Våga satsa på lek: en studie om barns samspel i förskolan
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This essay is about how the educators can use the play as a tool to develop childrens social skills with eachother. The work is based on a qualitative study using a survey, where the educators can tell how they work within the play. I chose to use five different participants in my essay. All of them work in the same preschool, south of Stockholm.
In this essay I have two questions. These two are:
- What do the educators tell about the importance of play for children's interaction?
- How do the educators tell how they work with the play to develop the children’s social interaction?
Previous research shows that play gives the children opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically. By adult and children’s interaction the children develops social skills through play. The children learn the consequences of one's behavior and what behavior that is acceptable in the society the children live in. The results of my essay show that educators agree that the play is important for children's development and learning, also that the play is important for the children’s interaction. Educators believe that the play gives children the opportunity to process feelings and experiences, also practice of empathy and finding different solutions to conflicts. It is also clear that it is important that the educator observe and guide the children in their play.
