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.
Action Based LearningSensory Hallway Setshelp students focus by encouraging them to be active on their way to class, using activity maps and colorful pathways throughout the hallways.
ABL Sensory Hallway Sets are considered one of the most cost effective and efficient ways to impact every child through movement. Reach more students, and allow Action Based Learning strategies to be practiced daily. Hallway graphics are designed to allow educators to customize the ABL Sensory pathto fit all spaces, and varying grade levels. Each set allows students to practice the critical foundations necessary to prepare the brain to learn.
These are 100+ piece commercial grade decal sets that can be placed throughout your school, on the floors and also the walls to create a play/learning environment outside of the classroom! Each set allows plenty of options for moving through the 12 Foundations and many more elements to be creative and create a fun learning environment.
The rocking turtle shell is designed with safety and fun in mind! The bottom has a smooth curve to prevent children from getting hurt when they rock from side to side.A perfect addition to any classroom, lab, or even for home use! Kids love this bright colored shell and they can play with the turtle shell multiple ways.
Enhance the development of vestibular balance.
Improve motor coordination.
Assist children to practice the control of stability.

Boomerboard activities can be incorporated with academics to teach and review lessons, increase classroom engagement, or use throughout the day to transition, brain boosters, or make learning fun with academic games!Activities are endless! Strategies are teacher friendly, time efficient, and make learning fun! A fun tool designed to introduce purposeful movement into the classroom,Students experience both the physical and neurological benefits of jumping, along with 50+ additional exercises to aid in balance, rhythm, core strength, spatial awareness, endurance, and can be used to work on all 12 foundations of learning readiness. The silent, non-distracting motion allows for a reprieve from the traditional classroom setting. Research shows that purposeful movement prepares the brain to learn, and creates an optimal environment for students.

By understanding the link between movement and math, ABL is able to apply this research to the classroom to provide student's an advantage in math. These are simple, proven methods delivered in a 1 page format for the educator to easily implement and help students anchor math concepts.
Each lesson uses purposeful movement layered with mathematics to ..
+ To reinforce math concepts & anchor learning in the classroom
+ To prepare the brain for learning new math concepts
+ To prepare the brain for testing
The lessons are designed to be paired with existing curriculum standards, and cover the following math concepts:

The stepper desk is a resistance based movement which allows the body weight of the individual student to switch from left to right. The controlled, deliberate motions create an outlet for students, while still allowing them to focus and engage in the classroom. Recommended for Middle School & High School Students.
