How often do students finish poorly due to weak focus or attention skills?HIT HERE FOR VIDEO DESCRIPTION OF THIS PRODUCT
Awaken brains to focus!
To start a new term without focus skills is like starting a swim without buoyancy. Many students drown in their attempts to learn, due to undeveloped focus skills. Luckily their awesome brains come equipped to focus well and to learn at the peaks!
Students love to choose tasks from a list of ten key focus areas
, and to record their real life benefits in teams and in individual assignments.
Your students will see how to fade past learning problems
– by taking a new focus to apply lesson facts.

At the completion of each task students report specific progress observed,
in charts provided. In this way - they also learn to use and apply focus beyond lessons or texts in any one class. They grow focus benefits for learning any new topics. How so?
Students will discover research that shows how to win more, simply by refocusing past problem areas.
They will learn to choose a finer focus based on what they hope to gain.
They will be challenged to consider the possibility
“What if you could stretch poor attention spans into fine focused results with benefits for yourself and others in every class?”
These tasks are especially designed to help students work with - rather than against their brains.
For instance, students will experience ways to use this focus to fade force to improve additional areas of their day, where they feel they have failed in past.
Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials
will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.
Do follow my TpT site
and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.
