Abstract: This study explores the relationship between play and authoritative discourses (Bakhtin, 1981) in a kindergarten mathematics classroom. Drawing on interpretive methodological traditions, the research team video recorded and took field notes on a week of geometry lessons following a professional development session in which teachers co-designed playful geometry lessons with the researchers. Our findings demonstrated that engaging in play allowed children to construct their own internally persuasive discourses about mathematics.
