Korean Journal of Child Studies : The Differences in Children`s Play Behavior according to the Level of their Playfulness Leadership and Communicative Ability
Yoon Ji Ko , Myoung Soon Kim
The purpose of this study was to investigate the differences in children`s play behaviors in terms of their levels of playfulness leadership and communicative ability. The subjects were 152 children aged between 3 and 4 and their 20 teachers at 10 child care centers in the Seoul and Gyeonggi area. The results of this study suggested that play behaviors were related to the level of playfulness leadership and communicative ability in 3 and 4 years old children. Among these children those who scored highly in terms of their playfulness leadership and communicative ability were involved more frequently in both ``group play`` and ``symbolic play`` whereas those who achieved lower scores were more frequently involved in ``solitary play`` and ``functional play``. However in case of ``constructive play`` significant results were not found in relation to the independent variables named in this study. ``Parallel play`` and ``games with rules`` were the only categories within which the findings revealed that children`s play behaviors have shown different patterns according to the age of the child and to the levels of those three independent variables mentioned above.
