My students need a light table and the manipulative materials to use on the table.
My kindergarten students love school. Kindergarten is the time in a student’s life when they are just being introduced to the idea of discovery. In today’s classroom, there are many opportunities to reach out to our students in the pursuit of sparking their imagination. My students love to use their imagination and this helps to foster their critical thinking skills.
Imagination and creativity are both resources that we need in the world and starting it in kindergarten is how to foster them.
My students use their critical thinking skills along with their imagination and creativity to imagine a greater future, create beautiful projects, and become leaders in their communities.
Imagination and creativity are both resources that we need in the world and starting it in kindergarten is how to foster them. An excellent way to start this is with a light table. With the ability to see through objects and picture them in an entirely new manner, the students can think outside the box. So many of students just need to be afforded the opportunity to think outside of the box.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is such an important part of a child’s education.
Sparking a lasting interest in science is a great way to create critical thinkers and future scientists, engineers, and more. Light tables allow for students to picture something commonplace, light and manipulatives, in a new and creative way. With the help of a light table, students will develop critical thinking skills and a budding interest in STEM.
Light tables have been used in many Montessori schools as a way to encourage their students use their imagination and critical thinking to play and learn in a different way. My students need to play with real, tactile manipulatives. The light table, maipulative center, and sensory tray, will provide a way for my students to play with not only manipulatives, but also with light. Seeing light in this new way will help to not only inspire their imagination and their critical thinking skills, it will also spark an interest in science.
