With Addie starting kindergarten this Fall, learning this summer and building on her vocabulary are very important points for us. MARTHA SPEAKS is a great tool - a show "designed to bolster the oral vocabulary of 4-to7-year-olds, engaging them with humor and imagination." We're right in that sweet spot, and if you have a little one that is, too - then this week, tune into MARTHA SPEAKETH WEEKETH on PBS KIDS (check your local listings) to catch new episodes, and then check out the all-new Martha's Steaks game on the PBS KIDS website for even more learning fun!
This Tuesday, May 13, PBS Distribution will be releasing a trio of new DVDs from some of PBS KIDS' popular educational series'. ARTHUR MAKES A MOVIE, MARTHA SPEAKS: MARTHA'S SUPERHERO ADVENTURES and the DINOSAUR TRAIN: DINOSAUR BIG CITY/DINOSAURS A TO Z DOUBLE FEATURE will each bring families new collections of the shows they love.

This Tuesday, my friends at PBS Distribution are releasing a pair of new DVDs featuring the PBS KIDS series' DINOSAUR TRAIN and MARTHA SPEAKS. Gearing up for those, they've sent over some clips, along with one from the February 25th release of DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD: DANIEL'S BIG FEELINGS.

My oldest daughter just wrapped preschool for the season, and while I do have her enrolled in a Day Camp a couple of days a week throughout the summer, I - like many parents - want to make sure that learning doesn't take a break just because school's out. To help combat the summer learning slump (a genuine issue that the National Summer Learning Association has data on), my friends at PBS KIDS have come up with a variety of FREE RESOURCES for kids and parents, including 10 weeks of themed programming, printable activities, and they've developed some great partnerships to keep learning fun and productive all summer long.
