Focused Seating for Fourth Graders
My students need flexible seating in the classroom! Hokki Stools will allow our students to release energy and fulfill their sensory needs while working towards their academic goals.
Our students come from a variety of different backgrounds and experiences. To many of our students, Brooklyn is a new, foreign place to live and learn. Many of our students come from across the globe, speaking multiple languages. Our class is comprised of 28 students and two collaborating teachers. We have students who are role models; appropriate social skills , academically at or above grade level, and are overall kind hearted. We also have a portion of students who have learning disabilities and sensory needs. These students struggle academically and socially and require more supports to access the general education curriculum.
Overall, our students are imaginative, inquisitive, inventive and very lovable!
They are blossomed critical thinkers and flourish in our project-based classroom. They thrive on getting their hands dirty, exploring their environment and learning.
Our fourth graders are full of energy...as they should be! As educators, we expect our students to sit for an extended amount of time and complete their best work. Sitting for a long time is tiring! Providing stools that allow our energetic bunch to move appropriately as they are writing, reading, working on projects, and solving math problems will enable them to keep focused and alert.
With these stools, our students will be able to move, in an appropriate and non disruptive way, as they learn.
Many of our students need to move and take breaks as they acquire new skills. Unfortunately, a traditional classroom is not conducive to that need. This stools will provide a necessary sensory input to those students who require consistent movement throughout their day without pulling them from their work and/or distracting their peers.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
