Based on the results of calculations using SPSS type 25.0 through an independent t test, the value of the t test t count is 6.339 with df = 28. Price t table = with a significant value (P) = 0.000 &gt; α = 0.05. Thus the calculated t value &gt; t table which means H0 is rejected and H1 is accepted. And it can also be seen that the value of sig (2 tailed) = 0.000 &lt;0.05, which means that the value of sig (2) is less than 0.05, then H0 is rejected and H1 is accepted. Thus, the value of t count &gt; t table means Ho is accepted and H1 is rejected. So, the value of t count &gt; t table, which means that Ho is rejected and Ha is accepted. So it can be concluded that the show and tell method has a significant influence on children's speaking abilities.</em></p> Nida Fauziyyah Fauziyyah Samin Syahidin Copyright (c) 2023 Nida Fauziyyah Fauziyyah, Samin Syahidin 2023-08-31 2023-08-31 1 1 27 40 The Effect of Early Literacy Reading Ability through Letter Cards for Children Aged 5-6 Years (Experiment at Meranti Setu Kindergarten in 2023) <p><em>The background of this research case involves the challenge of enhancing reading skills in 5-6 year old children.
