Hello Tangle Fans,
As mentioned on our homepage, it's that time of year again when students go back to school and with it, all the work and stress from classes. Here at Tangle, it's our time to shine because our products have been proven to help ease minds while helping students think creatively and focus in the classroom.
The following is an exemplary testimonial of the classroom benefits of the Tangle:
"Many of the teachers were skeptical… but OMG the impact that tangles has had on my students at the high school students, both general ed and special ed students has been outstanding. ADHD students either love them or they drive them crazy. Those that love them have raised their scores on tests and quizzes. Our principal is ADHD and I gave him 4 tangles which as he is sitting at board meetings I have seen him playing with them on tv. I have a student with an emotional disability and he has to get it flattened up. When he is upset he grabs the tangle and works with it until they get it flat to the table. It helps that student get the frustration out of his system by flattening it. I have to roll it in my fingers when sitting in meetings now. The nurse in the building has asked for any extras to give to students that come down with emotional and in pain. The discipline principal gives them to that student that needs to get their frustrations out. I have one student that sits and takes it apart and puts it back together during class discussions. He is able to listen and work with his hands. Thank you soooo much. I have given Tangles my A in the grade book for tools that help every child no matter what the need. I will tell you that it really makes me mad when my students link my 20 class room set together and try to jump rope. I tell them now put them back together in the right amount or I will hunt you down. :O) I just want to thank you for touching the lives of both adults and children in the Franklin Community School Corporation. Your contribution has kept all of us out of trouble on one occasion or another. We treasure your contributions to our schools and we love the age appropriateness of the toy at any level." --Pam, Franklin Community School Corporation
