I have 24 wonderful children who come to school everyday excited to learn. All kindergarten students have a range of skills and interests, and it's my challenge as a teacher to help them all maximize their learning potential. They also have a bunch of energy, and even though we try to fill their day with a variety of activities to help channel that energy, they could still benefit from additional movement while learning. I am working hard to provide as ideal an environment as possible to facilitate their education, and a wobble stool is one more piece to help achieve that goal.
Our first fundraiser was a success, we have received the first eight chairs and can really see an improvement with how the children are engaged. This follow-up fundraiser seeks to raise enough money to purchase enough chairs for each student.
The chairs give the students an outlet for their physical energy, so they can better focus their attention on learning.
With wobble stools, our class will be able to safely move, wiggle and shake during their work time. This will increase students productivity, application of knowledge and overall learning.
One of the biggest challenges we face learning at any age is being able to focus and pay attention. Research shows a correlation between freedom of movement and ability to learn. The wobble stool is a technique teachers have been using with good results to improve the ability to focus for early education children. I'm looking for fund Hokki brand wobble stools.
