Claremore teachers invent a busy bar to help students focus in classroom.


Innovative teachers at Claremore's Roosa Elementary School invented swinging footrests to attach to student desks to keep fidgety children focused. The children love the busy bars that Deanna Smith and Marsha Kendrick made. “Movement is such a key point of being able to learn,” Deanna says.
