Wonderful Benefits of Using Light Panels in your Classroom & Practice

Leemor leemor@playingandlearning.co.za Classroom Resources Sensory Play

Light Panels offer wonderful opportunities for exploration, discovery & free play, inviting children in to play and learn. 

Light Panels are a fabulous learning tool that enhance sensory play opportunities.  The activities and learning experiences are endless and encourage a range of skills and development such as:

  • Creativity
  • Fine Motor Development and pre-writing skills
  • Hand-Eye Coordination and Control
  • Concentration
  • Problem solving
  • Spatial awareness – experimenting with shape and space
  • Language development
  • Recognising patterns and colours.
  • Writing skills – names, words, letters, numbers and shapes

Consider some of these benefits:

  • A lighted surface enhances the learning experience as we learn through visual images

  • Materials presented to children on a light table encourage children to notice the subtle details and become better observers

  • Lighted surfaces enhance colours and provokes creativity in children

  • Educators often comment how children focus longer and tend to have longer attention spans when engaged on a lighted surface. A light table adds a sense of curiosity to a child’s experience

  • Lighted surfaces gives us the opportunity to closely observe the physical properties of materials

Aside from the vast array of educational and entertaining activities that can be done using light panels, they are an excellent source of visual sensory input. Children are often calmed by the visual simulation as they explore.

In addition to the Light Panel, we offer a wide variety of quality translucent accessories to maximize your play time.  Browse our varied selection of transparent and translucent resources here.
