Photos on the Light Table
The children have been very interested in exploring pictures of themselves this week. We thought it would be interesting to photocopy our photos onto overhead transparencies for some exploration on the light table. They copied very well!
The children were drawn to the activity and were eager to first find themselves and then find a friend. It was interesting to listen to their conversations as they noted the differences between colour and black and white photos (e.g., "I can't see what colour your hair is in this picture. My eyes are blue, but not in this picture.") and sorted the photos based on common characteristics (e.g., gender, hair length).
We are hoping to add blank overheads to the centre to that the children can practice writing each other's name and matching names to photos.
