Action Based Learning in Your Classroom

Action Based Learning (ABL) is based on the brain research that strongly supports the link between movement and learning. Presenters will introduce research that supports the link of movement and physical activity to increased academic performance, as well as a brief description and explanation of physical and chemical actions that happen prior to and during learning.
Participants will see examples of what Action Based Learning looks like, including:
-Kinesthetic furniture in the classrooms - Providing different seating options that allow more movement for students.
-Action Based Learning labs - Physical movement is layered with academic practice to increase academic success and positive behaviors in the classroom.
-Brain boosters throughout the school day - Research shows that continuous sitting makes the brain sleepy, and it is not as prepared to learn.
-Morning activity - Use movement to stimulate the brains and get students ready for learning.

Train Like A Navy SEAL with SEL

Self regulation is growing in importance for our students to have as they live through life day to day. It's also in higher demand by employers as one of the top job skills. Attend this session, and you will leave equipped with five strategies that are easy to implement, do not take much time away from your curriculum, or can be incorporated into your curriculum, and will benefit teachers as well! Teach kinders? Gotcha covered! Teach seniors? No problem! All of the five strategies work for all levels! Self regulation here we come!
