To work with movement activities in the preschool : A development- study (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of my study is to explore which possibilities there are for movement activities and how to use those possibilities. From this study, I will help the pedagogues recognize how to work more or different with movement activities.

I have used participant observations and interviews as methods for my study. I did this at one preschool, because it is a development-study. The observations lasted for two weeks and the interviews were made with the majority of the pedagogues at the preschool.  

The results of my study showed that the preschool teachers think that movement activities are an important part of children’s lives. Movement activities are all around, because the children often play active games. They have many ideas about what movement is and how to work with it. The pedagogues do not think of their outdoor activities in an educational manner, but they would like to. Most of the activities take place in the yard, which also invites the children to physically active games. The children play much on their own, but appreciate when the pedagogues join them. There are only some planned physical activities, sometimes it includes going to the forest while other activities are planned physical training.
