The Effect of Pictures on the Acquisition of a Small Vocabulary of Similar Sight-Words.
Saunders, Robyn J.; Solman, Robert T.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v54 pt3 p265-75 Nov 1984
Two experiments investigated effects of pictures on kindergarten children learning to read nouns. Results indicate instructions to associate word and picture and viewing of the word prior to presentation of the picture failed to improve performance. Children who learned words in absence of pictures recognized more words on post-learning trials. (Author/MBR)
