When Classrooms Swap Chairs for Stability Balls #education #edchat

Exercise balls replace students’ chairs in Indiana classroom
A fourth-grade teacher in Indiana has replaced classroom chairs with exercise balls to help improve students’ fitness — and perhaps their grades. Studies show that sitting on exercise balls could help improve students’ concentration. However, students — who also use the exercise balls in physical-education class — are returned to their traditional chairs if they misbehave.

This story aired on the ONR on OETA-The Oklahoma Network. The reporter is Cathy Tatom; photojournalist is Edwin Wilson.

Test scores are up at a local elementary school and the teacher says it all has to do with what the students are sitting on.
