Le rôle du corps dans l’apprentissage des lettres en grande section de maternelle

Abstract : Learning letters is important for kindergarten children because it predicts success in reading and writing in elementary school. Studies show that using the body can improve learning. The aim of this study is to assess the effects of using the body to learn letters. Three trainings are compared : a classic training (with paper and pen), a arm training (letters are explored with the arm) and a body training (letters are explored with the arm and the whole body). Five skills were measured : letter recognition, writing dictated letters, writing direction, writing quality and naming letters. Results show that classic training is more effective than arm training and body training for writing quality and writing dictated letters. Results also show that arm training is as effective as body training. Our study does not allow us to conclude that using the body has an effect on learning letters.
