Abstract

This research was carried out to determine the opinions of teachers and parents about the reflection of the TV series watched by primary school students on the games they play. In the study, an interview form was applied to teachers and parents, who belonged to the study group from which qualitative data was collected. The participants of the research were chosen among the 3rd and 4th-grade primary school students’ classroom teachers and parents in Samsun province and its districts (Alçam, Asarcık, Atakum, Ayvacık, Bafra, Çarşamba, Havza, İlkadım, Kavak, Lâdik, Ondokuz Mayıs, Salpazarı, Tekkeköy, Terme, Vezirköprü, Yakakent) in the 2020-2021 academic year. The study group of the research consisted of 61 parents and 61 teachers. The analysis of the data was carried out by using the descriptive analysis technique through the qualitative analysis program MAXQDA 22. As a result of the analysis of the opinions obtained from the teachers and parents, it was concluded that the 3rd and 4th grade students who watched TV series were influenced by these TV shows. They played mostly violent games and imitated the TV series characters they watched earlier in their plays.
