Description (10 points)

There are students in every classroom who benefit from being able to move while learning.  Often, this is seen in tapping feet which can be distracting to other students as it can be noisy, and cause desks to move.  This grant would allow us to buy fidget bands that attach to chairs. This allows students who benefit from moving while learning to bounce their feet on the band which has been shown to increase focus while not impacting their neighbor.
