Invitation to Explore Translucent Stacking Pegs on the Light Table
Anything that’s translucent will make for magic on any light table. Discount School Supply’s Environments® earlySTEM™ Translucent Stacking Pegs are perfect for STEM Concepts: sorting, patterning, and colors, Fine Motor Skills: Practicing hand-eye coordination while stacking, Creative Thinking: Endless possibilities through block play.
When children explore the natural progression of block play, they have to learn how to move and manipulate objects, as well as have the fine motor control to “click” them into place. Building toys such as pegs help the child enhance their visual-spatial skills which is crucial for reading readiness. Encourages thinking and reasoning: these skills are what make children become well-rounded, independent and successful adults. Involves focus and patience: children need to work slowly and carefully to be successful at creating their designs. Through building, the child will learn to experiment and make new discoveries about how things work.
Adding the light table to this experience is an excellent resource for sensory input. Children are often calmed by the glow of the table and the visual stimulation enhances their experience as they explore.
