My Students

Our students have more demands placed on them than ever before. Teachers have to balance academic learning with students' social and emotional needs. We want them to dream big and achieve, but also still be six year olds! The first graders in my class are a perfect example of this - creative, thoughtful, spunky, and full of life.

It is imperative that we give our students a choice and a voice whenever possible.

This empowers kids to advocate for themselves and take ownership of their education. Students need practice in finding what adaptations suit them best. When issues arise, the first thing that I ask my students is, "What do you need to do your best?"

My Project

I have been testing out flexible seating options in my classroom for two years. I have used mats, pillows, and standing options to allow my students to pick a "smart spot". Far and away, my students prefer the Hokki stools. I have three at the moment, and I would love to add more so more students can experience them.

I have seen the difference in work ethic and quality when my students choose their own seating.

They feel empowered and that their needs are respected. They work more diligently and efficiently when their bodies get what they need.

The Hokki stools have been particularly helpful in this, because although we take several movement breaks a day, it is not enough for some of my active learners. The stools help them to stay focused on the task at hand while getting the sensory input that they crave. Having more stools will allow more students to get what they need.
