Kindergarten Letter Knowledge, Phonological Skills, and Memory Processes: Relative Effects on Early Literacy.
Naslund, Jan Carol; Schneider, Wolfgang
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v62 n1 p30-59 Jun 1996
Compared predictive value of kindergarten phonological awareness tasks and letter knowledge on 134 German first and second graders' literacy performance. Found that phonological awareness tasks varied in prediction of later literacy but were better predictors than letter knowledge. Kindergarten letter knowledge also reliably predicted later literacy skills. Phonological processing skills in verbal memory emerged between ages four and eight. (KDFB)
