A different seat

Provided Windsor Hill Arts Infused Elementary School third grade GATE teacher Alisha Bailey researched sitting on Yoga balls and discovered that movement increases oxygen flow to the brain, which in turn increases the level of learning and thinking. Bailey wrote a Donors Choose grant for $350 and raised the funds in one week to buy yoga balls for her students. She reports that students are more actively engaged in their lessons because they are constantly moving.
