My Students

My students love learning. Fourth grade students need to move! They love recess and gym because they get to move during these times. My students have a lot of energy. My students learn best when they are able to keep moving. It is a struggle for students to stay in their seat for hours on end.

My students are active learners.

They attend art, music, PE, and library classes. They enjoy moving around and being able to move during instruction. Every year, I have at least a few students that would rather stand than sit during instruction. Many students enjoy leaning on their chair for the stimulation that it provides. They enjoy being active and learning. Our school has staff that reaches out to students, even if they don't have them in class. Every student can be successful in one way or another. It is a small school with about 3-4 classes per grade level. The students enjoy being involved in academics, along with extra curricular activities.

My Project

My students will take turns using this Hokki stool to help them stay focused during instruction, group work, and independent work. This stool will be a great addition to our classroom. Students will be able to spend time working without the distraction of restlessness. The stool will allow them to move even when they're in class, without distracting others. This project will make a difference in all of my students' lives. It will be particularly helpful to those students that need to move. They will be able to enjoy class time without worrying about not being able to be active. It will help their minds to be actively involved in learning.

This project will help my students to move when they are learning in the classroom.

It will help them to focus better in class! They will enjoy being able to move. They will not be distracted by uncomfortable seating!
