My Students

A typical day in our first grade classroom is busy! Our students have a schedule that would match any adults. At the end of the school year, I not only want my students to be ready for 2nd grade, but I want them to feel confident about who they are and what they know.

I work in a small Title 1 school.

My students are energetic, enthusiastic, full of personality and questions, and eager to learn. My students continuously keep me on my toes with their "out of the box" questions. They are thoughtful and considerate of others in our classroom. We treat each other like one big first grade family. They are so full of personality and energy that it is not uncommon to see them talking with a buddy, singing curriculum songs, or making up movements to go with information taught in class.

My Project

The Hokki stools will be a great asset to my classroom! My students are on the move all day! Most of the time their chairs are pushed out while they stand around their desk. Because I understand their need for movement, I provide multiple opportunities for them to move during learning and throughout the day. However, it is an expectation in school that students sit at a desk. I already have 5 of the Hokki stools in my classroom and it has been amazing to see how much they help my most active students focus on their work. Adding more Hokki stools would allow me to help more students meet the expectations of sitting at a desk, while still allowing them to move.

These stools will make such a difference for my students who need constant movement.

My students are so excited when it's their turn on the stool. Your donation to this project will help provide more stools and allow my most active students be able to sit at their desk, while still being able to get in the movement they need. Your donation to these stools will help build students' concentration and improve their academic success.
