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.

Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template

  This template is set for 3 sets of answers.  I have the answers that are currently set, you will need to reformat them to use with your content.   Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template Be on the lookout for this activity given 2 ordered pairs and asking for slope, y-intercept, and the equation of a line.  I'm also formatting this for converting between percents, decimals, and fractions.  If you want to reformat it before I post the above activities here is how. 

Long Division in Google Docs

  I was making a long division worksheet for my students in Google Docs when I realized that it wasn't under equations. Here's how to insert it.  This does not look very pretty so I have another video on how I do it in Google Sheets which takes longer but looks nicer. 

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
