Light Up Our World!

My students need a light table and manipulatives to explore light and colors while building language, math, and science skills!

My Students

My students are bright preschoolers with special needs. They are three to five-year-olds with various disabilities including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, other health impairment, and speech/language delays.

My students are from low-income families and almost all are English language learners.

Some have just arrived in the United States from Mexico with parents who do not speak English. Despite the many challenges they face, they come ready each day to learn and play with the most positive attitudes.

It has been a true blessing to watch my students learn and grow. Their determination and eagerness to learn are what fuels me. These young scholars amaze me every single day with their big hearts! A day in our classroom consists of enthusiasm, energy, and excitement. Every accomplishment, big or small, is celebrated!

My Project

As an early childhood educator, I will always try my best to provide plenty of opportunities and resources to enrich my students’ experience in school. My students learn best by participating in highly engaging and interactive activities. Teaching young preschoolers, some are easily distracted and have a short attention span. I am so happy of the possibility of having a light table, with manipulatives, in our classroom to help all my students learn!

This light table will serve many purposes; together, we will explore the properties of light and color while building math, language, and science skills!

We can learn so much with the translucent manipulatives that includes colors, shapes, numbers, and so much more. There is so much teaching that can take place from letter recognition and sounds, counting, and creating color combinations. These materials will make a huge difference in how we learn and play daily.

Thank you for your support in bringing this project to life for us!
