Abstract [sv]

Utveckling av det svenska språket hos nyanlända barn i förskolan är en empirisk studie om pedagogernas arbetssätt, metoder och strategier för att främja nyanlända barns språkutveckling samt betydelsen av modersmålet för språkutvecklingen. Sex kvalitativa intervjuer genomfördes med sex pedagoger verksamma vid fem förskolor i mångkulturella områden i en medelstor stad i Sverige. De teoretiska utgångspunkterna som ligger till grund för studien är Vygotskijs sociokulturella teori, Piagets teori av den kognitiva utvecklingen, samt Bruners teori om språkutveckling. I resultaten har framkommit att utvecklig av det svenska språket hos nyanlända barn upplevs som en utmaning men samtidigt som en spännande uppgift för pedagogerna. Det har visat sig att trygghet, barns samspel, pedagogers närvaro och stöd, tecken- och kroppsspråk, olika stödmateral samt modersmålet är avgörande för barns språkutveckling.

Abstract [en]

Development of the Swedish language of newly-arrived children in preschools is an empirical study about preschool-teachers’ work procedures, their methods and strategies for supporting newly-arrived children’s language development and about the importance of the children’s mother tongue for their language development. Six qualitative interviews were conducted with preschool teachers working in five different preschools in multicultural areas in a medium-sized town in Sweden. The theories that form the basis for the study are Vygotskij’s sociocultural theory, Piaget’s theory of the cognitive development, and Bruner’s theory of language development. The result of the study shows that preschool teachers have experienced the process of the Swedish language development of newly-arrived children as a challenging as well as an exciting task. It has been also revealed that feeling of safety, interaction among children, presence and support of preschool teachers, sign and body language, various support material and mother tongue are crucial for children´s language development.
