P.A.U.S.E.


P.A.U.S.E. stands for Pedaling Across America Everyday. For the last couple of months, my students have been pedaling an exercise bike to various states. We left Atlanta several weeks ago on our way to South Carolina. Each day we PAUSE to hear a story or students read silently as a child pedals on the bike. The number of miles, the number of pages read, and the time are recorded on chart paper. In addition, students go to the computer to find out the weather for that day. As we PAUSE during the day, we come across words that we think would work well with our daily journal. The journal must include the target words for that day. The chart is placed in the writing center for students to practice cursive writing or they may type it on the computer or typewriter. We discuss places of interest and incorporate the curriculum objectives for all academic areas. Right now, we are eighty miles from South Carolina.
