Choices are endless with the letter board! Students can use the letter board to review spelling words, work with a partner to spell words (each partner spells the word one letter at a time taking turns), spell answers to questions, spell vocabulary words when given a definition, etc

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.

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.

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!
