Movement is natural, especially for seven and eight-year-olds. Yet, they often get in trouble for fidgeting in class. For some, concentration comes easier when they can move their bodies. I am requesting Hokki stools which will give students the opportunity to complete their reading and writing work, without the added burden of constantly fighting their natural tendency to wiggle. Minds and little bodies tire easily from having to sit still for too long. This is even more so if feet are dangling. Hokki Stools allow students to focus on learning rather than having to remember to sit still. Stools of different heights offer the smaller kids the same opportunity to plant their feet while they work. My desire is to provide those students that require more opportunities to "get their wiggles out" within the classroom. Rather than fidgeting with things on their desk or dangerously leaning back in their chairs students will be able to complete their work while still being in motion!
