Let's Hokki Around With Some More Hokki Stools

My students need 2 more Hokki Stools which allows them to move while they focus and work.

My Students

How many 4th graders do you know that can sit still on a hard plastic chair for several minutes at a time? There are not many in my three classes that can. The Hokki Stool will allow students to move yet seem as though they are sitting still.

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 three groups of very active 4th 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 two 18" Hokki Stools to help the more active students in my class to sit and focus. These stools will join the ones that we already have giving more students a stool to sit on during class to help them with their focusing. 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. These stools are ideal for active sitting environments. They also help students with their posture, balance, and ability to focus.

These Hokki Stools will help students to concentrate a little better on their work and on information being presented to them.

Therefore, we should see improvements with grades and self esteem
