Learn all summer long with AETN and PBS KIDS!

Posted on 05 Jun 2014

School may be out for summer, but learning never ends! We’re here to help bridge the summer learning gap with free AETN and PBS KIDS resources - on air and online. On top of our new summer daytime kids’ schedule that kicked off on June 2, we’re getting ready to share all sorts of fun digital and community resources available.

Get started preventing summer learning loss by checking out the AETN KIDS and Parents pages. On top of our parents' blog updates with the latest PBS offerings, we have a great range of activities and downloadable materials.

To get started, be sure to check out the AETN Parent Resource Guide, which tells you all about the many different AETN and PBS materials available online, on air and near you.

Hitting the road this summer? Or just need a great learning activity to keep everyone occupied? Check out our “Fun on the Run Activity Book” and “Really, Really Fun Pages.” From mazes and coloring to word searches and problem solving activities, these books feature your kids’ favorite PBS KIDS characters and keep brains busy!

You can also make library trips even more fun with this free, downloadable AETN KIDS reading chart - it also is a great way to keep track of books kids loved to revisit later!

And, of course, don’t forget to sign up for the AETN KIDS Club. Each month we send out a newsletter jam-packed with book suggestions, activities, games, family-friendly recipes and news about new PBS KIDS episodes and events.

Last, but not least, keep checking in with us on the AETN Engage and Parents blogs. We’ll have updates the entire summer about additional resources, fun games and activities, upcoming Arkansas events, and free apps, episodes and e-books.
