On the Shelves Snapshot: Working with Numbers on the Light Panel

Learning Numbers on the Light Panel - An Everyday Story

Learning Numbers on the Light Panel - An Everyday StoryI was going to wait until February before we started back homeschooling but Jack in particular is really needing more structure and familiarity to his days, so I’ve started setting up the spaces in our homeschool studio again with explorations and activities – and it feels so nice to be back into the swing of things!

Here’s my first On the Shelves Snapshot for the year. This very simple maths exploration is intended for Sarah (4.75 years). Here she can write the number in the salt as well as create the number with glass gems.

Our salt tray has a clear base which makes it perfect for the light panel – you could also use a clear acrylic serving tray; I’ve seen some recently at Kmart. The salt is just regular table salt and the glass gems are from a discount store (in with the artificial plants). The wooden numbers (here in Australia) are part of this larger set which we use a lot for making numbers.Making Large Numbers - An Everyday Story

I am really looking forward to kicking the year off tomorrow 🙂

  1. I’m really looking forward to following along again this year Katie!!! Thanks so much for sharing! Hope you have a good day today as you kick off again 🙂

  2. I really enjoy reading your blog posts. I can’t wait to see what’s next for the year.

  3. I would love more information on your light panel! How big is it? Will searching Amazon for an artists panel and trusting reviews suffice? Your blog is so fantastic for meeting my homeschooling wants and needs!! Thank you so much 🙂

    1. Ours is an A2 size one from TickIT. It’s similar to this one – http://amzn.to/20KYyzO – but this one looks smaller (maybe A3 size).
