Last week I read the book Count and See by Tana Hoban to my little ones. It is a very simple book that uses only black and white photos and numbers. I have wanted to make a similar class book since I first saw Tana's book. On Friday, we went out to our playground and then walked around the college campus where our school is located. There was LOTS of counting as the kids pointed out things I could take pictures of for our book. I used my iphone to take the pictures and then used the free iphone app A Beautiful Messto make the photos black and white and to add numerals and text to the photos. It was incredibly easy. I can't wait to share the resulting book with the kids. I love it. Here are a few pages:
I think we may have to share this book with the younger classes at our school.
