As a teacher in a low-income school district my students face several challenges both in and out of the class. Early Childhood is such an exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while some of their classmates are learning to imitate sounds or hold a paintbrush. Our group loves hands-on learning activities.
My class consists of 20 awesome and appreciative children.
My children are eager to learn and are always excited about new concepts and ways to learn them. Despite their academic and physical struggles, I want to provide my students with creative, hands-on, and meaningful learning experiences.
You may think a Light Table is just for science exploration and discovery, but there's so much more to it than that! Children are naturally drawn to the gentle glow of the Light Table and it's calming effect. The Light Table 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!
When you infuse your Light Table with opportunities for science, math, literacy, and writing it quickly becomes a powerhouse of learning!
