Having a Ball in Class

-
(WOWT)  Finding a way to get students to focus on their work is a challenge for any teacher, but one Nebraska educator is trying out a new method that might just work.

At first glance, Mrs. Meader's 1st grade classroom looks like any other but a closer look reveals that the chairs are missing. They've been replaced with stability balls.

"Being able to use the core ball to bounce or roll within their area is allowing them to be able to continuously stay on task but able to move at the same time," Mrs. Meader explains.
