Bouncing Our Way to Concentration!

My students need a way to help them concentrate and still get their wiggles out without disrupting others in the classroom.

My Students

Hello! I teach a group of 24 third grade students. My students come from many different economic backgrounds and are very motivated to learn. This group of students is very diverse in their learning levels in math and reading. No matter what the level, they are always trying to excel in all that they do.

My students are so full of life and personality.

Everyday is full of new educational opportunities and realizations for them. They are a great group of learners and I know they will do great things in their future!

My Project

Many of my students are constantly wiggling and moving around in their seats. Some just can not seem to stay in their seats because they need some form of movement to help them concentrate. I have looked for various solutions to this situation and bouncy seat bands seem to be the best option.

These bouncy bands will help my students move when they need to without being a distraction to other students.

They will be able to move and wiggle whenever they want without disrupting their neighbors around them and then still be able to complete their work. It is a matter of providing movement in a way that is not distracting to others, and I believe these bouncy bands are the key to this issue.
