Have You Heard About Bouncy Bands?

Teachers are always looking for A.N.Y.T.H.I.N.G. to help all kids, but especially for those who might need a little extra something something to help them focus. You've read my earlier post about flexible seating {click HERE if you missed it} and some ideas for implementation in your classroom. 

Here's another idea that I KNOW works.


When I was a principal, several teachers provided Bouncy Bands for students who needed that extra little motion to keep them focused on their work.

My daughter  is using them in her classroom this year. Although she thought she had pinpointed the students who would NEED to use them, she was surprised at the kids who ASKED to use them.
One kiddo said he didn't see how that would help him focus, but he's a regular user now.




For those times when they are working at their seats, just that little elastic band helps keep them focused and paying attention to their work.

Bouncy Bands are easy to install and surprisingly quiet. There are two different types--one for desks and one for chairs. If you'd like to give them a try, visit the website by clicking HERE. See the research behind the bands, get info on how to apply for financial help through Donors Choose, and read testimonials from users. If you order by September 30, you can receive  TEN PERCENT OFF your order if you use the code POTPOURRI.

It's worth the time checking the website out. Even if you don't need a classroom set, I really don't think you will regret ordering a few Bouncy Bands for those students you know need them. Don't be surprised, though, if you don't have to make a sign up sheet to rotate them through ALL your students, just like my daughter did.
