Researchers from Japan's Hokkaido University compare 6 year old children’s ease with oral and written math problems to see if children's accuracy and comfort with math would be determined by their culture.
Research shows that the more skills children bring with them to kindergarten - in basic math, reading, even friendship and cooperation - the more likely they will succeed in those same areas in school. Hence, "kindergarten readiness" is the goal of many preschool programs, and a motivator for many parents. Now it's time to add language to that mix of skills, says a new University of Washington-led study.
