Wiggle & Work

Help me give my students Bouncy bands to allow their legs to wiggle!

My Students

My students are active 8 year olds who are required to spend more time than I would like sitting at their desks. They are motivated and hardworking but could use some wiggle-release help. Many of my students will choose to stand and work at their desks but that makes it difficult for others to see. Hopefully the Bouncybands will alleviate this problem and all of the students will benefit from the ability to wiggle, bounce, and sit comfortably while working.

My Project

These simple Bouncybands provide the students the ability to move and wiggle while they are required to stay seated at their desks for long periods of time. They are quiet, effective, and more affordable than purchasing new seating. I have looked into purchasing the wiggle stools, standing desks, as well as other educational seating but they are cost prohibitive and may cause discontent among the students when they don’t get to sit at the “fun” desk. These Bouncybands are affordable enough that all of the students will be able to have one at their desk. We truly appreciate any help. Thank you.
