My Students

Our school is in an agricultural area. Many students have farm animals, like to play outside and have friends that live close to them, some students commute to our school from the nearby city.

The students in my class are very hard workers, they love to learn by moving, interacting and participating in hands-on and visual learning.

They are excited to learn. They have a very positive energy, are so king to each other, love animals, science, reading and enjoy having fun while learning.

My Project

Active Seating has many positive benefits. A classroom that has active seating has less behavior problems, increased focus and motivation. Other positive benefits include movement in all directions, which is critical to student development as physical movement increases well-being and encourages physical and intellectual maturing process.

With flexible seating the amount of time in which students are actively engaged will dramatically increase and so will student achievement.

Currently, we have 7 stools similar to these. The students love them, look forward to their turn and I have noticed a dramatic increase in their ability to pay attention when using the stool that day. I am so impressed, thankful (for the previous donation) and my students would greatly appreciate the gift of more Hokki Stools.

Students love Science. They look forward to it and I am continually trying to find curriculum and experiments that let them learn while being totally engaged and excited. The hands on plant kit I have selected will definitely help me meet these goals. Students will grow plants and learn about the importance of the plant's habitat. This is something that is so important to teach our children, the importance of our habitat and how it directly effects us.
