I am so thankful for The Walking Classroom program! I have the opportunity to share The Walking Classroom with three great groups of students weekly. It is awesome to watch their faces light up when I enter their class. Their excitement to learn something new, take a walk and get some fresh air is contagious!
I believe the combination of movement and learning fosters better understanding of the subject and boosts mood and behavior. The students truly enjoy actively learning.
The lessons are engaging and informative. I also love the health messages and character values that are tied to each podcast. The students complete a pre-walk and post-walk quiz with comprehension levels significantly improved after each walk. We will be learning about Barack Obama (4-#12, Complete-#125) this week to tie into President’s Day.
I appreciate the opportunity to share this innovative way of learning with students. I look forward to our weekly walks as much as they do! Thank you so much!!
