Brincadeira


A brincadeira, uma atividade dominante na infância, é a forma pela qual a criança começa a aprender secundariamente, é onde tem início a formação de seus processos de imaginação ativa e, também, onde ela se apropria das normas de comportamento que corresponde a certas pessoas.  É considerada uma forma de atividade social infantil que fornece uma ocasião educativa única para as crianças.  Durante a brincadeira as crianças podem “pensar e experimentar situações novas ou mesmo do seu cotidiano, isentas das pressões situacionais”.

Brincadeira (play), a dominant activity in childhood, is the way in which a child begins to learn secondarily...  it's where a child begins the formation of its active processes of imagination, and  learns the apprpriate behavioral standards that correspond with the certain people   .  It is considered a form of social activity that gives children a unique educational opportunity.  During brincadeira (play) children can "think and experience new situations, or even their daily lives, free of situational pressures."
