A Study on Preschool Children's Name Writing and Writing Readiness Skills
Çetin, Özlem Simsek
Educational Research and Reviews, v10 n5 p512-522 Mar 2015
The purpose of this work is to analyze the name writing and writing readiness levels of preschoolers in terms of various variables and to identify the relationship between children's name writing skill and writing readiness levels. To that end, name-writing and writing-readiness skills of 204 preschoolers at the ages of 3, 4 and 5 were examined using observation forms. Results revealed that children's name writing skills were similar in terms of school type and gender yet they differed based on their age. Writing readiness scores showed no significant difference in relation to children's gender but significant differences were observed in school type and age. Writing readiness levels were higher among children who were able to write their full names and lower among those who just scribbled randomly.
