Gail Smiths classroom or gym is full of bicycles and unicycles stacked on racks, at each corner. She started a regular twice-a-week unicycle practice two years ago and her Cottonwood Elementary School students have been on a roll.
It seems to pull them in and they try really hard, she said.
Unicycle riding develops a variety of skills from determination to balance, Smith explained.
But the four giraffes five-feet tall unicycles and their shorter counterpart stayed put lately.
This week theres no unicycle practice and theyre all moaning and groaning about it, said a smiling Smith.
