The PBS KIDS Summer Reading Challenge: Week 6
Summertime is really getting hot, but it is also time for some cool fun with the PBS KIDS Summer Reading Challenge. During the week of July 9-13, special programming will feature The Electric Company and it’s new Prankster Planet! This The Electric Company program and online destination offers 6-9 year old children a hip portal into the world of literacy. While it is really fun to play, the backbone of the program remains literacy with a curriculum of vocabulary, phonics and comprehension of connected text.
The episodes airing this week include:
“The Limerick Slam” – July 9 (encore presentation on July 13)
“Fromage Here to Eternity” – July 10
“Electric Accompany” – July 11
“A Whole New Francine” – July 12
Be sure to tune in for The Electric Company Monday through Friday at 5:00 p.m. on WCVE PBS/WHTJ PBS or on Sundays at 2:30 p.m. on WCVW PBS.
