    Abstract

    In today’s world, we got a great opportunity to reach for knowledge. However, at the same time we are forgetting about libraries, printed books, and the history about our place, where we spend most of our time. The kids are not as interested as they once were in everyday work of their grandparents, in their style of living when they were kids, because they do not feel the connection with their hometown, for the World Wide Web can connect them with various places. The teachers have a great opportunity to inspire pupils even in lower grades with stories that happened in their hometown or the place they are educating themselves in (with explanatory tales or tales by memory ...). In our master’s thesis, we were asking ourselves about the work of teachers in fourth grade. We wanted to know, if they are teaching children in literacy classes about books and literature texts that are not mentioned in readers. Mostly, we wanted to know, if they included folk texts that are from the place they are educating – in the Coastal and Karst region. In the School Syllabus for Slovene language (mother tongue) from the year 2011, the folk technical terms first appear in the fourth grade, beside the content. Therefore, for our quantitative research we chose only teachers from fourth grade from the Coastal and Karst region, so the survey sample was chosen on purpose. In the research, we asked the teachers with a questionnaire about their discussion of literature texts, about including literature texts, which are not in the readers and about including literature texts, which are from the place, where they are educating, in the literacy classes. With the results, we wanted to encourage teachers from fourth grade in including the folk stories and tales from the place they are educating. We wanted to give them a closer look into folk literacy from the Coastal and Karst region and at the same time, we included many literature texts, which they can use in their literacy classes. This should also encourage teachers from higher grades to continue with including folk literacy in the literacy classes. We can conclude that folk literature is still between us – people are still telling stories, texts are still being written, books with folk texts are still being published. Based on the survey folk texts from the Coastal and Karst region are not represented in readers for fourth grade, but teachers can still find them in books, that are mentioned in our master’s thesis. Based on the survey questionnaires we realized that teachers who use folk texts from the place where they teach are in a minority.
