Every Child Deserves an Equal opportunity.

FLN refers to a child’s ability to read simple sentences with meaning and solve basic math problems by the end of Class 3. These are critical gateway skills that help children learn meaningfully in higher classes and help them acquire 21st Century skills like critical thinking and problem solving which are imperative to succeed in the long run.

What is Foundational Literacy and
Numeracy (FLN)
?

Foundational Literacy

Students being able to read with comprehension:

  1. Letter Recognition
  2. Phonemic Awareness
  3. Word Recognition
  4. Reading Comprehension
  5. Listening Comprehension
  6. Writing Skills

Foundational Numeracy

Students being able to have “number sense”

  1. Number Recognition
  2. Counting Skills
  3. Basic Arithmetic
  4. Measurement and Data
  5. Number Sense
  6. Pattern Recognition

Why Does FLN Matter?

  1. Academic Success: FLN skills are essential for understanding complex subjects and achieving academic success.

  2. Cognitive Development: Enhances memory, attention, problem-solving, and critical thinking abilities.

  3. Educational Equity: Promotes equal opportunities for all students.

  4. Long-term Benefits: Leads to better educational outcomes and future success.

Children can’t read a simple class 2-level text in class 3

Children can’t do a basic subtraction problem by class 3

Grade 3 is considered to be the inflection point by which children are expected to ‘learn to read’ so that later they can ‘read to learn’

Those who fail to attain these basic literacy and numeracy skills find it difficult to catch up in later years and risk dropping out of school

The future of our children and India’s ambition of maximizing its demographic dividend depend on whether children attain these basic reading and maths skills by grade 3

These skills enable children to learn more meaningfully in higher classes and acquire 21st century skills like problem-solving and critical thinking
