This week we invited the children to explore literacy on the light panels. The children took turns practicing their own letters and names on the light panel in paint under contact paper. The movement of their fingers moved the paint around resulting in their letters being lit up from underneath. The children really enjoyed practicing their letter and erasing them and starting over again. This type of sensory play integrated into early literacy attracted many of the children to the activity.
