The balance balls are great alternative to a traditional chair. While my students have access to different style chairs, they are looking for more. They have recognized their love of changing seats throughout the day. The freedom of choice and movement keeps attitudes and thoughts positive as we learn. The addition of balance balls provide an extra benefit other than being a "different". They engage the student's body core as well as allowing some bounce. Many students say they focus more on their work when they can move in their seat. This physical engagement increases the engagement of the mind.
