This year teaching face to face with social distancing, The Walking Classroom was even more appropriate! The kids loved getting outside and looked forward to ALL of the podcasts! We were all very grateful for a chance to learn and break away from masking.
We used targeted podcasts that coincided with our weekly skills. After working with a weekly skill, we would listen to the podcast while getting outside for a breath of fresh air and increased movement time. After the spring of 2020, we all needed to engage in more physical activity!
The kids definitely saw an increase in their assessment data and partially attributed it to their experience with The Walking Classroom. They were able to make the connection from the physical activity and retention of skills.
I have used The Walking Classroom for years, but this year I and my administrator saw academic progress because of increased use of the program. A big thank you to The Walking Classroom!
