Sample text

Spheres of reality deal with inner, phenomenologically perceived “areas” of experience that are at the same time observable in the way the children talk, act, perform and communicate whilst playing. The advantage of this terminology in play theory, when dealing with the complex interplay of reality, pretence and communication, is that spheres are fuzzy “areas” that can overlap and change in their relative quantity as well as in their experienced qualities. Also, spheres of reality as a metaphor are easily visualized as layered one on top of the other illustrating how different experiences are active in conjunction, in the present moment, so that children in play move smoothly and effortlessly between those spheres.

None of the ways of relating to the different spheres can be neglected for the primary establishment of the play activity as well as its maintenance and unfolding in time. As Schousboe’s model shows, the sphere of imagination can become the absolute predominant reality in the minds of the players. The further analysis and argument of this chapter substantiates the ways in which the play group is deeply rooted in social reality, not least the social reality and identities among the players. 8–6 years attend day care from approximately 8 in the morning till 4 in the afternoon.
