"I can sit without getting bored and fidgeting." This is what a student told me the first day I put a Bouncy Band on his desk. This student had been struggling to focus on his daily classwork for a while. When his parents and I decided to try a Bouncy Band, we were hopeful that it would help with his focus. After one day, I am convinced this is going to help him focus for days to come. Upon seeing the Bouncy Band on one student's desk, the others got excited about the idea of the band and they all want one for their desk. It is my hope to be able to get Bouncy Bands for all the students in my classroom.
By allowing students to Bounce Through the Day, these Bouncy Bands will encourage students to focus more on classwork and less on moving around the room. I have seen these Bands work. They are amazing! These bands give students permission to wiggle and move while sitting in their seats and getting their classwork completed.
While using the Bouncy Band, one of my students went from being loud, disruptive, and off task to being very focused and getting his classwork completed.
This came after trying several other ideas to get his behavior under control. We are very pleased with the results we are seeing after just a short time with the Bouncy Bands.
I am requesting the Bouncy Bands, so that all students in my class will have the opportunity to Bounce Through the Day into more focused classwork.
