your child is ready to move to the next step.
NOTE: All Read3 materials are provided in a digital format. You will not receive any physical products with this purchase.
Content overview for Module 1 | Step 3
In Step 3 your child will:
- practise unique strategies for reading and spelling
- start fine-tuning their listening skills by substituting first sounds in words to create new words (change the 'c' in cat to a 'p')
- establish strong letter-sound links for j, k, l, r, u, qu, w, x, y z using the Easy Alphabet
- start reading words and word endings containing j, k, l, r, u, qu, w, x, y z and letters learned previously in Steps 1 and 2
- continue to build a bank of high-frequency words
- start writing words and short sentences
The video lesson in Step 3 introduces The Sound Train, our unique multi-sensory tool that enables children to 'see' individual sounds (phonemes) within words. A strong understanding of sound placement within words will improve spelling and help reduce the letter sequencing issues that many struggling readers face.
The Read3 Program works to strengthen the 3 foundational skills needed for reading and writing. 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.
