Let's Hokki Around With A Pink Hokki Stool

My students need a Hokki Stool to add to our others so they can wiggle while they work and remain focused.

My Students

How many 3rd graders do you know that can sit still in a hard plastic chair for several minutes at a time? There are not many in my two classes that can. The Hokki Stool will join our others to allow students to move yet seem as though they are sitting still while focusing on their work.

I teach at a wonderful school that is full of great students.

We are a Title I school. We have a high percentage of students who are on the free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch program. I teach reading and social studies to two groups of very active 3rd graders that are at different levels academically. At any given moment throughout the day you can find some of them standing up doing their work, sitting on their feet, rocking, or tipping back in their chairs. While doing these things, some are focused and doing their work, but many are focused on something else.

My Project

I am requesting 1 pink 18" Hokki Stool to go along with our other stools to help the more active students in my class to sit and focus. I also use these stools in small group guided reading instruction to help with the focusing during our reading time together. The Hokki Stool is made of durable plastic that transforms stationary sitting into an activity. The student is moving while he/she seems to be sitting still. A student will be able to sit and work for a longer period of time while sitting on a Hokki Stool instead of sitting in one of the hard chairs that we currently have. These stools are ideal for active sitting environments. They also help students with their posture, balance and ability to focus.

The Hokki Stool will help students to concentrate a little better on their work, on information being presented to them, and while in small group than focusing on trying to sit still.

Since I already have some, I have seen improvements with focusing, grades, and self esteem.
