Light It Up

Help me give my students the opportunity to explore hands-on activities with a light box and manipulatives - where they can create, build, and trace a variety of words, letters, and projects of their own creativity.

My Students

I teach in a small, rural school in the Upstate of South Carolina. Often times, my student's first educational experience is found in my Kindergarten classroom. They are bright, eager, and creative students who love hands-on activities and experiences to explore throughout the school day.

My Project

The materials and supplies I am requesting for my classroom will give my students the chance to explore hands-on activities that are sparked by their own creativity. The light table will be centered in the Building Center of my classroom, where students can use their own imagination to build and create projects of their choice. Additionally, this light table will be used during literacy learning centers to focus on handwriting for each of my students.

The donations to this project will help my students gain fine-motor skills that are necessary for success far beyond the Kindergarten classroom.
