How can this be accomplished? Through DonorsChoose.org and a request for action cameras. The project True Life: A Day in the Life of Pre-K was created and funded thanks to a wonderful friend, Elise.
The camera captured a great moment when it was strapped onto J.C. As J.C. happily runs around playing on the jungle gym, he encounters two of his friends, K.L. and N.K. The two were playing with N.K.'s toy car on the jungle gym ramp. J.C. sees the car and tries to play with it. N.K. and K.L. get upset since J.C. doesn't ask for permission. They scolds J.C., pick up their toy, and walk away. J.C. sits there, very upset, and begins to cry thinking he's just lost two friends. The other two boys noticed how their over reaction caused a good friend to become upset. They go back to J.C., apologize, and allows him to join in on their fun. J.C. is up and running around, happy again.
So many things happen in this short clip.The kids involved are communicating their feelings, socializing through, and problem solving on their own when they run into a conflict. When our kids go out during recess, so many things are happening at once. With 36+ kids running around, it's hard to keep track of all that's happening. This concept of capturing what outdoor play represents in the first person point of view of a child can show people how crucial play is in early childhood education. Enjoy the video!
