Thank you for The Walking Classroom. It is because of this program that my students are getting a deeper understanding of STEM concepts while getting physically fit. We look forward to our morning walks, either around the track or in the building, and the subsequent conversations that follow.
My students enjoy sharing what they have learned with other teachers and administrators. Other teachers have inquired about what we are doing and they are seeking similar opportunities for their students.
Finally, with the incorporation of the daily walks, we have won the schoolwide third through fifth grade monthly walking challenge six of the seven months we have been at school! We are also leading the school in the Walk across North America challenge.
Thank you for making a positive difference in the lives of my students. Because of The Walking Classroom, we have not only increased our academic knowledge, we are getting physically fit in the process.
