PBS KIDS Summer Reading Chart (PDF)
Your child can chart their own reading adventures with this reading chart. Have them log each book they read and talk with them about their experiences. What did they like about the books they read? Which characters were their favorites, and why? Would they recommend the books to others?
PBS KIDS Super Summer Checklist (PDF)
Plan for a summer full of fun and learning with our Super Summer Checklist. Use hands-on experiences like hiking, building a fort, or making a sandwich to build skills like math (How many steps to the end of the path?), science (What can you see in this tree?), and language (What words describe your sandwich?). Don't forget to add your own plans to the list. Then, share them with PBS via Instagram or email. We can't wait to see what you're up to!
