  3. 3. THE INFLUENCE OF BEING READY TO LEARN ON CHILDREN’S EARLY SCHOOL LITERACY AND NUMERACY ACHIEVEMENT • A study was conducted amongst children beginning school to determine what factors affect the readiness of a child • Some students arrive more eager to learn than others • Students begin school with different content knowledge levels
  4. 4. WHO AM I? (WAI?) TEST • Conducted in the first week of Term 1 • Additional data composed in weeks 6-10 Term 1 and weeks 2-6 Term 4 • Students were observed in class and then followed through with an interview • Teachers complete a questionnaire • Parents gave information regarding prior to school experiences
  5. 5. WHO AM I? (WAI?) TEST • An 11 item booklet was completed by the student contain numeracy and literacy activities • Assessed their understanding of geometrical figures, symbols, meaning of names • Test completed again in Term 2 but this time scored by an expert
  6. 6. INFLUENCES ON READINESS Parents: • 46.6% completed year 11 or less • 38.6 % completed year 12 or TAFE diploma/certificate • 14.8% completed university degree • 3 parents did not respond to the question Preschool/childcare attendance: • 94.4% attended preschool/childcare the year before starting school • 64.4% attended one or two days per week • 30% attended three or more days/week • 5.6% did not attended preschool/childcare Parents were asked questions such as: Did your child know other children who were starting at the same school? If yes how many? Did your child have close friends who were going into the same kindergarten class? If yes how many? Does your child have any family (siblings or cousins) that attend the same school? If yes, how many? How many friends in the same kindergarten class does your child see regularly outside of school?
  7. 7. RESULTS  The WAI? Test found no direct correlation between prior school programs such as preschool to be more academically beneficial  But those who attended gained better social skills readying them for school  These factors DID affect readiness: • Children being older • Children who have a less difficult temperament • Children with a higher vocabulary • Being female • Having a parents with a higher level of education
  8. 8. WHERE TO NOW? • The Australian government expressed it’s concern for quality education • Learning readiness: the child’s ability to perform socially, follow instructions and possess appropriate classroom behaviour • School readiness: the academic skills students require to fulfil literacy and numeracy tasks

  10. 10. TEACHING • Some teaching strategies work better than others • Teach literacy and numeracy in different ways to cater for all learners • Parents are a major influence over learning and can complete activities to enhance their learning at home
  11. 11. NUMERACY ACTIVITY • ACARA states that students must connect numbers value with their written word and a symbol
