Any thing and every thing to do with reading and writing starting with the basics in Kindergarten. I'm on a public school curriculum and they cover basic reading/sight word recognition, letter recognition and writing and knowing parts of a story like plot, setting,characters, beginning, middle, end and they use stories like The Little Red Hen and such so nothing super complicated for Kinder.
I know my dd's school lists literature separately from language arts, but that could be because it's a special needs school. Even at home, though, I generally separated them.
LA for us:
Reading comprehension or phonics if necessary
