The Walking Classroom
Through a grant opportunity, my class and I have the great privilege of becoming a "Walking Classroom"! This program helps address different learning styles and allows for physical activity within the school day. Students walk, listen, and learn to educational podcasts which are aligned to the Common Core State Standards. I feel it will be especially beneficial for students who are highly active due to its physical stimulation and that being able to get up and move around will enable my kiddos to better enjoy, remember, focus, and understand a lot of the concepts needed to move on to 6th grade. So far, we have utilized this great program numerous times and look forward to using it all throughout the year!
SHOUT OUT MOMENT! I originally heard about this great program (and the FREE grant opportunity) through the incredible Stephanie over at Teaching in Room 6. Check out her and her class out HERE for a video of them IN ACTION!
