I first heard about The Walking Classroom because my daughter got to participate in it as part of her AIG program. As a third grade teacher, I knew it would be hugely beneficial to our students.
The program provides a way to get more time outside and moving during the school day. Beyond that, it also provides a way to build students’ background knowledge on a wide variety of subjects. It has not disappointed!
Our twice weekly walks on a famous walking trail that runs right past our school campus are a highlight of my students’ week. I love it, the kids love it, and it is also really nice for people in our community to get to see us moving and learning. I love the smiles and compliments we get from community members as we represent our school while walking, listening, and learning with The Walking Classroom!
