Keeping second-graders on the ball

Rachel Anglin, a second-grade teacher at Greenbrook Elementary in Southaven, Mississippi is on the ball. Anglin and her 24 students are sitting on exercise balls donated by a local fitness center, reports the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

The balls “help the mind,” Anglin says. “If your body is working, your mind is working.”

The rules state, “Two feet on the ground,” “Balls stay on the floor,” and “No jumping, rolling or bouncing high.”

A little bouncing is fine.  “It helps them get the wiggles out,” Anglin says.
