In August, Pre-Kindergarten through 3rd-grade children can learn with these programs (and others):

  • Elinor Wonders Why encourages children to follow their curiosity, ask questions when they don’t understand, and find answers using science inquiry skills.
  • Sesame Street inspires children to use their imagination, builds social skills, and respect people’s differences.

Every week, you can count on your Pennsylvania PBS station to provide instructional programming for your learner. These schedules are color-coded by subject matter and aligned with PBS KIDS Learning Goals so that you can easily find the program that’s right for your child/student.

Activities to do together:

  • Play Bingo with WITF and WVIA
  • Download the Summer Activity Booklet from PBS LearningMedia, filled with games and crafts
  • Explore the Outdoors from PBS KIDS for Parents
  • Learn to make dishes from around the world with WPSU’s World Kitchen videos – explore recipes from Tunisia, Mexico, Peru, and many more (may require adult supervision).
  • Learn to draw with WQED’s Cartoon Academy with Joe Wos videos.
  • Check out Power Library, Pennsylvania’s electronic library, which includes Power Kids and Power Teens . You’ll have access to e-books on diverse topics, Book Flix, True Flix, and more. You can use your current library card to access Power Library or sign up for a free electronic library card here.
