We Like To Move It . . . Move It! Ergonomic Balance Stools
My students need a way to move while learning. These four Hokki stools will allow my most active students to get their wiggles out and stay focused at the same time!
I have a very diverse group of students from many cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and learning levels. My students are happy to be in school each day and eager to learn!
My class works well together and strives to be a part of each other's successes!
We start work before the bell rings and work hard until the last minute of school. Every minute counts in our classroom. I am driven by their growth and their excitement. Our days are filled to the brim!
A common misconception is movement while learning is either disruptive or a problem; but it's not the problem, it’s the answer! We must move to think. A 2008 study found that children actually need to move to focus during a complicated mental task. I have seen this firsthand in my classroom!
My students will use these four ergonomic Hokki stools to move while learning.
The stools will allow my most busy students to move even when they seem to be sitting still, causing less distraction among the other students. Teaching and learning can continue without stopping to address behavior concerns due to a student feeling the need to move. There is a convex base that allows movement in all directions, helping children to increase core strength and have more control over their bodies. Students will share these stools throughout the day.
Anyone who has stepped inside a first grade classroom has surely noticed how much energy is coursing through the many little bodies that fill it! My students exude this energy and try their very best to work hard and make every minute count. Some students struggle even more than others, and these stools will help them especially. They will be able to continue to work and learn all the while giving their energy an outlet. Distractions to our class will be minimized, allowing all to strive!
