LWR + Task-Based Activities  -   LWR Book 1

The first of four task-based activities booklets is hot off the press!   

The activities in LWR+ Task-Based Activities are aligned with the competencies, task groups and levels in the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF). An introduction with a chart mapped to the OALCF is included in the resource.  The task-based activities can also be used as stand-alone activities for learners completing level 1 tasks who are not using Laubach Way to Reading skill books. This publication is available as a free downloadable word document under LLO Publications on the Bookstore section of our website - 

Our organizational members will be receiving one hard copy version of the booklet free of charge. Additional copies can be purchased for the cost of materials and shipping ($20.00).
