Play is Not the Work of the Child: Young Children's Perceptions of Work and Play.
Wing, Lisa A.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v10 n2 p223-47 Jun 1995
Using qualitative methods of participant observation and in-depth interviewing, this research explored kindergarten, first-, and second-grade children's perceptions of classroom activities. Young children perceived classroom activities in terms of what they considered to be work and what they considered to be play. A work-play continuum is presented that incorporates children's characterizations. (AA)
