In order to ensure the process of mobility of students of the early years of primary education in the municipal education Bauru SP, is being built through a common curriculum for an extension project that has the support of Universidade Estadual Paulista - UNESP. This paper aims to analyze the teachers' view on this process since these are being invited to participate in the construction and are the same that put the curriculum in action. Seeking to identify their perceptions, conceptions, and expectations about this process. Officially, this proposed curriculum construction is guided in a democratic and participatory, but the pedagogical coordinators are the interface between the group of specialist teachers and elementary school teachers, and may cause some misunderstanding and miscommunication. To this end, this project will support the achievement of a qualitative empirical research base that will serve as an instrument to collect data on participant observation and interviews with some school teachers. Our hypothesis is that the proposal, basing it on the democratic and participatory, building common curriculum for elementary schools, is not being interpreted the same way schools in different units, thus presenting difficulties for the organization of work, showing a mismatch between the project, the study of the same school and its developments in teaching.(AU)
