I teach kindergarten in a suburb of a large city in Missouri. We are a National Blue Ribbon School, a National School of Character and a Missouri Gold Star School. My students come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. It doesn't matter what they have experienced the first five years of their lives before coming to school because all children are the same in that they love learning! They love being active, engaged participants in their learning.
Kindergarten is a magical age in which everything is exciting to students.
I am blessed that I get to be their very first elementary teacher!
My students would love to have a dedicated light table. On the light table, they can build and explore with the light table accessories I already have in the classroom, such as blocks, shapes, numbers, and letters. A light table would allow them to have fun tracing and drawing as well.
I currently have portable light tables, but they are not sturdy and the cords keep breaking.
I have to plug them all in individually, which limits where I can set them up in my classroom. I would love to have a dedicated light table for the children to use all of the time!
