Abstract

The analysis of primary results of realization by preschool age children of the moral norms presented in the verbal form – moral judgments is offered. Notion “moral judgments” is defined in the context of considering the cognitive component of moral consciousness. On the basis of the conducted methods «History», «Conversation» (modified by G. Uruntayeva and Y. Afonkina) the average indicators on the sample on all scales regarding children’s understanding of the essence of the following 12 moral qualities: «kindness», «anger», «lying», «honesty», «generosity», «greed», «rudeness», «politeness», «sensitivity», «cruelty», «boastfulness» and «modesty» are determined. The obtained results demonstrated that the majority of senior preschoolers, expressing moral and evaluative judgments, have a vocabulary that nominates moral concepts. According to the method «Story drawings» (modified by the same authors) the levels of children’s awareness of moral qualities and the ability to determine morality in specific life situations based on verbalization of the essence of moral events are determined.
