I share TWC with three groups of students weekly. Their excitement to learn something new, take a walk, and get some fresh air is contagious!
Our students get recess every day and PE once or twice a week however, more movement throughout the day is beneficial for learning.
These winter months can be the hardest months as teachers. We are stuck somewhere between winter and spring breaks.
With The Walking Classroom, I teach history, ELA, science, and health, as well as communication, teamwork, collaboration, and so much more.
The Montessori Method is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative play, and TWC is a perfect fit!
