The ABC Pathways mat is designed to prepare our students brains to be ready for learning. The patented design works to relax, and refocus the brain, giving the child a chance to strengthen their self regulation skills, and reset to a peaceful state. As research shows, a child acting out, is a child calling out for help to cope with their current emotional state. Walking the ABC Pathways figure 8 pattern, creates a meditative rhythm that works to calm the brain waves and soothe the child. The movement is designed to help the child reset and refocus. ABC Pathways mat is used in Action Based Learning Labs, Classrooms, Hallways, and Libraries to give the student an opportunity to practice self regulation on the patented ABC Pathways Figure 8 symbol.
Movement Activities on the mat are endless, allow the student to learn the letters of the alphabet kinesthetically. Walking the ABC Pathways mat, the student is able to kinesthetically trace each letter of the alphabet, while strengthening gross motor skills, eye tracking, and cross lateralization - 3 foundations critical to learning.
#1 HIGHEST RATED Action Based Learning Tool! Includes:
There are muscles in our eyes that focus near and far, and muscles that allow us to track left to right, and up & down. Eye tracking exercises strengthen the muscles in our eyes to increase the length of time that the eyes can focus on reading.
Integrating Movement with Academics in the ABL Lab
To start, students will work only on balance by moving the marble through the figure 8 and waves on the board. As basic movements are mastered, progressions can be added to introduce academic content. Student's can work on teacher provided content with a partner, using flash cards, or from the smart board.
Rotational movement of the trunk, Lateral push and pull off legs while balancing, Slight knee bends and engaged core.
12 Foundations of Learning Readiness Benefits:
Balance, Eye Tracking / Visual Reaction, Peripheral Awareness / Body in Space

ABL Learning Assessment Platform Steps
836 ABL Learning Assessment Steps
[Pre K - 2nd Grade] ABL Assessment steps are used in the ABL Learning Lab at the early 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.
825 ABL Platform Steps
[3rd - 6th Grade] ABL Platform steps are used in the ABL Learning Lab for ages 3rd grade through 6th grade. The platform steps are triple the size and manufactured for heavy duty, high frequency use. One side of the stairs offers large platform steps for increased stride length, while the other side offers 6 smaller steps to challenge balance and spatial awareness. The sturdy solid wood frame is the perfect way for students to practice the 12 foundations of learning readiness. Dimensions: L82 x W35 x H30"

Animal Round-up Wall Station
Developing gross motor skills is an essential part of childhood. Animal Round-Up Motor activities get children moving and having fun, and support sensory regulation. Animal walks can be practiced anywhere, at any time, acting as an easy way for instructors to include proprioceptive and vestibular input within the child’s regular daytime activities.
Help give kids strength and endurance with our animal round-up poster! Performing different animal walks allow children to gain muscular strength and endurance while having fun. Each animal walk strengthens a different muscle group and allows for movements in different directions, different levels, and eventually different heights.
Includes Activity Guide
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.
This obstacle is used in the ABL Learning Lab to cross the midline. Crossing the midline coordinates both sides of the body and is an important developmental skill needed for many everyday tasks such as writing, and reading.

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.
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.
