We Do the Hokki Pokey...To Get the Wiggles Out!

My students need Hokki Stools so we can move and learn!

My Students

Sitting in a traditional classroom chair is overrated. Students need to MOVE. My third graders are an active bunch, and it is my goal to bring Hokki Stools into my classroom as an alternative to a traditional classroom chair.

My students attend a Title I school that is predominately Hispanic.

The majority of my students are English Language Learners who are working towards fluency in English. My students come to school determined and motivated to learn. I want to provide my students with as many opportunities to learn, not only in third grade, but for the remainder of their lives.

My Project

The purpose of my DonorsChoose project is to use Hokki Stools as an alternative to the traditional chair in the classroom. This will help my active learners focus better on their instruction. Not only will it help them focus better, but it will also allow them to use their core muscles that will help them keep attentive during instruction. The Hokki Stools allow the students to sit up straighter which keeps their brains attentive. The Hokki Stools also allow active children to move during instruction without disturbing others in the classroom. With the Hokki Stool movement, it will allow for more learning in the classroom!

My personal goal is to enhance more learning in the classroom.

By providing students with Hokki Stools, it will increase their attention which will help them learn! Please help my students!
