Light Up for Learning!

Help me give my students sensory toys that will allow them to explore some of our key learning targets. The light table will provide students with much needed sensory play to enhance literacy and math skills.

My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher in a K-2 school. This year I am hoping to help my students grow and learn in various ways. One important way that children learn best is through sensory play.

"Play is serious learning.

Play is really the work of childhood" Fred Rogers. This quote truly represents the importance of play in the primary classroom. Kindergarten students will learn best when they are actively engaged.

Children are learning how to read, write, and are learning amazing math standards. Throughout the day we have many opportunities to weave sensory play and learning together. My goal for the upcoming school year is to help make this transition more seamless.

My Project

My kindergarten classroom is filled with a diverse group of learners. Each day we have the opportunity to learn during our workshop blocks. My goal this year is to seamlessly add other sensory play based options into our day. The materials that I have requested will help do this in a fun hands on ways.

Children learn through their senses.

This project will help bring a wonderful resource into the classroom for students to use daily. They will use their sense of touch and sight to learn and also strengthen their fine motor skills. Students will be able to use the sensory table and the different manipulative items during our learning blocks. It will be a space that students will love to explore!
