My students are an enthusiastic, imaginative group of fourth graders. They are living in an inner-city community. Many are living in shelters. Some are English Language Learners and others have an Individualized Educational Plan. There are many students who have repeated a grade. Most face challenges both inside and outside of school on a daily basis. Despite these challenges, they love learning. They work hard every day in school and at home. They work with classmates to problem solve. They have goals and are working hard to achieve them.
It's hard to sit still for long periods of time. My students have a lot of energy that they need to work off. II am asking for 30 sets of bouncy bands for desks.
These bouncy bands allow my students to move around while staying in their seats.
Having these bands will help them stay focused while expending excess energy. Students will not disturb others, yet they will get their own needs met. It is often distracting to others when students need to get up often. These bouncy bands will allow students to stay in their seats and also move around. What a great idea. Sometimes we just need to move. They will bounce to learn.
