Bouncy Bands®

Scott Ertl is an elementary school counselor in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He created Bouncy Bands to help students at his own school to have a way to move when they worked so they wouldn't have to stay trapped at their desks for up to 6 hours a day. Scott shares resources and ideas with other educators on his national ElementarySchoolCounselor.org blog. 

Benefits of Bouncy Bands: 

  • Quiet and don't distract others
  • Students can stay focused and on task better for class work and tests
  • Students stay calmer when they can relieve their anxiety while they work
  • Teachers notice significant improvements with children who need to release extra energy from anxiety, hyperactivity and/or frustrations from having learning disabilities
  • Students love being able to move instead of having to sit still for 6 hours a day
