Language, Learning and Literacy

Language, Learning and Literacy (L3) is a research-based intervention program for kindergarten students, targeting reading and writing. It complements the daily literacy program for Kindergarten students who do not bring a rich literacy background to their first year of school.

Students receive explicit instruction in reading and writing strategies in small groups in a daily literacy lesson. Students then rotate to independent or group tasks.

Teachers of L3 complete professional learning throughout a school year including workshops, demonstration lessons, supervised practice and on-the-job support.
