One of the most popular centers is our class light table or light box. Our light table is a DIY project that I made couple of years ago. We use it for math and literacy centers but I’ve really been wanting to step up our light table game. So a little bit of research and light table counting was born!

You will need:
Optional: Silhouette Cameo/Cricut machine
I cut out the numbers to 100 using my Silhouette Cameo and vinyl. I attached the numbers to the cubes. You can also (and easily) write on the cubes with a Sharpie!
These light table counting cubes can be used in a couple of ways.
Light Table Counting To 100
First, you can just have your students put them in order to 100 on the light table!
Light Table Number Recognition
Next, I took some tracing paper and wrote numbers to 100 on the paper. Place the paper on the light table.
Students can choose a cube, say the number and place it on the number! Great for number recognition!
