Tactile Stepping Pathway (set of 8)
Work on balance while walking on the raised and rigid tactile pathway. Children learn their spatial awareness while balancing. Balancing activities challenge the brain to adjust its spatial orientation using the proprioceptive system. Balancing helps aid the brain to place words on a page, to read from left to right and to write patterns in sequence. Activities that involve balancing help the brain to anchor information and improve memory retrieval.
This high top portable teacher stool is a great addition to our standing desks. One-on-one teaching is an exceptionally effective approach to instruction customized to the needs of the student. Adding our Teacher Stool will allow for one-on-one teaching in your classroom!

About the Author
Stacey is an Action Based Learning Certified Trainer, with the first kinesthetic classroom in the nation. Her goal is to change today's classroom into one that incorporates movement to enhance learning for all students. She will make this happen by donating 10% of the profits from this book for other classrooms. Fifth-grade math and science teacher by day, she is a presenter and shares her passion for kinesthetic learning with others during the summer. Stacey was nominated for the Mark Cobb Award for Change in 2014 and was Pinckney Elementary Teacher of the Year 2013. A self-professed nerd, she loves taking college classes and has earned her Masters+30. Considering the fact Stacey was the stereotypical daydreamer in class makes this quite an accomplishment for someone who didn't think they were smart enough to be a teacher. When she is not talking about kinesthetic learning, you can find her running (slowly) or riding bikes (faster) with her husband. Her love language is quality time and there is no time better spent than with her family, eating amazing dinners with a glass of grape or two.
