Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to investigate teachers’ experiences with information sharing regarding children’s linguistic development in the transition from preschool to preschool class. Research questions:

* To what degree do teachers prioritize work with children’s linguistic development?

* To what extent does exchange of information regarding children’s linguistic development take place in the transition from preschool to preschool class?

* How is the information transmitted?

* What kind of information is transmitted?

To collect data on preschool and school linguistic work as well as priorities and transmission of information on children’s linguistic development, a questionnaire was constructed. During fall 2012, 76 preschool and preschool class teachers from different parts of Sweden responded to the questionnaire.

Our results show that language development activities are highly prioritized in preschool and preschool class. A transfer of information on children’s language skills between preschool and preschool class takes place though focus seem to differ in some domains. Information is transferred both orally and written, mainly on a group level. Further research is needed on what- how- and why-questions. Another question is what impact the information transmission may have on preschool class activities.
