Newbury Park Teacher came up with the idea that has improved alertness


Some fifth-graders are having a ball in class.

Their Sycamore Canyon School teacher Janet (Jani) Taylor used donations to buy her class yoga balls to sit on. She likes to call them stability balls.

Taylor said her students in Newbury Park seem to pay more attention on their unique seats.

If they bounce around too much, they'll be asked to take a regular seat.

Taylor hopes her healthy approach catches on.
