Abstract (Summary)
In the curriculum ”Läroplan för förskolan -98” is prescribed that the preschool- teachers shall support the ability of the child to create and communicate with song and music. Based upon this, the purpose of this study is to study the preschool-teachers different views of the organised “singing-together” (Swedish:”sångsamling”) as a pedagogic situation. Former research shows that children sing the language before they know how to speak it. To the small child the language is just tune and rhythm – a kind of musical phenomena.This study is phenomenografic with a qualitative design. A videotaped “sångsamling” is the base of the gathered data.The data is categorized into two main categories: “Sångsamlingen” as a situation of learning and “Sångsamlingen” as a situation of joy and happiness. Emanating from these categories the researchers have found that “sångsamlingen” stimulates language, mathematical thinking, ability of social relations, cultural learning and the motion of the child. “Sångsamlingen” is important to the development of language and emotional capacity of the preschool- child. The language is trained by rhymes and tunes which also may affect learning in maths. To evoke the lust to learn it’s important to vary and develop “sångsamlingen” by using instruments, song bags and song cards.
