When School's Out The Learning Doesn't Stop! June 3rd-August 9th


During the summer keeping kids learning and exploring helps prevent learning loss known as the “summer slide”. WXXI & PBS KIDS are here to help families by focusing on literacy and learning over the summer with themed programming, online resources, video clips, episodes, apps, online games, activities and live events.


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 resist this summer slump, PBS KIDS has developed 10-weeks of special on-air programming, a variety of online resources, and partnerships with Education.com, Scholastic and Grandparents.com to support families.


Each week, WXXI will feature learning & reading-related episodes and themes from favorite PBS KIDS series on WXXI-TV and new postings of related resources, games and apps on this site.  Follow WXXI Kids on Facebook & @edoutreach21 on Twitter for regular updates. Check out WXXI's American Graduate site at http://wxxi.org/grad for additional learning resources.

Parents and caregivers will find free, downloadable activity guides and printables and much more.
PBS KIDS also offers more than 25 educational mobile apps available on iOS and Android to help kids build key skills for learning. See http://pbskids.org/lab for more information on these options.
