The final walk will be here soon. This year I worked to plan our walks in tight precision with our curriculum. This was the easy part.
This is my ninth year using TWC, and I have to say that the podcasts remain fresh and relevant every year. So many resonate with my students!
I use TWC’s STEM podcasts to support the STEM learning of my students, using The Walking Classroom in “mini units” for my STEM classes.
My memorable moments in youth involved doing and moving and making. I want to create those types of learning moments for my students as well.
During our discussions following a TWC podcast, students often comment on the health lesson or topic addressed at the start of the podcast.
This month I have been thinking about how The Walking Classroom provides extra health benefits for my class. So many ideas jumped out!
These winter months can be the hardest months as teachers. We are stuck somewhere between winter and spring breaks.
Teachers have commented that on days where they walk, they are able to come in and focus better in their afternoon classes.
The ideas would be helpful, and we needed the perspective to talk about our daily playground drama. Watch for those hidden connections!
This post is part of our Walk This Way series. It provides a glimpse into the Walking Classroom experiences of Jane Keen and her students.
