Development of Preschoolers' Social-Cognitive Play Behaviors.
Pellegrini, Anthony D.
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v55 n3 pt2 p1109-10 Dec 1982
To investigate the development of preschoolers' social-cognitive play behaviors, ten preschoolers (two, three and four years old) were observed in their classrooms on 15 occasions by a time-sampling schedule. Social-cognitive behavior coding (Parten and Smilansky) indicates that children's play became more social as they grew older. (Author/PN)
