PBS KIDS Island (for Emerging Readers)
PBS Kids Island offers free reading games and activities for young children, parents, caregivers and teachers to use at home or in the classroom. The site takes children on an adventure as they build their own online island by playing reading games with PBS KIDS characters. The research-based program guides children through literacy-building skills, including rhyming, letter identification, alliteration, phonics, letter sequencing, phonemic awareness and vocabulary.
PBS Kids offers educational games, apps and videos featuring characters from your favorites PBS KIDS shows, like Arthur, Martha Speaks, Curious George, Wild Kratts, Sesame Street and WordGirl. The activities help kids build a range of important skills in Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading, Problem-Solving, Teamwork, even Music. And many of these games are available in Spanish, too. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your choices, use the PBS KIDS Activity Search tool to find just the right game, project, story, song or book for your child.
