"I think The Walking Classroom is great. I love being able to get outside and move around."
—5th grade student
"I ride the bus everyday and sort of slump in my seat when I get to school. Walking around wakes me up and I feel like I learn better afterwards."
—5th grade student
"You mean walking helps my brain learn better? Seriously?"
—5th grade boy
"The Walking Classroom is actually really good!"
—said with a smile by an overweight 5th grade girl and self-proclaimed “hater of P.E. class"
"I firmly believe that kids learn better when they're active, and while that's easy to do with 2nd graders, it's a little harder to get older kids motivated. My students are asking every day to walk! The players add such a modern touch that they can identify with and the students who teach each lesson are very engaging. I can see parents using the program over the summer to keep kids in the swing of things and keep skills strong. I'm excited about myself getting to walk every day too! I have been telling all of my friends and family about this program. My teacher friends are so jealous! Thank you again for this amazing opportunity. "

"I showed the program to our reading specialist and she thought that it was amazing. What I really love is that it is cross curricular. My kids are champing at the bit to walk every day."
—Mary Obringer, Teacher, Ohio
"My students and I love The Walking Classroom. Not only do the podcasts help cover the curriculum, but my students are so much more teachable when we get back to class. They think they’re “getting out of something”, but in fact, they’re getting so much more."
—Chad Brown, Teacher, North Carolina
"We are getting to be old pros! The Lewis and Clark expedition went well, as did our Walking Classroom adventure! The kids’ recall of the material was very impressive. Two of my guys with pretty severe attention issues answered nine of the ten comprehension questions correctly and added unique insight into the class discussion. I could see the confidence in their smiles."
—Mary Tarashuk, Teacher, New Jersey
"We started the program a couple weeks ago and the kids love it!"
—Marie Collins, Teacher, North Carolina

—Gaye Sartin, Principal, North Carolina

—Ellen Coble, Teacher, North Carolina
