"I want to see my picture NOW!" That's the general response heard from my pre-kindergarten students upon seeing the flash from my camera. And why shouldn't it be? During my past 7 years as an early childhood educator, I almost ALWAYS had my digital camera attached to my hand. Whether it was to document a first-time achievement, making a class book, or just to take a field trip picture, my camera was a very important tool in the learning that took place in my classroom. The children could instantly see what I had photographed and "ooh" and "ahh" over the results. Unfortunately, Hurricane Katrina changed all of that when my classroom was flooded. I lost the majority of my materials including my digital camera and accessories that went with it. The use of a digital camera is vital in my teaching practices. I try to take pictures of each child every week to document their growth in learning. We use photographs to make books to keep in our classroom library to promote literacy. We also take pictures on field trips so the children can make a memory book of their first year in school. Students and parents love to see the year through pictures and stories. I would like to replace the digital camera, printer dock, and memory card in my classroom. My pre-kindergarten classroom is made up of 20 four year old students who all qualify for free/reduced lunch. The majority of the school was greatly impacted by Hurricane Katrina, and most students are still living in FEMA trailers at this time. Due to the losses in their homes, this may be the beginning of new memories for these families. In summary, I would like to purchase a new digital camera, printer dock for immediate prints, and a memory card. This will assist my students in language/literacy development and allow them to see their growth throughout the year. In this case, a picture truly is worth a thousand words.
