Students Find Focus with Exercise Balls
I find this really inventive and fun! I learned from my child's occupational therapist, that often times children need a physical or auditory "distraction" in order to focus. Really. These kinds of physical distractions (or auditory like a low hum or buzzing toy) focus extraneous energy in one place, allowing students to refocus the rest on the task at hand.
Another great news bit from my new favorite news source: The Patch. This one's from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.
