IZA, Dijnane Fernanda Vedovatto  and  MELLO, Maria Aparecida. Quiet and silent: the movement activities with children in childhood education. Educ. rev. [online]. 2009, vol.25, n.2, pp.283-302. ISSN 0102-4698.

This article discusses the movement activities in everyday routines of the Basic Education teachers, under the perspective of Vigotski´s' Historical-Cultural Theory, whose conception about childish development has a focus on the culture and teachers' mediated activities, as a determination for the childish learning and development. The Movement activities transcend the motor development. It is related to problems resolution, questions, creativity, memory, attention, abstraction, and so on. The Basic Education teachers investigated have experience on working with children, but they don't have knowledge about how to work with movement activities in the educational perspective and thus, they keep the children in a situation of non-movement. Those practices about how to maintain the children quiet and silent show the teachers' conceptions about child and movement, indicating the urgency of a reformulation on the initial and continual processes and courses of the Basic Education teachers.

Keywords : Movement Activities; Early Childhood Education; Historical-Cultural Theory.
