Fountas & Pinnell’s Leveled Literacy Intervention Purple System, Grade 5, Levels R-W. The Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention System (LLI) is a small-group, supplementary intervention designed for children who find reading and writing difficult. LLI serves those students who need intensive support to achieve grade-level competency. These children are the lowest achieving children in the classroom who are not receiving another supplementary intervention. Each lesson in the LLI system also provides specific suggestions for supporting English language learners who are selected for the system.
The LLI Purple System has been designed for grade 5 students who are reading below grade level. The Purple System may also be used to help children at higher grade levels who are reading below level R. This system may also be effectively used with special education children for whom the activities meet the educational program specifications.
The LLI Purple System features include: 45 minute lessons, 5 days a week for optimal results and intensity, for small groups of 4 students, 24 lessons at each reading level, R through W, 144 original, high-interest titles (60% non-fiction, 40% fiction), novel study lessons, optional test-preparation lessons, 18 to 24+ weeks of explicit, intensive instruction depending on the student’s reading level at entry to the intervention.
