students pay more attention to school when they sit on this big ball

the school have their chairs replaced with this big balls. so i think that they are more relaxed sitting on those big balls that they are able to concentrate on the lessons. and that they are more having fun while they are learning. so despite the lack of back support that they are not getting tired to sit straight up with those soft balls. i think they enjoy playing with the ball and moving it back and forth and going up and down sometimes with the ball and so it somehow relaxes their mind and so it increased their attention span. so i think it should be done in other schools as well.

Sitting on a ball requires effort to balance and I guess that's why the kids are more alert. When you are on a chair your body can slacken, relax too much, and feel sleepy. I enjoy sitting on the yoga ball myslef, but I am not sure if I can do it for a long time. I guess this can work for certain age groups, but not for the younger ones. I'm not sure about how parents would react to this. Do you think perhaps some would think their children are uncomfortable on their balls?
