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.
Weight: 6lbs Dimensions: 22.2 x 18 x 6 Target Age Group: 1st Grade -12th Grade
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
The Cross Lateralization Station focuses on Crossing the Midline and allows for a variety of progressions students can do as they strengthen this critical foundation to learning!
Package includes a set of 4 over/underbars, and commercial padded Roll and Crawl Mat. Progressions begin with the mat only. Students navigate through the activities provided in the Action Based Learning Lab Manual.
2 Bars are 50in x12in (9lbs/ea) & 2 Bars 50" x 16"(10lbs/ea)
Pattern Jumping Mat
The Patterned Jumping Mat is a smaller, portable version of the patterned walking mat. The patented design helps students make connections in the brain considered critical to learning! Each jumping pattern is a series of progressions that prepares the brain by working on critical foundation skills. Students are actively engaging in proprioception, low level balance challenges and helping their brain and body synchronize to understand where they are in space. An instructional manual is included.
The Patterned Jumping Mat is made of G-floor material.
Indoor and Outdoor? YES
Dimension: 60in x 17in
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.
ABL Handheld Eye Tracker
The ABL Eye Tracker is a commercial grade teaching tool for students to help them learn and practice letter and number identification, sequencing and visual tracking skills in a fun, hands-on way!
The ABC PATHWAYS TM pattern is designed to allow the student to use the marble to trace each letter of the alphabet, while simultaneously improving visual tracing skills. Visual Tracing is a critical foundation related to a child's ability to read and write words from left to right on the page.

BRAIN BODY BENEFITS: When information moves from left to right and front to back in the brain, it crosses midlines which integrates the brain hemispheres and aids the brain in organizing information. Movements completed on the Cross Country Skier, that cross the midline, enlist more parts of the brain for well-developed attention systems. Using both sides of the body together is critical to development and assists children in activities such as putting on shoes, writing and cutting. In sum, the deluxe skier promotes the coordination and communication of the left and right hemispheres of the brain!

Cardio Kids Youth Fitness Elliptical
CARDIO KIDS YOUTH ELLIPTICAL
This popular youth sized elliptical trainer works the entire body and has been carefully designed to supply additional balance for fast growing bodies and motivational, easy to use electronics that include calories, heart rate, speed, time and distance.
Engage in a range of slow to fast paced, rhythmic movements with this non impact conditioning! Perform a full body movement via smooth gliding motion of both upper and lower extremities. Option to isolate lower body and position hands on built in pulse sensors. Option to reverse stride, activating different muscle groups.
Exercise benefits the brain by changing the brain at a molecular level. Since the brain does not produce its own fuel, it relies on cardiovascular exercise to pump oxygenated blood to the brain to use as fuel. When blood travels to the body/brain at greater rates it feeds the brain the needed nutrients of oxygen and glucose. Glucose is brain fuel for the brain just as gasoline is fuel for a car!
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.

An instructional manual is included.
The Patterned Walking Mat is made of G-floor material. Can be used indoors/outdoor.
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.
