CARVALHO, Regiane; TAHAN FILHO, Wisner  and  SILVA, Ana. The children’s ciranda by the view of children from a rural settlement linked to the landless workers’ movement (MST) . Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.3, pp. 834-854. ISSN 1677-1168.

This research aimed to understand the meanings yielded by children of a rural settlement linked to the Landless Workers’ Movement (MST), in the region of Ribeirão Preto (SP, Brazil), about a space/time assigned specifically to them, called Children’s Ciranda. As methodological instruments, we used field diary, photographs taken by the children; conversations based on the photographs; and puppets. Six children aged from ten to twelve years participated. The results indicate that "Ciranda" has been signified by children as a space of socialization and varied learnings among adults and children, marked by the construction of affective, socio-environmental and generational relations, highlighting playfulness. We conclude that children realize that there is an intentional project for them and they take property of this space as critical subjects who collaborate in its construction and / or compete with adults. This feeling of having the “Ciranda” as their own space authorizes them to propose improvements to its realization.

Keywords : Child; Children’s ciranda; Research with children; MST (Landless Workers’ Movement).
