Wiggliness...Is That a Real Word?

My students need 5 Hokki stools to use for active sitting to help them work out the wiggles and encourage active thinking.

My Students

Wiggliness. They've got your normal amount of wiggliness. That's how I lovingly describe my students. My class would benefit from a seat that allows them to keep moving as they think and learn. We could use 5 Hokki stools.

My students are from a community school in rural Illinois.

For the most part, they have been in this building since Pre-K. They are great kids with your normal amount of wiggles and focus. They also have your normal amount of enthusiasm and interest, as well as a great sense of humor. They love new things and are always willing to try something new.

My Project

The Hokki stool is a colorful, durable plastic stool with slightly rounded base that transforms stationary sitting into an activity. A child is moving, even when he/she seems to be sitting still. This movement can help students with attention problems to work and learn for longer periods of time in an environment that is suited to their needs. It is an ergonomic stool that transforms stationary sitting into an activity, ideal for brainstorming sessions and other active sitting environments. When students can move their bodies while at work, they are able to keep their energy high and brain activated. The Hokki stool allows for this movement.

My students would be so proud and excited to know that there are others that believe in them as much as I do.

Your donations will show them that others care. My hope is that when they are grown, they will give back, just as others have given to them. If you support them, they will support others in the future.
