Scientific

The present study aims to investigate reading ability and self-perception in students of 1st, 2nd and 3rd Grade. Reading ability correlates positively with self-perception getting stronger by age. The sample comprised 206 students of 1st, 2nd and 3rd Grades of public and private school. Reading ability was measured by psychometric tools standardized with primary school students in Greece. Reading comprehension, was measured by Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children Fifth Edition» or «Wisc-V» and self-perception was measured by “Self-perception scale for children I” (Makri-Botsari, 2001). Word decoding and self-perception peers’ relationships are statistically significant positively correlated and both differed by gender, type of school and parents’ educational level. In addition, multiple regression showed that gender and type of school affect the depended variables the most, in a no statistically significant way. The findings are discussed in the framework of literature and finding regarding reading and personal growth.
