My students need light tables in order to explore color and light.
My classroom is the gateway into schooling for most of my students. I teach preschool as part of a program that is free to families and serves “at-risk” children. Most of these students are low-income, speak a different language at home, or have other factors that make their lives more challenging. It is my job to make learning fun and enjoyable as I connect with them and make them feel loved.
Some of my students don’t have any books in their households; the first ones they interact with are the ones provided at school.
They don’t always know how to play cooperatively with other children, hold a pencil, cut with scissors, or put on their own shoes!
Despite the challenges they face, my students come to me excited to learn, eager to make friends, and willing to work. They are incredibly friendly and jump at the chance to help out a friend or teacher. Preschool is the time to foster a love of learning and a feeling of acceptance and self-worth for my students. The growth they make during this first year is incredible and we can’t do it without help!
I am requesting two light tables for my students. In preschool, it is important to grow scientific observation and exploration. Light tables provide an excellent opportunity to play with color and light while learning. These tables in particular are easy to store and set up, as they don't take up as much room as a traditional table.
Every child can be a scientist!
These light tables will help provide my students with experiences they could not otherwise have. Once we have the light tables, we can use x-rays to learn about animals and the human body. We can use the color shields to talk about art and color. Students will be encouraged to explore using different materials, making predictions, experimenting, and coming to a conclusion. Light tables provide ample opportunity for preschoolers to become scientists!
