Get (wiggle) With It!

My Students

"Please sit correctly in your chair!" "Stop moving!" "Sit still!"

There are 19 students in my class.

I have twelve boys and seven girls. I have a combination of regular education, students with disabilities, and English speakers of other languages. We began our year learning how to create a great classroom community. They enjoy helping each other. They are also very active third graders, hindering them from sitting still for a very long time. While I understand this is a common trait for eight and nine year old students, I also know there are things I can do to help them learn to sit still while working independently. Wait a minute?! Why sit still when they can wiggle safely on a Hokki Stool? My students often lean back in their chair, causing a safety issue since it is so easy for them to fall over backwards. By sitting on a Hokki Stool, my students can wiggle and squirm all they would like, safely and appropriately all while still engaged in the lessons.

My Project

Hokki stools will allow my students to focus on their academics. They won't have to hear, "Please sit correctly." or "Do not lean back in your chair." or "Stop moving!" I find myself repeating it more each day. I would like for their academic learning to not be interrupted. By providing an ergonomically satisfying Hokki Stool to my students, I know my students will be more focused on their learning and less worried about how they are sitting, and I can spend more time focused on teaching and listening to them read.

Using Hokki Stools during instruction time will positively impact my students' attention span and their ability to focus on the learning at hand, directly resulting in improved academic achievement, narrowing their achievement gap and widening our academic spectrum.
