How do you communicate the things you want and need in your everyday life? The students in my classroom are 3 to 4 year olds who are limited verbally or completely nonverbal. They constantly surprise me and test the limits of my creativity.
Their diagnoses range from developmental delay, to autism, to down syndrome- and many of them are nonverbal or minimally verbal.
That means they do not communicate by speaking. They communicate by pointing to symbols (pictures and words) in order to let others know what they are thinking.
I create visual symbols to place in my students' classrooms and make personalized communication books so that they can communicate throughout the day.
My students need the preschool light table accessories to help give them an unique visual learning tool when working with their letters, numbers and shape recognition.The light table manipulatives will be a fun hands-on activity for the students to help with pattern work, fine motor skills, creativity, math skills, and literacy skills.
These materials will be used daily in the classroom during centers and exploration time.
The sand and water table will allow children to experience various textures. Students will be able to pour sand and water into various tubes, wheels, scoops and so much more.
While working at these centers, children will be able to interact with their peers. Social interaction in so important for young learners. These materials will be able to be used in the classroom and outside the classroom. The tables can also be changed out for various sensory tables throughout the school year. Items placed in each bin can also be based not the themes that we are learning about in the classroom.
