Abstract

Values are concepts that influence and direct individuals’ behaviors. Because values directly influence society’s structure, values education also takes an important place. Both children’s games and values education have a structure that can diversify values education and make it entertaining during learning. In this study, it was aimed to reveal the perceptions of classroom teachers regarding values education with children’s games. Within the scope of this aim, 272 classroom teachers were investigated for their perceptions. The study adopts a survey model and is of a descriptive quality.

            In the investigation of the study results, it was stated that teachers could conduct values education with children’s games and children’s games could be used in the educational environment as well as the fact that computer games make individuals antisocial. Additionally, the teachers who participated in the study stated that games ensured acting according to facts by filtering events and cases from a logical process, provided creative and innovative thinking and that teachers should know what games mean for children and how important is games’ influence in their development. The participating teachers also reported that children’s games include many elements of values that we brought from past to present and they reflected the cultural values of society.
