Help me give my students a light table and manipulatives that will give them a new way to explore literacy, math, and writing skills.
I teach in a Head Start classroom that is full of diversity. These students come from many different backgrounds and have very diverse family dynamics. A majority of our students come from the Early Head Start program that is offered before Head Start. This has given them a chance to be exposed to learning and some of the activities we do before even stepping foot into a classroom. Much of the learning we do is through play. The students interact with their peers and the teachers while using manipulatives provided at each interest area.
Social and Emotional skills are the foundation of our learning.
The students practice regulating their own emotions, establishing positive relationships, and participating cooperatively in group settings. Once the students are able to accomplish these skills, they are ready to begin learning literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies!
My students love to explore literacy, math, and science in new and exciting ways. Children are naturally drawn to the gentle glow of the light table and spend long periods of time there. This will allow my students to stretch their growing attention spans while using hands-on learning.
The light table creates opportunities for science, math, literacy, and writing skills, which will quickly help it become a powerhouse of learning!
The light table is a great tool to encourage imagination, increase attention, and spark conversation. The light table and manipulatives will allow for the students to engage in conversation about science inquiry, magna-tile constructing, color mixing, and more! The manipulatives will allow for the students to not only practice their literacy and math skills, but to continue development of their fine motor skills.
