PBS KIDS is teaming up with iVillage for the iVillage PBS KIDS Summer Reading Community Challenge and we’re so excited to join in on all the fun. In fact, this summer we plan to keep reading an important part of our daily routine. Being an early reader it is very important that my husband and I both encourage Kaila to keep reading. She already enjoys chapter books but I want to be sure she’s more than prepared for second grade in the fall. Being an advanced reader already I want to keep encouraging her.
This is where iVillage makes it fun!Â The iVillage PBS KIDS Summer Reading Community Challenge begins June 18 and features free literacy-building resources for parents and children designed by the experts at PBS Parents and PBS KIDS. Challenge Coach, Angela Santomero, Creator, Executive Producer and Head Writer of SUPER WHY!, will provide daily reading activity assignments, answer parent questions and offer advice throughout the online event.
Additionally, PBS KIDS will offer other summer literacy resources on-air and online, with themed weeks airing on PBS KIDS, as well as online tips and resources for parents to use with their children this summer.
We wanted to encourage the young readers in our life and had a fun sleepover where the girls all had fun with their new goodies from iVillage and PBS Kids.
Thee girls had a lot of fun with the activities that we were sent, and they love things like word searches which help build on vocabulary and spelling. It’s a fun way to keep kids learning throughout the summer. We’re the type of parents that always work with our child out of school but all too often during the summer months kids can get out of the habit. Learning and having fun are some of the best ways to keep kids excited about learning and reading!
