A session typically starts off with brain gym, as it achieves integration of the left and right brain hemispheres. Thereafter, we practice flash cards and speed writing. The kids move about, on the carpet, on their feet, then we'll continually use the big soroban to familiarize them with the concept. Practicing finger excercises on the soroban will start to refine motor skills. This moves learning from the abstract to the concrete and helps them to grasp the notions of adding and subtracting, after which they will be able to step-up the numbers with which they are dealing.
