The Walking Classroom!

I am absolutely THRILLED to announce that our class has been selected to receive a donated set of Walking Classroom materials!

Read about this wonderful program HERE

Through the generosity of sponsors, we will be getting a classroom set of MP3 players loaded with specially made Grade 5 Common Core English Language Arts podcasts.

What will we do with these amazing materials?

We will WALK!  And LISTEN! Every day!

Numerous studies have shown the effectiveness of combining physical activities with academic studies.  Here are some studies from The Walking Classroom’s website:

Science behind the project

My goal for this program is to give students the opportunity to get out, move around, and provide additional materials to students with various learning styles.  I think we all can benefit from the fresh air, exercise and innovation this program will provide.

I feel the program will be motivational and FUN!  Our kids are already “plugged in”, and the class is very excited to get started!

I will be keeping you updated with our progress!
