Bouncy Bands Channel Energy Into Learning

My students need a class set of Bouncy Bands so that they can channel all of their energy into learning.

My Students

My 6th grade scholars are a pivotal point in their academic careers. In their first year of middle school, they feel extremely adult and are simultaneously realizing how much they still have to learn.

We already know that they are capable of greatness.

Time will tell where exactly they will make their mark. My job right now is to equip them with as many tools as possible for future success. Help me prepare these sixth graders to tackle the world!

My Project

Bouncy Bands, like giant rubber bands, can be affixed to the legs of student desks. These strong bands are the perfect way for students to release excess energy during instruction, without disturbing anyone else in the room. Small feet can bounce on the bands, channeling "the wiggles," and allowing students to focus on the task at hand.

Bouncy Bands exponentially increase students' ability to pay attention and learn.

Whether we are diving into a Math lesson, focusing on reading remediation, or walking through a character building session, Bouncy Bounds will help ensure that energy is directed appropriately. With a simple tool like this, we increase their potential for extraordinary learning.
