The main goal of this study was to set up relations
between the phonological awareness, the logical-math knowledge and the ?mental attention?.
All these three concepts are related with learning to read. 75 pre readers? students who
attended the second pre school year were randomly distributed in three groups: the first group
was trained in phonological awareness, the second was trained in logical-mathematical knowledge
and the third did not receive any experimental treatment. Results suggest that phonological
awareness facilities learning to read; training programs in logical-mathematical knowledge
could increase learning of the phonological awareness; and ?mental attention? may predict
reading acquisition.

Key words:

reading acquisition, phonological awareness, logical-math knowledge, mental attention.
