Bouncy Bands

My students need support in getting wiggles out that may cause them to be unfocused. My students need Bouncy Bands for chairs.

My Students

Many of my students enjoy their only meal of the day while at school. I regularly provide snacks for my students to help get them through the morning and/or afternoon. There are students I send home with snacks due to uncertainty of their next meal.

My students come to school with smiles on their faces, ready and eager to learn.

I try to instill a growth mindset in all of my students. They need to believe that they can meet goals and grow as students and as citizens.

My students give the best hugs and have hearts of gold. Please help support my students and classroom to make sure I can continue to provide my students with the best education possible. Thank you!

My Project

Bouncy Bands will help students refocus extra energy and wiggles to the lesson or learning task. Many students will use this energy in less-than-positive ways: talking to neighbors, getting up and moving around. This causes students to miss important parts of the lesson or miss important directions.

Bouncy Bands will be one tool I will use to assist students in making progress and being successful!

I try to keep students moving throughout the day, but there are times when students are sitting at their table. These Bouncy Bands will help students during those times. Please help me help my students!
