Kneel N Spin Kinesthetic Desks [K-2nd Grade]

ABL manufactures classroom furniture designed to put the student’s brain into its most optimal learning state. All of our educational equipment has been created with neuroscience best practices in mind, which results in improved student performance, enhanced effectiveness of curricula, and children’s energy channeled toward learning.

ABL active learning and sensory equipment provides a non-distracting, silent way to allow children to move, fidget, wake their brains up and stay engaged and focused in the classroom. This makes it easy for schools to accommodate all learners, and keep the focus on serving the needs of the whole child. Action Based Learning aligns with the CDC framework for addressing health in schools, The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child, or WSCC model.

Benefits:

  • Increases student mood and engagement in the classroom
  • Improves student performance at school
  • Enhances effectiveness of all curricula  
  • Channels student’s energy toward learning

Brain Based Movement:

Promotes low intensity steady state movement (LISS), crossing the midline, optimizes blood flow and oxygen to the brain, & activates BDNF, coined "Miracle Gro" for the brain by Dr. John Ratey. BDNF activates the brain in the process known as neurogenesis- the growth of new brain cells. 

Uses:

CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION - Children with the spin board under their desk can work their legs in a motion similar to a core machine, while participating in classroom discussion, or doing their classwork. Desk is user powered, making movement optional! Although rare, students not interested in moving, have the option to relax and listen in class! 

PARTNER WORK - While one child spins, their partner stands on a balance board on the opposite side of the kneel n spin desk.

ADD ACADEMICS - Teachers use the twisting movement to engage students in countless activities! For example: Students answer questions during instruction by either holding the spin board still, spinning left, spinning right, or side to side. 

MORNING WAKE UP - Start the morning off right with a brain booster! Have students warm-up their brains with a Walk & Talk session (suggested classroom activities provided by authors Shoecraft, Lengel, & Moize in ABL Books & Manuals)

GO FULLY KINESTHETIC! - Outfit an entire classroom with multi-person kneel n spin desks, and various movement stations (video below). Research indicates variety is KEY when implementing alternative seating and kinesthetic desks into an active classroom

OR START SMALL - Start with 1 single kneel n spin desk into your classroom & implement rotation schedule for all students to benefit from the movement!
