Get a digital camera!

If you have had any introduction to the Reggio Emilia approach, you will know that documenting children’s learning with photos is a valuable tool.  The beauty of having a digital camera is that you can instantly see the photo, you can store the images on a computer to retrieve at a later date, and you have many options for printing.  (Fine, medium, or ‘draft’ – to save on ink/toner.)

Find one that is easy to use, and sturdy.  They make a great ice-breaker for the child at home visits!  “Would you like to see your picture after I take it?”

We use a Sony FDMavica at school – the kind that can hold floppy disks.   It is nice when we share it between classrooms because teachers have their own supply of disks.
