In Read3 Module 1 | Step 4 we introduce the first spelling rule - the Doubling Rule - which applies for ff, ll, ss, zz and ck at the end of small words. The range of activities, including our 'Doubling Ditty', have been developed to build automatic recall of sound-letter patterns relating to this rule.

STEP 4 CONTAINS: 12 activities plus an animated video lesson where experienced speech pathologist Robyn Monaghan teaches the 'Doubling Rule' in a unique way. The pace of learning is different for each child, but it is anticipated Step 4 will take at least 5 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 for each step.
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 4
In Step 4 your child will:
- practise unique strategies for reading and spelling
- fine-tune listening skills by identifying syllables in 3-syllable words and substituting first sounds in words (e.g. change 'p' in pill to 'qu')
- start reading one-syllable words containing ll, ff, ss, zz and ck
- start writing short sentences containing words ending in ff, ll, ss, zz and ck
- continue to build a bank of high-frequency words
The video lesson in Step 4 explores The Doubling Rule for ff, ll, ss, zz and ck and reinforces the natural sound patterns where this spelling rule applies.
The Read3 Program works to strengthen the three 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.
