The aim of this research was to study most common competitive behaviors which were expressed by preschool children during a daily program in a kindergarten. The sample consisted of 176 children with Mage=5.2 year coming from 10 kindergarten classes. We observed preschool children in kindergarten classroom and recorded their competitive behavior using the observational system OSACK (Observational System Assessing Competition in Kindergarten). The data of 20 hours (1 hour in each classroom for two times) observation showed that of twelve competitive behaviors (eight verbal and four physical) which were included in the observational system OSACK, the competitive behavior with higher frequency which express by preschool children was “Disagree with each other” and competitive behaviors with lower frequency were “Compare themselves to other based on their physical characteristics” and “Take the place of another child”.
