Ms. Pacanowski from Apopka FL is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Strong Minds and Bodies

Help me give my students four Hokki Stools to enable my scholars to boost their physical activity while working.

My Students

I teach a group of highly motivated and diverse learners at a Title I elementary school. My class is an enrichment classroom with accelerated learning opportunities for my 20 high-performing scholars. These students are talented readers and enjoy challenging and above grade-level work. This year, these students will be learning grade standards but will have many opportunities to interact with text and tasks that extend beyond grade-level requirements.

When I raise the bar, my students always rise to the occasion.

My Project

Have you ever seen a Hokki Stool? They are a remarkable seating option that allows students to gently rock and wobble in a seated position. They represent a safe and healthy way to boost movement in the classroom.

Hokki Stools help build core strength and flexibility while boosting concentration capabilities by combining movement with academic work.

I currently have 8 computer desks in my classroom that students use for various tasks during the day. Working at a computer can be one of the most sedentary tasks, but with a Hokki Stool it becomes a chance for boosted movement. These four stools would replace the remaining four stationary chairs I have, so that any student using a computer will have the ability to wobble while they work!
