This study documented the effects of print referencing on prekindergarten students during storybook reading in the areas of letter knowledge and phonological awareness. Students were assessed at the beginning of the six week study and then again at the end of the study. Assessment measures using Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening - PALS PreK included informal measures that assessed the children’s knowledge of letter, sound recognition, and phonological awareness. The treatment identified successful changes based on student’s increase in knowledge of letters, sound recognition and phonological awareness using print referencing techniques during storybook reading. These results support the existing research although further research is needed to confirm the results that are being presented in this study.
