The pedagogic meal : A study of language development and linguistic awareness in the preschool meal situation (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to contribute with knowledge about how preschool teachers act as well as express themselves to children during mealtime, in order to promote language development. In addition, the purpose is to discover how preschool teachers view the mealtime situation from a linguistic perspective. The research methods used in this study are observation and interviews. These serve as a complement to one another, in order to demonstrate how preschool teachers act and express themselves during mealtimes and additionally, what kind of attitude these preschool teachers have towards the meal situation as a language development opportunity. The result shows that preschool teachers act and promote language expression in several different ways during mealtimes, by taking advantage of the children's interest in conversation as well as through confirmation and repetition. Furthermore, a language development activity is used to encourage language development. Findings also show that preschool teachers view language development as a broad area and one that occurs constantly throughout all situations. The meal situation is seen as an important opportunity, in which preschool teachers have the advantage of being able to converse with the children.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie har som syfte att bidra med kunskap om hur förskollärare agerar och uttrycker sig till barnen i måltidssituationen för att främja språkutvecklingen. Syftet är också att synliggöra hur förskollärarna ser på måltidssituationen ur ett språkligt perspektiv. Metoderna som används i studien är observation och intervju. Dessa fungerar som ett komplement till varandra och synliggör hur förskollärarna agerar och uttrycker sig i måltidssituationen samt vilken inställning förskollärarna har till måltidssituationen som ett språkutvecklande tillfälle. Resultatet visar att förskollärarna agerar och uttrycker sig språkfrämjande inom flera aspekter under måltidssituationen genom att ta tillvara på barnens intresse i samtal samt genom att bekräfta och upprepa det barnen säger. En språkutvecklande aktivitet används också för att främja språkutvecklingen. Resultatet visar också att förskollärarna ser på språkutveckling som ett brett område. Språkutveckling sker hela tiden, i alla situationer. Måltidssituationen ses som ett viktigt tillfälle som förskollärarna tar tillvara på för att samtala med barnen.
