Students Have a Ball
Sitting on exercise balls brings more
than a smile to students and teachers
September 21,2009

Sitting on a chair all day in school can make anyone want to move around. So, more and more teachers are letting students have a ball. By replacing chairs with exercise balls, teachers find students posture and attention improve.

在学校整天坐在椅子上课,会令每个学生都想活动活动一下。因此,越来越多的老师想让她/他的学生上课时有一个健身球(有一个球。另一意思是;‘尽情享受’)。用健身球来代替椅子上课。老师们则发现学生的坐姿和注意力有很大的改进。

Dottie Pownall, a fifth-grade teacher in West Virginia, has been using balls as chairs since December 2008. “The students love them,” she says. Pownall took a survey of her students. She found that 80 percent thought sitting on the balls helped them focus better.

多蒂 波纳尔,一位西佛吉尼亚州的5年级老师,自从2008年12月份以来,就使用健身球来当椅子给学生们上课。“学生们很喜欢它”,她说。波纳尔老师通过调查她的学生,发现有百分之80的学生认为,坐在球体上上课会帮助他们有更好的注意力听课。

Former teacher Lisa Witt felt so strongly about the use of balls as chairs she started WittFitt. This company encourages the use of balls. In addition, the company educates not only teachers but also students on how to use them. “We have clients in 24 states, three provinces in Canada, Puerto Rico and Japan,” says Witt. :Research shows that sitting on the balls promotes sitting up straighter. You can slouch on a ball,” says Witt, “but it feels awful.” Because the students are moving, their blood flow increases. That carries more oxygen to the brain, so the kids have more energy and can focus longer.

原老师,莉莎 威特已使用WittFitt,她对用健身球代替椅子上课抱有强硬的态度。除此之外,健身球的生产公司不仅教老师怎样使用他们生产的球,而且还辅导学生们使用。“我们的客户遍布美国24个州,在加拿大有3个省份,波多黎各和日本都有我们的产品。” 莉莎 威特说。“研究显示;坐在健身球体上上课可以提高腰部坐得垂直,但,你也可以无精打采地坐在球上”那样的话,“你会感到很尴尬” 威特说。因为,学生坐在健身球上每移动一下,他们的血管就会增加流通,这样就可以输送更多的氧气到孩子们的大脑。所以,孩子们就有更多的精力,注意力就更长久。

“Furthermore, they’re fun,” says Pownall.
“此外,学生们也觉得有趣” 波纳尔说。
