Multiplatform content and partnership activities provide Mountain Lake PBS families with tools to prevent the “summer slump” and inspire exploration
This summer, Mountain Lake PBS will provide families with a variety of free and educational resources to encourage young learners to continue learning and exploring over summer vacation. Research shows that students experience significant learning loss when they do not participate in educational activities during the summer months, and that loss is even greater among children in low-income communities. To combat this summer slump, PBS KIDS has developed 10 weeks of special on-air programming and a variety of online resources.
The line-up includes:
- SESAME STREET – “Literacy Quest Week,” starting June 17th
- MARTHA SPEAKS – “Puppy Week,” starting June 24th
- CURIOUS GEORGE – “Creative George Week,” starting July 1st
- DINOSAUR TRAIN – “Dinosaurs A-Z” starting July 8th
- DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD – “Let’s Play Outside Week,” July 15th
- THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! – “Let’s Get Wet Week,” starting July 22nd
- ARTHUR – “Sports Week,” starting July 29th
- WORDGIRL® – “What’s Up With WordGirl Week,” starting August 5th
