PBS KIDS Summer Literacy
Any time can be learning time, and summer is a perfect opportunity to raise a reader. WTVI PBS Charlotte will be hosting the PBS KIDS Summer Literacy program. This multi-platform learning initiative is designed to address the learning losses children experience when they’re away from the classroom – known as the “summer slide.”
Starting Monday, June 3, WTVI will offer 10 weeks of themed programming to inspire children ages 2-8 to explore and learn. Each week will feature episodes from a different PBS KIDS series. The line-up includes:
Beatties Ford Library Literacy Kick-Off!
Miss Beverly reads to the children
2013 PBS Kids Go! Writer’s Contest Winners
Few things capture a child’s imagination like a good book. We would like to invite you to join WTVI-PBS Charlotte as we encourage children to create their own stories and to take part in the PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest.
The PBS KIDS GO! Writers Contest is a national-local contest designed to promote the advancement of children’s reading skills through hands-on, active learning. The Contest encourages children in grades K-3 in communities across the country to celebrate the power of creating stories and illustrations by submitting their own original pieces. The Contest extends the powerful tradition and annual success of the 15-year national “Reading Rainbow Young Writers and Illustrators Contest.
