Due to the small sample size of participants, chosen for convenience rather than at random, as well as young age of the students and their limited exposure to a school setting, the results should not be generalized to other settings. However, it is important to note, my results were similar to those of Roof and Kreutter (2010) who implemented movement in a seventh-grade and eighth-grade classroom while students were learning academic vocabulary. Participants in the current study and that of Roof and Kreutter seemed to benefit from movement as they were learning new vocabulary and
