Creative Learning

My sister-in-law told me about this school that has a classroom where all the kids sit on exercising balls and their concentration and scores improved. My nephews sit on balls while doing their sister-in-law will be able to explain all of this better than me.
Anyway, PF has been trying different places to do work, study and read. She bounces on balls, swings in hammocks and now she is sitting in beans.
She is self motivated regardless so I am not sure that it has improved her concentration. What I do know is that she is enjoying the change. It adds an elements of excitement to schoolwork when you can do something else while working on it. So I would have to say it is curing any boredom that she has had.

This makes me want to look for one of those Balls for James. Anything to help him stay on task. What do you use for Science?
