My active students need Bouncy Bands to stay in their seats and focused on their work. The ability to move while working increases the time they are on task. When they have more time on task, they have more success which build self confidence. Many of my students, each year, have Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder. They need to move as they learn. With Bouncy Bands they can meet their need to move while working without disrupting other students' learning. Also the movement allowed by these bands added to the chairs we are already using allows them to sooth away anxiety and frustration. I have been using a home made version of Bouncy Bands for the last two years. The chairs with the added bungee straps, are the chairs most of my students choose first. The bands I have been using have become worn out. They also often get caught on students shoestrings. Having a more solidly constructed band would be a huge improvement and greatly benefit my students learning.
