Movement Strategies: Using Stations for Learning

Students move through a visual rotation schedule while working on various literacy activities.  Stations provide movement breaks and brain breaks for the students.  This is especially helpful for students with attention and focus issues. The stations provide a sense of accomplishment via independent work, which is an important confidence boost for students with learning differences.

Please Note: There are Occupational Therapy (OT) Tips throughout this presentation.  They demonstrate devices and techniques. If one believes that observed behaviors could benefit from these devices or techniques, please consult with the school’s OT or have the child’s parents obtain an OT recommendation from a pediatrician prior to incorporating these ideas.

Additional items to note when viewing:

  • Visual Schedule on the board
  • Use of a timer

Occupational therapy (OT) devices

  • Hand fidgets
  • Chewing gum
