Goal

With all this testing, students need a little wiggle room. My goal is to provide students with a physical outlet while working so that their active bodies can move while their growing minds are at work.  

 

What will be done with my students

Student who have difficulty remaining in their seats, rocking in their chairs, or paying attention will be provided with a Bouncy Band to help give them a different outlet for their restlessness.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students who otherwise may be seen as "difficult" or a "problem" will be given an outlet so that they can focus during instruction. Already, I have seen two students benefit from Bouncy bands that I acquired from a bicycle shop. Students who before the bands could not focus, now bounce while they work and listen at the same time.  

 

Budget Narrative

These bands will make a world of difference in my classroom. Students who are often distracted will be able to focus more intently throughout the day. I believe that they will feel their unique needs have been met. With all this testing, students need a little wiggle room.
