The purpose of this document is to provide readers with the coding protocol that authors used to code 51 studies that met inclusion criteria for a systematic review. This systematic review focused on how literacy is incorporated into informal math intervention studies for children in preschool to third grade. We investigated what types of literacy activities were integrated, how literacy was a part of data sources collected, and in what ways literacy was mentioned explicitly by authors in research reports. We coded studies in this systematic review to answer the following research questions: (1) How is literacy incorporated? (2) What literacy activities are integrated? (3) How is literacy a part of data sources collected? And (4) In what ways do researchers explicitly mention literacy in their research reports? The most common literacy activity was speaking and listening, and the most frequently included data source related to literacy was standardized literacy achievement measures. Finally, we found that overall, researchers did not detail literacy throughout their research reports.
