Why Girls Talk More, Read Better

Teacher Insights

Looks like gender has a bearing on learning skills. And this becomes more evident when boys are put through their reading paces. Research says boys struggle when it comes to reading. The ideal way to ease up on this hazzle would be to identify them at a very early age. “Letter-sound knowledge is what best predicts how well students will be able to read later,” says Prof. Hermundur Sigmundsson of Norwegian University.

 

Young children, who are good at recognizing their letters and the accompanying sounds quite early, turn out to be good at reading later on. Why girls score on this fact may be due to several factors like heredity. They begin to talk much earlier than boys and when mothers tend to talk more and even scold girls more. The more you are exposed to letters and sounds, the more stimulated you become.
