Exploring With Light

My students need a light box to explore letters, colors, shapes and numbers in the sensory area of my classroom.

My Students

Our school day is a fun filled day with young preschool scholars who are discovering more about the world they live in everyday. Through sensory play we open up their minds to receive the beauty that surrounds them.

My scholars are young special education preschool students who have been identified with a variety of needs ranging from language delays to social impairments to mobility issues.

They have an energetic zest for life and are always investigating things and figuring out how they work.

My Project

These resources will be used in a low lit sensory area of the classroom and will be available to access throughout the day. We focus on a different letter, color, shape and number each week and this would be a unique way for continued exposure to these academic ideas.

By having this light box set in the classroom, we will be able to provide a gentle sensory experience for those students that need reduced lighting and also a tactile learning area for those students that are hands on learners.
