Pre-K Counts Learning Through STEM!

My students need to be exposed to more STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Having a Coloring Changing Light Table with different accessories is a great way to get these students introduced to STEM materials.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, smiles on their faces, laughter, ready and excited to learn about the new adventure in store for them.

I teach at a Pre-K Counts that resides inside of a rural school district, where most of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

My students range in the ages of 3-5 where cognitive, social, and emotional development is most important. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

The big new push in early childhood education is STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). What better way to get these students exposed than a Color Changing Light Table and several different accessories? Here are all the manipulatives the students need to explore the properties of color and light while building math, language, and science skills at the same time! The manipulative set is filled with a huge variety of translucent plastic pieces—from letters and numbers to pattern blocks ands color chips, which is perfect for practice with everything from counting to creating color combinations, or just simply exploring.

Most children at a young age learn through touch and play.

Having different sensory items to utilize over a Color Changing Light Table is the perfect way to expose these children to learning all about STEM!

Take sensory play to another level with the translucent materials included in the sensory set, beads, rings and balls…creating unique textures that invite kids to explore light and color hands on. Plus, all three materials are washable!

Having a variety of different materials to utilize with the light table will help with several different developmental learning areas. The children will have the chance to interact with another peer alongside the Color Changing Light Table to discuss all the new exciting things they are exploring and learning!
