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.

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.

Action Based Learning Sensory Hallway Sets help 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 path to 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.
Why Action Based Learning Hallway Sets?
Quality and Quantity: ABL Hallway sets are the highest quality sets on the market, designed for high traffic environments. All hallway sets are manufactured using commercial grade vinyl on commercial printers. Sticker Size is up to 2x larger than the standard sensory path and quantity of stickers in each set ranges between 75 to 120 stickers per set! This is double the size of standard hallway sets.
How are these adhered to the floors? Are they permanent?
They are adhesive stickers. Once you place them where you like them in the hallway, we recommend waxing over to maintain their structure throughout the year. If you decide you do not want them one day down the road they can be removed when the floors are stripped. If you decide to keep them, the maintenance can do a light strip and re-wax (which is typically how they do all of the floors each year).
