Drive Thru Menus: Attention and Strength

Price: $7.50-$45.95

The Drive Thru Menu Attention and Strength Exercises provide teachers and parents with a flexible program for students, organizing sensory input and upper body strength building. Selecting and participating in the exercises prior to academic tasks allow children to perform successfully. As students become familiar with the exercises, they discover what works for them and then choose the exercises that help them maintain alertness and motor skills.

The Drive Thru Menu Exercises  Program is for use with students in any elementary school classroom or in the home and can be introduced by a teacher, a parent or a therapist. They appeal to children because they are easy to learn, easy to do and best of all: they are fun! Each exercise is designed to help children get the sensory input or muscular work they need to accomplish their daily tasks in the classroom.

The Attention Menu exercises help students who have a hard time paying attention, settling down, waiting in line, or staying focused while working independently.

The Strength Menu exercises help students who have poor pencil grip, illegible handwriting, difficulty opening packages, using tools such as scissors, paper clips, staplers, etc.
