Learners And Movers

Help me give my students a way to get out their excess energy and stay focused on learning.

My Students

My students are bright, energetic third graders. My students are from a low socio-economic area and almost all of my students participate in the free lunch program. They are full of energy and would benefit from a flexible seating plan in our classroom. It would be put to great use in my classroom. The students would have a variety of options available instead of just the traditional student desk and chair. This would support learning because my students would be given more options to learn comfortably.

My Project

My students need this resource to help them remain focused during instruction. Movement has shown to help students focus. These bands will help my students move while learning. I have several students who have been diagnosed with ADHD and this resource would greatly benefit not only those students but all my students. The children will be able to bounce their feet and legs while remaining seated at their desk. This would allow them to work and get energy out as needed. I think this would help the children tremendously in the classroom. It is impossible for most students to remain still during instruction.
