Summary/Abstract: Reading involves various processes that range from visual identification of writing to understanding the content and context. The main objective of this study is to fathom out the initial process of learning to read (decoding and comprehension) for students from first and second grade. The following tests were used: rapid serial naming (objects and letters), phonological awareness (manipulation and rhyme), picture vocabulary, decoding of words and reading comprehension.This study found statistically significant differences in all components observed in both age groups – students from first and second grade. Decoding of words has strongest correlation with the rapid naming of letters, phonological awareness and rapid naming of objects. Reading comprehension has strongest correlation with vocabulary size, phonological awareness and decoding of words. There was a statistically significant difference between the sexes in terms of phonological awareness, vocabulary size and reading comprehension.Predictors for the decoding of words for Bulgarian students from first and second grade are: the speed at which they read, rapid naming of letters and their level of phonological awareness. Predictors of the reading comprehension are: vocabulary, ability of segmentation and rapid naming of letters.
