Bouncy Bands for Bouncy Students

Help me give my students ways to control their active bodies in class. I purchased bungee cords last year, but this version will prevent the distractions we had of the bungee cords flying off during class.

My Students

Our school has a diverse population of students from all socioeconomic backgrounds. We also have a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds, and we have a large population of students who were once refugees from other countries.

In our classes, we try to give students with all types of learning styles the environment that will best help them succeed.

Many of our students are active learners and they enjoy opportunities to move in the classroom. The more focused our students are, and the more engaged they are in the learning process, the more we are able to achieve in math and science.

My Project

Students are becoming more and more "active" in my classes. These bands are intended for that purpose and will not cause management issues like the cheaper bungee cords I attempted using in previous years. Bungee cords pop off throughout the day, especially if a student really enjoys tapping their feet. These will loop all the way around our desk legs, and I've verified they are the correct fit for the desks at our school.

Having a controlled way to focus their fidgets will help improve focus and cause fewer disruptions for the students around them.

Thank you for your support!
