Carts include age appropriate equipment and activities, designed to assist the educator in teaching and meeting standard curriculum requirements.
All ABL equipment and support materials included on the cart are geared for accommodating curriculum in: Math, ELAR, Social Studies, and Science.
Action Based Learning Classroom carts include
ABL Carts include support materials, Academic Charts, Student and Teacher Cue Cards, Activity Guides, ABL Academic Mats, and ABL accessories and equipment that can be quickly pulled off the cart and used in the hallways, classroom & common areas
How do the carts function at the middle and high school level?
- This is not a program, but a teaching tool for educators, and learning tool for students.
- Equipment allows teachers to integrate academics with physical movements to help students anchor learning.
- Educators can also use the cart activities without academics, for quick purposeful movement activities that prepare the brain to learn throughout the day!
- Portability means cart can be shared between classrooms, and adapted to fit various content areas within the subject.
Why are purposeful movement activities important?
Neuroscience shows the relationship between the brain and body plays a critical role in the student'sability to learn. Research shows, practicing specific movements, can strengthen these connections and improve reading, writing, memory tasks, & allow students to absorb & retain information more efficiently.
ABL Classroom carts are a budget friendly and efficient way to implement Action Based Learning Strategies to reach more students to increase activity throughout the school day and create an active school culture.
What types of purpose movement activities are critical to learning?
There are 12 critical areas necessary for a student to develop in order to achieve their full academic potential. These are called the 12 Foundations of Learning Readiness:
1- Crossing the Midline - Cross Lateralization
2- Body in Space - Vestibular/Proprioception
3- Balance - Spatial Orientation
4- Visual Development - Encoding Symbols
5- Rhythm - Beat Awareness and Beat Competency
6- Tactile Learning- Sensory Motor and Fine Motor Skills
7- Motor Skills - Locomotor and Nonlocomotor Skills
