Language, learning and literacy

Language, learning and literacy (L3) is a research-based Kindergarten classroom intervention, targeting text reading and writing.

It has been designed to complement the daily literacy program for Kindergarten students.

Students receive explicit instruction in reading and writing strategies in small groups of three. Students then rotate to independent individual or group tasks. This occurs daily in the literacy session.
