ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine the relations of task orientation, semantic memory(vocabulary, morphological awareness), and reading related variables (amount of reading, reading motivation,reading environment of home, literacy activity at home, and private tutoring) to reading comprehension andword mathematical problem solving and to examine which variables would predict readingcomprehension and word mathematical problem solving among 109 first graders. Results showedthat, first, reading comprehension and mathematical problem solving skills were associated with taskorientation, vocabulary, and morphological awareness. Second, child s task orientation rated byparents, vocabulary and morphological awareness explained unique variance of reading comprehension. Third, children’s task orientation, morphological awareness, and fundamental calculation skillexplained word mathematical problem solving ability. The results suggest that task orientation andmorphological awareness contribute to reading comprehension and word mathematical problemsolving in Korean elementary school children.
