My Students

Help us get our wiggles out and increase our learning! Movement with Hokki stools and stability balls increases blood flow to the brain, which is better for brain function (and learning!).

Third graders are fun, creative, and active learners.

Our school is in a fabulous community near Virginia Tech. In our classroom you will always find a diverse group of students who are willing to learn. Students like to choose how they learn best. Students have the option to stand and work, sit on a stool, ball, or the floor with a clip board.

My Project

These stools and balls will give active third graders more options to sit where they are comfortable learning. Movement with Hokki stools and stability balls helps children "get the wiggles out" which aides their natural need to move. This helps them focus by expending the excess energy they build up throughout the day.

Sitting on a Hokki stool or stability ball supports and builds their core muscles as well as increases brain functioning.

The students are able to choose where they are comfortable sitting and are able to do their BEST learning. The students and teacher both love it.
