It's OK to wiggle while you work!
Bouncy Bands help students release their extra energy, anxiety and stress by quietly bouncing their feet and stretching their legs while they work at their desk or chair. I found sitting with my feet on the Bouncy Bands released the pressure in my lower back.
Bouncy Bands are for adults too!
I had the pleasure of meeting Scott Ertl creator and founder of Bouncy Bands last week at EDexpo 2016. Scott is an elementary school counselor in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and he created Bouncy Bands to help students at his own school have a way to move when they worked so they wouldn't have to stay trapped at their desks for 5-6 hours a day. He wanted to help them be able to stretch their legs, bounce their feet and prop up their feet instead of having them dangle all day from their chair.
Scott started sharing Bouncy Bands at conferences and presentations where he worked with educators on a variety of topics (Progress Cards, Parent-Child Retreats, Playshops, and Read and Ride). Then he decided to start making Bouncy Bands available to other Teachers and for home/office use.
Bouncy Bands orders started coming from around the nation for individual students, classes, grade levels, and whole schools! After numerous requests to create a Bouncy Band that would work for chairs, he developed the latest version that keeps the support pipes securely attached to the chair legs.
Scott gratefully shares his products with children and adults while promoting active learning with appropriate ways to release anxiety, energy, boredom, and frustration--without getting in trouble. Making learning fun for children.
Teachers notice that students have improved performance on class work and tests since students can stay focused longer and they feel calmer -- without distracting others. Students love being able to move instead of having to sit still at their desk for 5 - 6 hours every day.
Wiggle away with Bouncy Bands!
