"Ska vi leka?": En kvalitativ undersökning av inkludering och exkludering i fri lek i förskolan
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this studyhas been to capture preschool children's strategies, when they include and exclude each other in play. My aim was also to find out how children choose to integrate into an already existing game. My questions were: What strategies are used by the children at the preschool when they want to exclude or include each other? How to integrate the children when they want to be involved in an ongoing game and how they will be received during the time of play? My theoretical starting points are from Vygotsky's theory of proximal development zone, and Michel Foucault's perspective on power, and also research on the subject.
The empirical study was conducted using the observations at two preschools. The children I observed were between four to five years old.The results show that children used different strategies, and when the strategy did not work so the child could switch to another. It also showed that children, who could not get into the game, got the help of other children who were already in play or a preschool teacher.Sometimesthe children received no help at all and gave up the hope to get into the game, or got into it by himself.
