USE AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR SET-UP
This is a unique material designed for heavy duty, high frequency use.
The material is designed to keep the shape it was stored in, and will become flexible with heat. Upon unboxing, unroll the mat and lie flat (preferably outside) in the sun or a warm environment. As the mat heats, the material will become flexibile and bend easily in to the preferred state, flat. Remember, whatever shape the mat cools off in, is the shape it will keep! Ensure your mat is lying completely flat as it is cooling off, in order to keep the crisp flat shape.

Who are these carts for?
Recommended for those with or without an ABL Lab! Also, excellent for those who are already operating an existing ABL Lab within their school and looking to bring ABL beyond the lab. The concepts practiced using the Math and Reading carts are a direct extension of the work students do in the lab to support purposeful movement strategies and anchor learning. The equipment is versatile to accommodate various elementary grade levels (K-5), and allow students of varying capabilities to practice the 12 Foundations of Learning Readiness.
Why are purposeful movement activities important?
Neuroscience shows the relationship between the brain and body plays a critical role in the child's overall development and ability to learn. Research shows, practicing specific movements, can strengthen these connections and improve reading, writing, memory tasks, & allow children to absorb & retain information more efficiently.
What types of purpose movement activities are critical to learning?
There are 12 critical areas necessary for a child to develop in order to achieve their full academic potential. These are called the 12 Foundations of Learning Readiness:
1- Crossing the Midline - Cross Lateralization 2- Body in Space - Vestibular/Proprioception 3- Balance - Spatial Orientation 4- Visual Development - Encoding Symbols 5- Rhythm - Beat Awareness and Beat Competency 6- Tactile Learning- Sensory Motor and Fine Motor Skills 7- Motor Skills - Locomotor and Nonlocomotor Skills 8- Eye/Hand Eye/Foot Coordination - Manipulative Skills 9- Physical Fitness- Strength and Flexibility 10- Cardiovascular Fitness- Aerobic 11- Problem Solving: Embodied Cognition 12- Self Management: Mindfulness and Self-Awareness
