Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In my degree project I have chosen to write about the social interactions in children’s play. Iwanted to study their free play and the time when their teachers tell them what to play to seewhat their social interactions look like. The purpose with my research is to study whathappens in the social interactions in their different playing situations.I performed three observations of the free play and three observations of the guided play at apreschool to study what social interactions that takes place in the different playing situations.What happens and what patterns can I find in their play.In my research I had some questions that this project rests upon:
What happens in the social interactions in the different playing situations?
How do the children’s different social interactions look?The children that I have observed showed me that when they are interacting they especiallyuse their cognitive abilities, because an interaction needs a certain mental development. Thesecognitive abilities give an expression in the body language, to be able to share a commonattention, the possibility to share a state of mind or affections with one or more friends. When I observed from a linguistically point of view, I saw there it was a lot of use for words in thedifferent social interactions and there was a lot of body language.If there is a group of children then they have to learn in some way to communicate and tointeract with each other and sometimes it will lead to a fight and sometimes it will go fine. Inmy observations I have seen that the social interactions worked out and that for the most partthe children were considered of the others feelings. Even if it became different roles in theirplay but no social interaction is alike and the children learn by every situation they are given.
