have tile floors in my classroom. I am also on a raised foundation. When my students
pulled out or pushed in their chairs, my room was filled with a deafening sound.
I contacted the local Tennis Club and asked if I could have some FREE used tennis
balls. Three days later the tennis instructor delivered 120 FREE tennis balls
to my school. I promptly cut an X in each ball and placed them on the legs of
my students ’ chairs. I now have a much quieter classroom.
