Must Have Items for the Preschool Light Table


Episode Summary

One of our favorite items to use during center time in preschool is the light table.  Kids love things that light up - shoes, glow sticks or fun night lights - light brings another element of interest.  When I put a light table in our preschool classroom, it was an easy sell. The thing gets used daily and we can do so many learning activities right on the table!
