Language and Reading
Research Consortium (LARRC)
LARRC conducted a five-year study designed to substantially increase our understanding of language- and reading-comprehension development for children ages 4-8 years old (pre-kindergarten to grade 3). In total, 1,200 children in four states were followed longitudinally over five years.
As part of the study, the LARRC team developed a 25-week curriculum supplement for children in grades pre-kindergarten to third grade designed to improve children’s language skills as a means to improving their reading comprehension: Let’s Know! (Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 3, English language) and Vamos a Aprender! (Pre-Kindergarten only, Bilingual Spanish-English). These supplements are available to download for free.
