My Students

"When you exercise, your body and your brain go back into balance..... knowing that, the best time to give a standardized test, or any test, or to introduce new material, is right after a really good physical education class or recess."~Steve Patton Daily Dunklin Democrat, August 15, 2014~

My students are very energetic.

They start every morning with some kind of movement; they love to dance and move around. Our students believe exercise creates brain cells. We are part of the Dual-Language class. We are a Title 1school in a district that is economically disadvantaged with a very diverse group of students who enjoy coming to school everyday.

My Project

My students need the Hokki stools to sit down and work while they are at their computers and small group table. During this time, the students are very sedentary, and although the content is important, the potential for retention is not optimal. Having the Hokki stools in my classroom, will allow the students to keep moving while learning, and as I mentioned before, the more they move, the more they will absorb and learn.

Having the Hokki stools in my classroom will help create a healthier learning environment, keeping my students moving and more engaged, and ultimately better facilitating them for success.
