Brain Body Connection
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 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.
#1 HIGHEST RATED Action Based Learning Tool! Includes:
Our Ele-Fun eye tracker station helps to increase visual stamina for test taking. There are muscles in our eyes that focus near and far and muscles that allow us to track left to right and up and down. These muscles should be strengthened in the same way as our arm muscles. Eye tracking exercises strengthen the muscles in our eyes to increase the length of time that eyes can focus on reading.
Numeracy Noggin Wall Station
815 Numeracy Noggin Academic Wall Mount
Engage student in whole brain learning by teaching math concepts using Action Based Learning strategies. This station is designed to reinforce and anchor learning using purposeful movement math activities.
The Numeracy Noggin is an easy to implement tool that allows for hundreds of action based learning activities inside the classroom or lab. Students can swat, clap, trace, tap, or toss a beanbag while problem solving. Add progressions using partners, or add a balance component below the station to allow varying degrees of challenge. Activities are designed to accommodates learners at all levels. Activity guide includes unlimited ideas for skip counting activities, while teaching children to identify numbers and patterns, and strengthen problem solving skills.
Model Number: 815
Includes Activity Guide w/ practical application to the classroom or lab
Allows for 25+ progressions allowing varying degrees of challenge to accommodate all learners
Dimensions: 8 FT L x 4 FT W
Jumbo 8ft commercial grade wall mount designed for high frequency use
Odd, Even, Factors, Greater than, Less than, Multiples, Factors
PRIMARY FOUNDATION: Problem Solving
SPELLING: ABL Handheld Eye Tracker
The ABL Eye Tracker is a commercial grade teaching tool for students to help them with letter learning and spelling practice, 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.
Letter Learning Wall Station
Action Based Learning Letter Learning Wall Station
Choices are endless with the letter learning wall station! Students can use the kinesthetic letter board to review spelling words, work with a partner to spell words (each partner spells the word one letter at a time taking turns), spell answers to questions, spell vocabulary words when given a definition, etc
These concepts aid the brain in encoding the stroke of each symbol of letters and numbers, letter recognition, letter formation, following words from left to right, focusing on reading for longer periods of time.
Kinesthetic Shape Tracers
Kinesthetic learning has never been so fun! Trace the shapes with the right finger then the left. Have the student follow the finger with their eyes and verbalize what they are tracing.This concept aids the brain in encoding the stroke of each symbol of letters and numbers, following words from left to right and focusing on reading for long periods. Visual tracking helps to increase visual stamina for test taking!
