We Want to Wiggle While We Learn Part 2!

My students need hokki stools to improve focus and burn off energy!

My Students

"Stay in your seat. Sit still. Stay focused on your work. Sit in your chair like a 3rd grader." All these things and more are said countless times to students each and every day.

My students are hard-working, fun-loving students who are lucky if they get gym once a week.

Over 90% of my students qualify for free lunch. Teaching a special education inclusion room, many of my current students are diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and struggle to maintain their focus. Even though they struggle, they want to work hard and succeed. As their teacher, I want to make this possible for them and support them in every way. Many of my students need the ability to move and work, allowing them to stay focused as they learn.

My Project

We are on a 6-day rotation schedule for specials, meaning that my students are lucky if they get gym once a week. Add in a 15 minute recess once per day, if they get outside on time and if the weather allows which doesn't always happen in New England. It is easy to realize that my 3rd graders spend very little time outside exercising and the majority of their time sitting in a seat in the classroom. With these Hokki stools, students will be able to move as they work, increasing their learning and focus!

With these stools, many students who struggle to stay in their seat, on the rug, or focus on the lesson will be able to remain seated while giving a little 'wiggle' room to move allowing them to focus more on their learning and less on their desire to wiggle.

I have students who fall out of seats they move so much, and I know these stools will help them!
