Bouncy Bands to Accommodate Students

 



Students need to move and be active so how can you best accommodate with all the COVID restrictions? Bouncy bands may be the solution.


At times, flexible seating isn’t an option so I looked for other ways to help my students who need to move.  I tried three different bouncy bands and this one is the winner. The bands slip on the students seats, they are quiet, and the students can have at it.  These have been so helpful to students who need to shake their legs or tap their feet. Plus, these are quiet and didn't cause distractions. I was hesitant at first because of the cost but they are well worth it. 


Since they are so expensive I would suggest using DonorsChoose or a grant to get funding for them. I started with a few to help my students with disabilities and/or ADHD and found that almost all the students wanted them. I was able to get a large amount of flexible seating options by using DonorsChoose. If you have any questions comment below or reach out.

Pixel Art with Math Problems

    A pixel art activity provides instant feedback and some excitement.  My students enjoy doing these because they can see right away if they are doing the work correct and they also like to race to figure out the picture first.    Integer Operations Add/Subtract Pixel Art This is an online activity where students complete addition and subtraction of integers. The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio

Pixel Art Activities

    If you are looking for students to practice multiple concepts at once with instant feedback these 2 activities would be great. The first activity hast students write the equation of a line given 2 points.  They start by finding the slope, then the y-intercept, and finally writing the equation.  Each piece along the way will color the picture if they are correct.  I like this instant feedback because my student tend to get frustrated if they do all the work and then when I check it we realize their slope was wrong so they have to start at the beginning again. The second activity is on percent, decimals, and fractions.  This activity requires students to convert between the 3 along with making the fractions mixed numbers.  This is great for middle school classes to practice.  My students tend to struggle with which way to move the decimal so this instant feedback helps them check their answers as they go.   Writing Equations of a Line - Baby Yoda Pixel Art Percent, Decimal, Fraction
