The purpose of this study was to investigate the competencies of third grade students on linguistic awareness and conservation tasks, and to determine if these skills were related to reading achievement. Two measures of linguistic awareness were used in this study, the Concepts About Print (Sand) Test and the "Technical Language of Literacy" ("TLL") subtest of the Linguistic Awareness in Reading Readiness Test. The Concept Assessment Kit--Conservation (CAK-C) was used to determine conservation skills. The possible relationship between conservation and linguistic awareness was also explored.
