The Walking Classroom {4th Grade Edition!!!}

Look at this!  Posting two days in a row!  I don't know what has gotten into me :)

Actually, I do.  I opened my email this morning and read something that I just HAD to share with you.  If you have been following me for a while, you know that last year I had the amazing opportunity to use The Walking Classroom with my students (click here and here and here to read all about our experience with it.).  It truly was (IS) an exceptional program and I couldn't say enough about it.  My students gained so much from using the walk kits and heading outside to do our lessons instead of sticking with the same old routine indoors.  They instantly loved the program, and so did I. (I can't wait to get back in the swing of things when I got back after my maternity leave!)

Luckily for me, I teach 5th grade, which just so happened to be the grade that the lessons were aligned to.  Unfortunately for many of my readers, there was no 4th grade kit written....UNTIL NOW!!!!  Laura Fenn, the founder and creator of The Walking Classroom, has just made the 4th grade aligned  Common Core curriculum  kits available to everyone!

So 4th grade teachers, here is your opportunity.  Go to The Walking Classroom and sign up for a grant for one of the classroom sets.  Or, if your school is looking to invest in an amazing program, the kits are 20% off until Dec 31!

I know there are quite a few of you who have recieved the grants for your room.  How is it going??  I would love to hear your experiences, as I am sure others would too!

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, no one asked me to post this.  I remember how many 4th grade teachers inquired about it last year so, when I saw the newsletter this morning, I just had to share :)


  1. Stephanie! Thank you so much for posting about the release of the 4th grade curriculum--we're very excited :) I thought some of your readers and potential Walking Classroom-ers might be interested in this video about the program that was produced by a fellow teacher:

    Enjoy that new baby! Thanks again!

    1. Thank you for the link to the video. It was great! And thank you for all the hard work you have done to get this program out there for everyone :)

  3. Thanks for letting us know about this resource. I noticed that it is american and your blog is Canadian. Did you still find the content worth it?

  4. I'm so wishing for my classroom to be a walking classroom!

  5. I am going to be looking into the walking classroom. We are a Farm To School Site and we are always looking for a way to add another something new. Thanks for posting.
