To keep the summer learning initiative going with iVillage and PBS KIDS below are some great tips on raising knowledge loving kids and put some literacy fun in your summer plans.
Tip #1: Integrate reading adventures into your daily routine.
Tip #2: Explore your local library.
Tip #3: Bring learning tools with you on the road.
Tip #4: Find educational activities you and your child can do together indoors and outdoors.
Tip #5: Look for books and programs that feature your child’s favorite characters.
Don’t forget to check out SUPER WHY! Around the World Adventure on June 15th that will include two new episodes, “Super Why and the Around the World Adventure” and “Super Why and Naila and the Magic Map.” We got a screener of the new episodes and we loved the traveling adventures with the SUPER WHY! Gang and new friends Wobblebottom and Naila.
Along with SUPER WHY! PBS KIDS’ summer learning initiative will also include themed programming on-air, online and on mobile, as well as partnership activities to support literacy. During the 10 weeks, PBS KIDS will have themed programming (check local listings) to help parents reinforce learning even while they travel or play and with themes like Monkey Business Week, Royal Reading Week, Creepy Crawly Week and more everyone will be entertained.
