Abstract [en]

The aim of this qualitative study is to understand more about children’s interaction and the meaning-making in pre-school. Children’s communication and interaction are studied by introducing and dramatizing literary characters. This has been taped on video as well as audio. The pre-school is a social and cultural place, where children meet and interact with each other. The context is complex. Therefore, a metaphor was used to describe the results of this dynamic process where differents and the whole connect. The result of children’s interaction shows that they learn more together and approach the zone of proximal development. The result shows how children interpret their experiences by creating new meaning. Emotions and thoughts are united and language is “the tool” for the child to interpret the dramatizations. Children’s ability to atunement and intersubjectivity will enrich their experience. The dialogue is a prerequisite for meaning- making. Children seek other children and the result shows that their interaction and meaning-making cannot be compensated by adult-child interaction. However, when children imitate each other and improvise from their prior cultural experience they make fun of adults and play with the norms and values in their culture. The dramatizations creates a forum for developing children’s meaning-making. They become social actors and create a cultural content in interaction with other children and teachers. It is important for children to meet other children in pre-school. They develop their individual and social relationship and create a shared culture that is constantly changed and renewed. Keywords: Pre-school children, interaction, making-meaning, zone of proximal development, dialogue, imitation, improvisation
