We talk about how research shows great benefits when active learning is used in the classroom. Walkabouts are a great way to get students moving and learning in the classroom, but don't take our word for it. Hear what those who are using Walkabouts say about our online adventures with Jax and Gia.

Teachers

“We absolutely LOVE it. It allows them to move their bodies and learn, while allowing me to assess who has mastered or needs reteaching of the lesson. The worksheets are an added bonus as well.” April Swain, Kindergarten Teacher

take brain breaks. We mainly use the program during those transition moments between classes. We love Walkabouts!” Lila Kittredge, Teacher

“I am loving the walkabouts :) We did a math lesson today counting objects to 20 and my group of 8 active kindergartners LOVED it!”

Anna Kay Johnson, K5 Special Education Teacher

Library Media Specialist

“As a former kindergarten teacher, I know how important movement is for kids to stay on task. I focus on the literacy part of Walkabouts. I’ve been using them with Kindergarten & first grade. For the first graders, I use them at the end of the lesson to see if they understand the concept. With the kindergarteners, I use it in the beginning to get them moving. I just put it on my whiteboard from my laptop. The kids get up from the carpet and start moving! I absolutely love Walkabouts.” Kristie Smith, Library Media Specialist

Curriculum Technology Coordinator

“I love the concept and have viewed various lessons in different content areas for the different grade levels. I will definitely have my PreK-2 teachers using this.” Tammy Yarborough, Curriculum Technology Coordinator
