Examining the Predictive Relations Between Two Aspects of Self-regulation and Growth in Preschool Children’s Early Literacy Skills – Developmental Psychology

ABSTRACT There is strong evidence that self-regulatory processes are linked to early academic skills, both concurrently and longitudinally.

Parent-mediated Interventions to Foster Early Language and Literacy Skills in Young Children: A Systematic Review – The Campbell Collaboration

Extract Interactions with parents at home provide the first opportunity for children to establish the fundamental language and literacy skills needed for later academic success. Indeed, literacy and language-related variables appear to be among the strongest predictors of later school performance, making their early promotion particularly critical. These foundational language and literacy skills are even … [Read More] Parent-mediated Interventions to Foster Early Language and Literacy Skills in Young Children: A Systematic Review – The Campbell Collaboration

A Socioeconomic Comparison of Emergent Literacy and Home Literacy in Australian Preschoolers – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal

ABSTRACT Family socioeconomic status (SES) and home literacy practices impact upon children’s early literacy development. The present study explored where current emergent literacy and home literacy differences lie in Australian preschoolers aged three to five years from lower SES (n?=?49) and higher SES (n?=?52) homes. Children were assessed on letter knowledge, print concepts, and name … [Read More] A Socioeconomic Comparison of Emergent Literacy and Home Literacy in Australian Preschoolers – European Early Childhood Education Research Journal

Into the Looking Glass: Literacy acquisition and mirror invariance in preschool and first-grade children – Child Development

ABSTRACT At what point in reading development does literacy impact object recognition and orientation processing? Is it specific to mirror images? To answer these questions, forty-six 5- to 7-year-old preschoolers and first graders performed two same–different tasks differing in the matching criterion-orientation-based versus shape-based (orientation independent)-on geometric shapes and letters. On orientation-based judgments, first graders … [Read More] Into the Looking Glass: Literacy acquisition and mirror invariance in preschool and first-grade children – Child Development

E-Books in the Early Literacy Environment: Is there added value for vocabulary development? – Journal of Research in Childhood Education

ABSTRACT Using a theory of affordances, this study examines the introduction of e-books into the early literacy environment as resources that can increase children’s opportunity for learning vocabulary. Added value was observed under conditions of (1) book browsing, (2) instruction, and (3) a print-only condition. A total of 33 4-year-olds (18 boys, 15 girls) from … [Read More] E-Books in the Early Literacy Environment: Is there added value for vocabulary development? – Journal of Research in Childhood Education
