TEACHING READING CHILDREN AT EARLY AGE DOES NOT WARRANT BENEFITS AT SCHOOL

The desire of many parents to teach their children to read as early as possible does not guarantee that the child will have any advantages, studying in the first grade with peers who do not even know the letters. This conclusion was made by scientists from Finland and Estonia.

Learning to read at an early age does not guarantee school benefits

The desire of many parents to teach their children to read as early as possible does not guarantee that the child will have any advantages, studying in the first grade with peers who do not even know the letters. This conclusion was made by scientists from Finland and Estonia.

According to the results of their research, it turned out that spending a large amount of nerves, effort and money on the acquisition of educational literature and hiring tutors for the purpose of teaching children to read before school is useless.

According to one of the authors of the study, early reading ability does not give the child any advantage during the period of education in primary school. In the process of analysis, specialists took the skills of Estonian and Finnish preschool children as the basis. The former, upon arrival at school, already had good reading skills, while the latter did not. As it turned out, already in the first grade, this difference between them disappeared.

Experts note that it’s easy to teach children to read, so it makes no sense to force them to learn this in preschool years and exert psychological pressure on them when they have not yet shown due interest in this lesson. They also consider it pointless to test preschoolers to read and use the results when deciding whether or not to accept a child in a particular school.

Scientists sent their findings to the relevant ministries of both countries. At the same time, experts note the relevance of comparing the skills of preschoolers of both countries for several reasons. Firstly, the Estonian and Finnish languages ​​are related and relatively easy to learn. Secondly, in both countries, schooling starts from 6-7 years. However, there are differences in the school systems of these states: in Estonia, children are taught to read at preschool age, and in Finland only in primary grades.
