Sometimes kids just can't sit still! There's nothing wrong with that. It's completely normal. However, traditional classroom seating doesn't allow for much movement. Alternative seating helps students concentrate on learning by allowing them to move around in their seat as they learn.
Most of the students in my class come from low-income families.
In fact, at our school, 86% of the students receive free or reduced lunches. We also have a very high special education population making funding accommodations difficult. In addition, my students are very active. They love wiggling in their seats and moving about the room!
Some students get restless when they are seated for long periods of time. To cope, they walk around the room or ask to go the bathroom. They sometimes cause distractions to other learners. A Hokki Stool is a special type of classroom seating. Unlike a traditional classroom chair, a Hokki Stool allows a student to wiggle around a bit while staying in his or her seat. These seats give students the freedom they need to move around and release some of their energy while staying in a learning mode. The chairs that I am requesting encourage students to bounce and wiggle while staying in their chair. These alternative seat choices will help many of my students. With them, some of my more distracted learners will be able to refocus their attention on school work. The new seating will lower the number of classroom distractions and will help increase the success of all the students in my class.
These non-traditional seating choices will not only help some of my more antsy students by helping them focus on learning; they will also help by lowering the number of distractions for all the students in my classroom.
Please help me help my students by donating to this project! Thank you for your consideration!Read More
