I have found that The Walking Classroom is a fun and innovative way to mix education and exercise. It fits perfectly with my philosophy to keep kids on the move while they learn.
The supplemental videos that The Walking Classroom provides through its Adopter Resources are very helpful, especially for my students who are visual learners. These videos help to reinforce the main ideas of the podcasts that some students may have missed as they listened.
Also, I’ve noticed that students who are known for behavior problems are often the ones who beg to do The Walking Classroom. That’s fine because these kids benefit the most from the additional movement!
Now that I have a good system in place, I’m excited to share this program with more students (and other teachers!) next year. Thank you to The Walking Classroom for helping my class to learn in such an innovative and fun way!
