Mrs. Johnson from Uncasville CT is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Rockin' and Wigglin' in Our Seats

My students need the benefit of Hokki stools to keep them focused academically as well as safe in their seats as "tip overs" are common occurrences in our classroom.

My Students

My third grade class is a diverse, energetic and often boisterous group of learners. Our class population speaks 2 languages other than English and some are ELL students. Sixty-two percent of our class receive free/reduced breakfasts and lunches and we are one of three elementary schools in the district serving kindergarten through grade five.

My enthusiastic youngsters work hard and thrive on movement activities.

Students are seated at tables instead of desks and sit in traditional chairs. Typically, some students demonstrate their need for movement by tipping back in their chairs which creates a safety issue when tipping over.

My Project

These Hokki stools will allow fidgety students to move without having to leave their seats. Keeping my third graders focused and on task is one of my objectives to enhance student learning. Although I build in movement breaks throughout the day, some students need to move during a lesson which breaks their focus and the focus of those around them.

I believe my students will be excited to use this alternative seating option.

While my goal is to create an environment that is conducive to learning, I am also concerned about their safety. Traditional seating allows leaning back in their chairs and tip overs occur regularly. An added benefit to these stools is the design of the base allowing for some pivoting forward and back, and side to side. Students can both, move safely and remain focused on their lessons.
