Wiggle While We Work! - Part 2

My students need 4 hokki stools!

My Students

Have you ever had one of those days where you just couldn't sit still? Well, for many of my students...it's not just one day, it's EVERY day! That's why we need Hokki Stools!

I am so blessed to teach 1st grade at a wonderful and fun "high performing" school in Las Vegas.

My class is filled with the most friendly, lovable, respectful kids you will ever meet! Not only are they kind and caring, but they are hard working. Every day they come to school excited and ready to learn!

My Project

The human body is not designed to be static. Numerous scientific studies have shown important interconnections between body, mind and soul. Physical movement increases oxygen supply and is essential for stimulating cognition. When we are physically engaged, specific hormones are released that have a positive influence on brain activity. As a result attention spans grow longer and the ability to concentrate improves. Research proves that this relationship between movement and brain activity leads to better academic results. HOKKI stools connect the body and mind by allowing students to wiggle on convex bases while seated at tables. The stools will appeal to our kinesthetic learners, as well as our active children. Hokki stools also help students with the development of their core strength, balance, posture, sense of place in space, and ability to focus.

Your donation to this project will help to engage all of the learners in my classroom.

My wonderful wiggle worms will be able to move, without distracting their peers. The slight movement provided by the Hokki Stools will assist my students in being active listeners, more alert learners, and in turn will lead to better academic results.
