We have nineteen students in our mixed ability classroom, so exercise is especially important to our everyday learning. Additionally, as with all classrooms across the country, our student interest varies. Some students are very interested in the Revolutionary War, and yet others have a deep interest in science — specifically, some of the life science and scientific authors.
With The Walking Classroom, there is always something for everyone! Our students know the true value in listening and learning, and the importance of repeated exposures to the same podcast.
We are the envy of other classrooms in the school as we are walking, listening, and learning two times a week! Our students couldn’t be happier. The Walking Classroom gets some of the only constant positive comments about school that we receive during the school year and during parent-teacher conferences.
