Abstract

This study shows that children make use of the content in play to get a superior position in their peer-culture.

Observations of children age 3-6 years were accomplished during their free playtime and both field notes and videotape recording were used for data collection. Analysis of communication was carried out through a sociocultural perspective.

The social structure in childrens peer-culture is of great importance and by interpreting the implicit communication in play I found different strategies where status positions developed. Negotiations of roles and role-characters were also negotiations of positions and children used both the environment and props in play to position themselves as well as their peers.
