Stability Balls

Tasnim Shamma

  A teacher at Davidson Elementary school conducted an experiment late last year.  She gave her students exercise balls to sit on, instead of chairs. WFAE paid her classroom a visit then. A year later, it’s no longer an experiment. It’s become a way of sitting at the school, or rather, bouncing.

Take a group of kindergartners and first graders and let them bounce on exercise balls all day instead of asking them to sit still in their chairs.

Sounds crazy, right? Well, it’s happening at Davidson Elementary.
