A Language, Learning and Literacy (L3) program takes place at our school.
What is Language Learning and Literacy?
Language, Learning and Literacy (L3) is a program for Kindergarten students. All Early Stage One and Stage One teachers in our school have participated in training to utilise this program in their classrooms.
L3 focuses on providing rich literacy experiences to assist all children to become successful Readers and Writers.
It occurs as part of the daily literacy lesson within the K-2 Classrooms.
Your child and L3
During the literacy session your child will be taught in small groups of three to four students.
While each group is being given short, explicit lessons in Reading and Writing, the rest of the class will complete carefully selected activities to extend their literacy learning.
Your child will also listen to the reading of stories, poems and songs in small groups. This will build their knowledge of sentences, letters and words to help their reading and writing.
What is being taught?
Children will be taught all parts of the English K–6 Syllabus through L3 lessons.
All children will take home reading books that they have read during their literacy lessons at school. Books are selected so you can provide praise, and encourage all the efforts your child makes when reading and writing.
