My Students

My class is made up of students who have been admitted to a program for highly gifted children. I work hard to create a learning environment that is fast moving, project based, and individually appropriate. We use curriculum that benefits the unique needs of our students, with a strong emphasis on Language Arts, Math, and Science. Our goal is to help students become self motivated and confident learners,but also kind and thoughtful. Highly gifted children require a lot of stimulation and novelty to keep focused. No "down time" with these guys! Rather than spending a lot of time practicing skills, they move quickly through concepts as they "get" the big ideas. This creates a need for additional resources in our classrooms, such as books that cover six or more grade levels, flexible furniture pieces, math games that enrich and entertain, and science materials for projects and experiments.

My Project

My students need the core building Hokki stools to help relieve the fatigue of sitting on chairs all day. Hokki stools allow students to safely rock gently in every direction, while the design helps build their core muscles and improve balance and posture. All chairs should be Hokkis!

The Hokki stools in my classroom are consistently the most popular seats in the room, and I have to have a system for sharing them fairly!

The children who had particular trouble sitting still were drawn to them and were able to focus for much longer periods of time. Even adults are magnetically attracted to the stools when they visit, as they are so comfortable and so soothing.

These Hokki stools ROCK, both literally and figuratively!
