Help me give my students a light table and accessories. Light tables are fun and engaging ways for students to practice math, literacy, and fine motor concepts. This engaging tool motivates and lengthens attention spans and focus.
I teach Kindergarten in a title I school in the giant school district of APS. My students come from a variety of different backgrounds - I teach English language learners, students with special needs, immigrants, etc. Most importantly, I teach young children who learn through experience and play. Some of these five year olds have never been to school before and our classroom is their first experience with formal education. My goal is to reach all of my students to instill a love of learning and problem solving.
Being a title I school, many of my students lack access to STEM materials at home.
It is so important to me that they have access in the classroom. By having hands-on STEM materials readily available for my students, my hope is to promote learning experiences that allow them to explore, inquire, and discover.
Children learn best through play. Play allows students to experience their environment authentically; applying what they already know and encouraging them to question, inquire, and discover. Play is vital for physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development.
Purposeful play creates deep learning experiences that are vital in early childhood education.
A light table and accessories will provide an engaging sensory and learning experience for my students. My students will be engaged in math, ela, and fine motor practice. They will also be involved in collaboration and problem solving, skills transferable to every subject. Engaging tools, such as a light table, lengthen the focus and attention spans of early learners. Help us light up our love of learning!
