choosing a photo

Last week the children chose the photo they wanted to be a part of the "Through the Eyes of the Child" photo project...

We had discussed what the children had felt was important to them and then given them the opportunity to take photographs of these themes...

The areas the children felt were important were LOVE, PLAY, PAINTING and TRAFFIC SAFETY.

On Tuesday we took a look at all the photos they had chosen and talked about what category they represented and to start thinking about which photos they wanted to be uploaded in the project...

We managed to reduce the 56 photos to 11 (excluding straight away all the ones that were blurred - there actually were not so many of those - but the children did not like the fact that they were not easy to see what the photo was about).

During the day I put the top 11 photos in a file so that the children could look at all of them on the same screen shot... and the children got to point to the one that they considered was their favourite. This reduced the number to the top three, as three of the images got the same number of votes...

I put the top three photos into a file and the children were asked to choose again... this brought it down to the top two, as two of the photos received an equal number of votes, and one slightly less.

Then finally the children slected their favourite from the top two and we had a clear winner!

Next week we will be talking more about WHY they have chosen that particular photo and how it represents what is important to them, and why that is important... But you will have to wait for the photo to be uploaded onto the "Through the Eyes of the Child" project website... the site will be ready for uploading later this month...
