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.

Gimkit Tag Domination

  Gimkit came out with a new mode called Tag: Domination.  This is currently one of my students favorite modes(fishtopia is the other).  This game is similar to physical tag.  Students are split into 2 teams.  To earn energy to run and get upgrades, students must correctly answer questions.  The time to tag and run away alternate and students can see which one they are in on the top left of the screen.  At the end, the team with the most tag win.
