I teach kindergarten at a north central Florida Title 1 school located in a very rural area where the majority of the students are ESOL or impoverished. My students all come from many different and often difficult situations. Most of my students have never been exposed to a school setting or technology. Working with them has been challenging but humbling.
I always let all of my students know how capable and smart they are as well as the importance of collaborating.
I may not be able to control their home environment, however, I can control their classroom experience by continuing to provide them with many creative and meaningful learning experiences. My students are a diverse group of young children who come to school everyday ready to embrace learning and learning to embrace differences.
Active students are more productive and spend more time on task when they can move. My young students need Bouncy desk bands to help them focus and stay on task. Bouncy Bands are quiet, and they do not distract other students.
Students who feel anxious when working will enjoy being able to stretch their legs to release their anxiety while they work.
These bands encourage active sitting as well as relieve excess energy, stress, and anxiety. It is especially great for those students diagnosed with ASD or ADHD. I am looking forward to getting this wonderful tool for my class!
