My Pre-K students enter my classroom at the age of four. They are from low-income or English as a second language families. Our school is a public school where a high percentage of our students qualify for the free lunch program. The majority of my students have never been to school before so my classroom is their first formal learning experience. They begin with excitement and enthusiasm for learning and love trying new things. I love that I get to encourage and support their growth as learners.
I am hoping to enhance the light table in my classroom with new materials. The light table makes up a learning center for my students. They use it for science exploration and discovery, but there’s so much more to it than that.
A light table can be used to enhance literacy, math, and writing skills in fun and playful ways.
Kids are naturally drawn to the gentle glow of the light table and will stay there for long periods of time, which is great for stretching those budding attention spans.
The light table can be used for everything from open-ended play experiences to arts and crafts, to teaching academic concepts, and more!
I hope to infuse our light table center with opportunities for science, math, literacy, and writing where it will be a powerhouse of learning.
