Carondelet is excited to announce that our fourth grade classes are now getting fresh air and exercise while they learn. Thanks to a recent grant, the class received “WalkKit” audio players for each student preloaded with over 100 podcasts on topics including science, social studies, and language arts.
The Walking Classroom is simple. Students take brisk 20-minute walks, as a class, while listening to the same custom-written, kid-friendly podcast. Each podcast begins with a brief health literacy message, and the lesson plans in the Teacher’s Guide help educators effectively discuss and review the podcast material. The program gets kids out of their seats and walking without sacrificing instructional time, and capitalizes on the strong connection between physical activity and improved brain function, resulting in improved classroom performance. Carondelet is one of four schools in the state to have introduced this new innovative technology to the school day.
