Action Based Learning Lab
Students in grades 3-5 come to the Action Based Learning Lab (ABLL). The Action Based Learning™ Lab is a series of progressions and stations, each designed to prepare the brain for input and processing. They learn the Science curriculum as they exercise. Students in grades k-2 come to the gym in the afternoons to learn sensory components of balance, coordination, spatial awareness, directionality, and visual literacy which are developed as the child rolls, creeps, crawls, spins, twirls, bounces, balances, walks, jumps, juggles, and supports his/her own weight in space. 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.
