ABL Mathematics / Telephone Mat
The Action Based Learning™ Lab is so unique that some of the equipment is patented. The ABL Mathematics / Telephone Mat comprises one of the Stations and is used to help encode the symbols of the alphabet, practice letter sounds, recognize numbers, and help teach basic math solutions. Physical Education standards include spatial awareness, motor skill development, eye-hand and eye foot coordination, upper and lower body strength, cardiovascular strength and endurance, rhythm competency, and social interaction. Other stations have common equipment found in most schools: bean bags, scooter boards, balls, hula hoops, juggling scarves, streamers, gym mats, monkey bars, and chin up bars.
The Action Based Learning™ Lab is a series of progressions and stations, each designed to prepare the brain for input and processing. Sensory components of balance, coordination, spatial awareness, directionality, and visual literacy are developed as the child rolls, creeps, crawls, spins, twirls, bounces, balances, walks, jumps, juggles, and supports his/her own weight in space. Levels of physical fitness are increased and academic concepts are reinforced. As students move from station to station with a partner or partners, their self awareness, self esteem, and social skills are enhanced. Each progression and station allows the student to experience challenge, feedback, and physical activity, three components that are necessary for optimal brain function.
The unique, innovative Action Based Learning™ Lab is research-based, brain and body compatible, kid-friendly, teacher-friendly, and time efficient.
