These are some of the pictures I took while in Nashville. Thank god for a tripod and a 10 second timer! :)
Some students have trouble staying focused within the classroom. Especially those with auditory processing disorder. The extra noise that exists within the classroom is distracting to them. There are also students that are hyper active, and require constant movement. In my classroom (resource room), I put elastic bands around the bottom of the chairs of these students. It allowed them to have the movement that they require to stay focused and decreases the distractions of others. Since then, these students require less movement breaks because they are already moving in their seats. This is a cheap and an affective way to assist students with hyperactivity in a variety of settings. The kids enjoy using the elastic bands, and even the students who do not need this accommodation enjoy utilizing it.
