Twinkle, Twinkle Little StarPhonological Awareness Will Get Me Far:  Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star Phonological Awareness Will Get Me Far Jessica Riddle, B.S. Kathryn Polmanteer, Ph.D., CCC-SLP Abstract:  Abstract This study investigated the effect of phonological awareness training on childcare providers who voluntarily attended a phonological awareness training session Purpose The purpose of this study is to determine if phonological awareness training for childcare providers increases their understanding and knowledge of phonological awareness. Background:  Background 100,000 children under the age of six are receiving childcare by someone other than a parent or relative in the state of Kentucky (Childress, 1999) Studies have found that higher quality childcare is associated with a variety of better cognitive and socioemotional outcomes for children. Studies used with staff volunteering for participation found that in-service training is an effective way to educate staff on language. U.S. Department of Education reported that 93% of childcare teachers had some child-related training; 36% had a formal, college-level teacher preparation; and 24% held a credential from a professional organization Studies have linked Phonological Awareness abilities to literacy success. Studies incorporating phonological awareness activities with children have shown an increase in these children’s phonological awareness abilities. Method:  Method Two groups of childcare providers in two different counties were participants in this study. Group A received a two hour in-service on phonological awareness and how to implement it into a childcare setting. Group B, the control group received no training Self-developed multiple choice phonological awareness assessment. In-service performed by the primary researcher Method:  Method Experimental Group 6 participants Age 20 – 56 years Mean=35 Mean Length of Employment 2.75 years Education level 8th grade – 12th grade No college Control Group 5 participants Age 21 – 37 years Mean = 23.6 Mean Length of Employment 3.9 years Some college – Bachelor’s degree Phonological Awareness Presentation OutlinePhonological Awareness Training and the Implications for Childcare ProvidersJessica Riddle:  Phonological Awareness Presentation Outline Phonological Awareness Training and the Implications for Childcare Providers Jessica Riddle I.

Discussion:  Discussion Overall, Control group participants performed better on pre-test measures than participants in Experimental group. Results from study appear to indicate that the implementation of a two-hour in-service did not increase provider’s in the Experimental groups knowledge. Findings of this study are not congruent with findings from previous studies. Discussion:  Discussion Motivation of participants or researcher may have affected results. The length and type of in-service may have also affected results Differences between the two participating facilities not controlled could have affected the results.
