MILLER, Stela  and  CLARINDO, Cleber Barbosa da Silva. Learning activity: a tool to constitute authoring capacity in the early years of Elementary School. Educação. Porto Alegre [online]. 2016, vol.39, n.2, pp.261-270. ISSN 1981-2582.

This article aims to understand, from the framework of Cultural-Historical Theory, how the learning activity, the main activity of children in early school age, can be a tool of the authoring process. The man, for his fundamental work activity, throughout history, is constituted as a being that transforms nature and produces culture; by means of the activity, the man produces and, in this production, also transforms his ability to handle objects of human culture. Hence, we say that the products of his own activity are characterized as acts of authorship. In the early years of elementary school, the learning activity, as a special kind of activity that organizes and facilitates the formation of new formations in the psyche of the subject, is constituted as fundamental means in the process of developing the authoring capacity.

Keywords : Elementary School; Learning Activity; Authoring Capacity.
