Abstract

This research aims to understand the influences of playing activity effects and the cognitive
styles toward early numeracy ability, in kindergarten group B in Semarang. This study uses a
method of 2x2 factorial design. The treatment is by giving activity in two methods, which are
playing blocks and playing role play. This research is held in a kindergarten in Semarang with
some group B students, from September until December 2014 with the sample which is taken
through a method of multistage random sampling. The sample consisted of the children of
kindergarten in Taman Putra and III Pertiwi Kindergarten each amounted to 22 students
consisting of 11 field-dependent students and 11 independent field students. Data were analyzed
by descriptive statistics. analysis and testing the hypothesis testing requirements analysis done by
two lanes variance (Anova two-way). The results of this study are: 1) early numeracy ability of
students who play blocks higher than children who play a role, 2) Ability initial count of students
who have the cognitive style field of independent higher than students who have dependent
cognitive style field, 3) the effect of the interaction between play activity and cognitive style, 4) a
group of students who have independent cognitive style field early numeracy ability playing
blocks higher than students who play roles, 5) a group of students who have the cognitive style
of field-dependent numeracy start playing blocks lower than students who play a role, 6) group
of students who play blocks early numeracy skills who have cognitive style field of independent
higher than students who have dependent cognitive style field, 7) a group of students who play
the role of early numeracy ability who have cognitive style field-dependent lower than students who have cognitive style independent field. Based on the above, it can be concluded that the
activity and cognitive style affect the ability of the initial count. Therefore, to improve the initial
counting, selection, and implementation of activities to play and observe the child's cognitive
style possessed very helpful. Based on the above, it can be concluded that the activity and
cognitive style affect the ability of the initial count. Therefore, to improve the initial counting,
selection, and implementation of activities to play and observe the child's cognitive style
possessed very helpful. Based on the above, it can be concluded that the activity and cognitive
style affect the ability of the initial count. Therefore, to improve the initial counting, selection,
