Easy Scrapbooking for Early Childhood Education
A few of my blog readers commented about my last post "Scrapbooking with Early Childhood Education". Some of them think that it is too costly and time consuming to do scrapbook pages for their projects with their kids or children at preschool. The traditional way to document projects in reggio emilia approach is by developing the photographs and then pasting them onto card stock. Then add journalling to it before displaying it. I admit that if you would to use traditional scrapbooking method which is the paper scrapbooking, it will be very costly and time consuming. But all of these can be solved by using the digital scrapbooking method. By having a digital camera, all photographs can be saved digitally and be paste onto digital templates or layouts easily using some of the software available (ie. Adobe Photoshop Element or Jasc Paintshop Pro). Free elements can be downloaded from a few digital scrapbooking website such as http://www.digitalscrapbookplace.com and http://www.scrapbook-bytes.com. After placing everything in place, just print it out for display.
