Primary Foundation: Fine Motor Skills
Fine motor development is related to the ability to draw, write, and participate in everyday routines, including shoe tying, pencil gripping, scissor cutting, managing buttons, snaps, & zippers, typing, & art projects. Did you know? Each day fine motor skills are required over 350 times!
Hearing a steady beat and keeping a steady beat develops the internal dialogue, that little voice inside your head.This inner dialogue starts around 3-5 years old by hearing/listening to human voices (talk, sing, pitch).Internal dialogue is necessary for acquiring receptive and expressive language.
These concepts aid the brain in auditory discrimination by sounding out letter sounds and words in a receptive language and discriminating words in spoken language.
The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that help control balance, eye movement and spatial orientation. This system helps to keep students stable and upright. If your student has trouble with body awareness, (Sensory system: the vestibular system) or balance (sensory system: the proprioceptive system) they will often struggle with classroom activities such as letter and number formation, handwriting, copying from the board and tying their shoes.
Monkey-See Eye Tracker Station
Monkey See Eye Tracker Station
Includes Bean Bags
Our Monkey-See eye tracker station helps to increase visual stamina for test taking. There are muscles in our eyes that focus near and far and muscles that allow us to track left to right and up and down. These muscles should be strengthened in the same way as our arm muscles. Eye tracking exercises strengthen the muscles in our eyes to increase the length of time that eyes can focus on reading.
Ele-Fun Eye Tracker Station
Our Ele-Fun eye tracker station helps to increase visual stamina for test taking. There are muscles in our eyes that focus near and far and muscles that allow us to track left to right and up and down. These muscles should be strengthened in the same way as our arm muscles.

Padded scooters come with a lifetime warranty.
Heavy duty bearing wheels.
The balance rope is 6 foot long. The 2" round polypropylene rope provides a more challenging walking surface than a traditional flat beam, increasing the balance difficulty for all ages.
Why are gross motor skills important?
Gross motor skills are important to enable children to perform everyday functions, such as walking, running, skipping, as well as playground skills (e.g. climbing) and sporting skills (e.g. catching, throwing and hitting a ball with a bat). These are crucial for everyday self-care skills like dressing (where you need to be able to stand on one leg to put your leg into a pant leg without falling over).
Gross motor abilities also have an influence on other everyday functions. For example, a child's ability to maintain table top posture (upper body support) will affect their ability to participate in fine motor skills (e.g. writing, drawing, and cutting) and sitting upright to attend to class instruction, which then impacts on their academic learning. Gross motor skills impact on your endurance to cope with a full day of school (sitting upright at a desk, moving between classrooms, carrying your heavy school bag).

ABL Learning Assessment Steps
ABL Learning Assessment Steps
ABL Assessment steps are used in the ABL Learning Lab at the elementary level. Children begin by walking up and down stairs, and increase difficulty using progressions as laid out in the ABL Lab Manual. As children advance, they hold various objects to engage the full body while encourage balance, proprioception, crossing the midline, and motor skills. More advanced learners, will be able to utilize ABL Academic Card Sets as part of the Assessment Steps Station, to anchor learning and improve retention and memory retrieval in the classroom.
Lily Bridge Set
The curvy bridge board can be used to construct a humpback bridge or a reverse bridge, allowing children to practice the actions of walking or crawling up and down and to enhance their physical coordination, dexterity, and balance. The process of making changes in island heights and creating different path combinations of the Water Lily system can help children cultivate spatial concepts and improve their action planning and problem-solving skills
5 Piece Set - 2 Bridges, 3 lily pads
12 Piece Set - 4 bridges, 8 lily pads
The balance beam enables kids to be challenged while improving balance and coordination. Kids improve vestibular balance, movement coordination, and concentration while understanding their body's center of gravity. The balance beam also helps to improve self-confidence, learning stability and sense of reaction. Each unit is equipped with the ability to add another beam on each end, thus allowing facility operators to make the beam as long as they need.
Each box is a different height, size, and is uniquely designed to accommodate several attachments and can easily be arranged in multiple configurations to create an endless array of obstacle courses. Boxes include graphics of oranges, lettuce, and strawberries

Dimensions: 60x60Why is Mindfulness Important and Relevant in the Classroom?
Mindfulness aids the brain in anchoring information and improves memory retrieval, preparing the brain to take a test, and combining many skills for higher level thinking. Mindfulness, as often described in young children, is the practice of paying attention in a very special way. It teaches children to build an awareness of oneself, others, and one's surroundings. Specifically, mindfulness training can help with observing, detachment, and self-compassion.
High Five Jungle Wall Station
The High Five Jungle was designed to challenge the child to cross their physical midline. Simply stated, cross their left hand to the right side of their body (crossing the midline) and crossing their right hand to the left side of their body (again crossing the midline). The children should be standing facing the wall with the midline of their body lined up with the brown line on the chart. The activity is to place their hands starting at the bottom and working their way up the chart on top of the corresponding hand print.
Brainworks Wall Station
The ABL Brainworks Wall Chart is a visual source of how our magnificent brain works. Our recommendation is that the chart is used as a resource for age-appropriate learning about the parts and functions of our brain. Children are very capable of understanding at a young age that our brain and body are connected and must be educated together. Our brain needs to develop as we grow, as does our body!
