My students need 6 bouncy bands and 2 stools for our standing desk!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach third grade in a very rural district. I have students that range from Kindergarten level to 8th grade all in one classroom. Students in my classroom are continuously working in small group and/or on a computer. I have 21 students and I am constantly transitioning from whole group instruction to individualized, small group instruction. I want students to always be engaged in whatever area I am teaching. When students are excited to learn, it's a success in my class!
The elastic bands will provide a quiet, non-disruptive way for my students to release energy. They will also help to relieve anxiety and stress and allow my active students to stay on task and be more productive, since the students can stretch and move while being seated. The bands attach to the legs of their chair, allowing a place for them to rest their feet.
These will help my high energy learners to fidget without distracting others.
These bands will also help to increase students learning time and, in return, their self esteem. The stools will be used for our standing desk. My students really enjoy the standing desk, but have asked for a stool when they get tired.
