The Role of Gesture in Children's Learning To Count.
Graham, Theresa A.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v74 n4 p333-55 Dec 1999
Examined role of spontaneous gesture in 2- to 4-year-olds' counting and assessment of counting accuracy. Found that correspondence of children's speech and gesture varied systematically across age. Children adhered to one-to-one correspondence principle in gesture prior to speech. Counting accuracy related to correspondence of speech and gesture, gestural adherence to one-to-one principle, and assessment of a puppet's counting accuracy. (Author/KB)
