The Effects of Early Literacy Enriched Experiences on Kindergartners' Concept of Print Knowledge.
Gilleland, Kim
This study compared the concept of print knowledge in kindergarten children with and without preschool education. Subjects were 12 kindergarten students: 6 had received preschool education, and 6 had not. Subjects completed a series of tasks on Maria Clay's Concepts of Print test, and parents completed a questionnaire examining the frequency with which subjects participated in literacy-enriched activities. Analysis of the seven completed questionnaires showed that children with no preschool experience were equally aware of print concepts as children who had attended preschool. On the Concepts of Print tasks, students without preschool experience performed just as well as or better than children with preschool experience. Results showed that children who have no preschool experience are exposed to print concepts through literacy-enriched activities at home. (MM)
