The bouncy bands will help bring movement to the classroom. My students need the extra movement to be able to focus on their assignments ahead. When the body speeds up, the mind slows down. by having the students move more in class, they would be able to center their attention on the learning that is taking place. With more art in the classroom, the students would be able to strengthen their focus, develop their fine motor skills, and diversify the classroom. The art supplies would benefit my students by bringing their ideas to life. They would be able to express themselves through color and visual arts.
