Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of this qualitative study is to find out teachers in preschool intentions with regular reading aloud. We have examined the interaktion between the preschool teachers and the children in this occurence and the circumstances that have a meaning when preschool teachers choose literature when they are reading aloud to children after lunch in preschool. In this study two preschool teachers have been observed under three opportunities when they were reading aloud to children. After that the preschool teachers have been interviewed about their intentions with this phenomenon. Our results show that the purpose with reading aloud in preschool is foremost for the children to get rest and a stimulation of their language development. We have found that the number of children in the groups has a meaning how the reading aloud turns out. In our discussion we show that the reading aloud in preschool is a complex phenomenon where care and learning interacts with each other, dependent on the number of children in the group and the preschool teachers intentions.
