My students are kind, creative, and eager to learn. They love hands on activities that challenge them and they always take pride in their work. In our classroom, I foster an atmosphere of community and family and my students always take care of and encourage one another.
While the ways in which my students learn may differ from child to child, each of them love to learn and always strive to do their best.
I use a variety of instructional methods and seating options to give my students the greatest possible opportunity to learn in ways that work best for them.
For students at this age, sitting in a chair at a desk or table all day can be a difficult task. Studies show that students who are able to move around in their seats focus better, and pay more attention to what they are being presented. My students are an enthusiastic group that love to learn, but could use a little extra help getting their wiggles out.
At this grade level, students are still full of energy and very active, and have trouble sitting still for periods of time.
The Hokki stools that I have chosen will help them to stay in their seats and encourage movement, but without becoming a distraction for the rest of the class. This will help them to stay engaged, actively learning, and on task.
