This paper focuses on the influence of socio-economic risk factors and different aspects of the home learning environment in early childhood on children's language competencies (vocabulary and grammar skills). The assumption is that children with more risk factors have lower competencies, but the home learning environment (measured by everyday…

Rapp, Diotima J.; Engelmann, Jan M.; Herrmann, Esther; Tomasello, Michael – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Reputational concerns are known to promote cooperation. Individuals regularly act more prosocially when their behavior is observable by others. Here, we investigate 4- and 5-year-old (N = 144) children's reputational strategies in a competitive group setting. The aim of the current study was to explore whether children's sharing behavior is…

Barenthien, Julia; Oppermann, Elisa; Steffensky, Mirjam; Anders, Yvonne – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, 2019
Science is an important domain in early childhood education. Though, initial results indicate that preschool teachers rarely offer science activities. Against this background professional development aims to encourage preschool teachers to provide science activities more frequently. In Germany, professional development is often offered as…

Grünke, Matthias; Karnes, Jennifer; Hisgen, Susanne – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2019
In this study, we examined the impact of a simple explicit-timing intervention on low-achieving third-grade students' ability to read more rapidly and accurately. We implemented an ABAB design with four struggling readers to establish experimental control and to evaluate the effects of the treatment in terms of the target variable. The results…

Linberg, Anja; Kluczniok, Katharina; Burghardt, Lars; Freund, Jan-David – Early Child Development and Care, 2019
Although observational instruments are considered to be the gold standard for measuring toddler childcare quality, large-scale studies often have to rely on interviews or questionnaires. However, it remains unclear whether such reports can serve as reliable indicators for childcare quality. The present study used the ITERS and FCCERS to examine…

Martzog, Philipp; Stoeger, Heidrun; Suggate, Sebastian – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
An increasing number of findings suggest that cognition is grounded in sensorimotor experiences. Research suggests that fine motor skills (FMS) link to cognitive abilities. Existing studies, however, lack conceptual and methodological differentiation regarding FMS and little is known about the directional nature of links. In study 1, we measured…

Koerber, Susanne; Osterhaus, Christopher – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
Early scientific thinking in kindergarten (6-year-olds) was investigated in a large study involving 227 participants. We investigated (1) whether individual differences across 3 scientific-thinking components (experimentation, data interpretation, and understanding the nature of science) are stable across children, (2) whether children's increased…

Schiefer, Julia; Golle, Jessika; Tibus, Maike; Oschatz, Kerstin – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2019
Scientific reasoning abilities are already developing in elementary-school-aged children and enable them to understand the world around them. The goal of the current study was to develop a new instrument for 8- to 10-year-old children in Grades 3 and 4 to measure their understanding of the steps of the "scientific inquiry cycle" (SIC).…

Hebbecker, Karin; Förster, Natalie; Souvignier, Elmar – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2019
Research on reading achievement and reading motivation has rarely addressed the question if and how they affect each other over time. In our study, we investigate the reciprocal effects between reading achievement and both intrinsic and extrinsic reading motivation during elementary school. We measured reading achievement and intrinsic and…

Spilles, Markus; Hagen, Tobias; Hennemann, Thomas – Insights into Learning Disabilities, 2019
Children with externalized behavioral problems (BP) are at increased risk of being affected by a lack of social skills and academic engagement, and reading difficulties can frequently occur. Peer-tutoring (PT) interventions demonstrably promote both positive behavior and academic outcomes. To foster these effects, using interdependent group-reward…
