Back To School With Every-Ready PBS

Some of us may be ready for the end of summer while others may wonder where the summer went!  Yes, it’s time for school routines and trusted resources for home and classroom, and PBS is ever-ready to support teachers and parents in a new school year.

For teachers, the back-to-school collection on PBS LearningMedia offers curriculum-aligned resources that can be customized to meet the unique learning needs of younger students.  New this school year are classroom posters, available in English and Spanish, along with the Teach Your Way calendar and Spark Learning with DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, a self-paced learning course for PreK-2 teachers.  For older students, a PBS LearningMedia search for specific grade level, content and resource types provides resources for grades PreK-12.

Also, parents and caregivers can visit the back-to-school hub on PBS KIDS for Parents for age-appropriate tips, activities, and printables that help children create routines, manage their emotions, and build new friendships. New resources like How to Prepare Your Child for a New School and Setting Goals for a New School Year support parents in preparing their kids for new experiences. Additional articles and activities – like building a family fort and making a back-to-school time capsule – will be available throughout August and September to offer conversation starters and opportunities for reflection in kicking off the new school year.

In addition, the respected program, PBS NewsHour, has a page devoted to Back to School coverage of topics such as online learning, masks in schools and student anxiety, especially relevant in unpredictable and unprecedented times.

Resources such as these can support students, teachers and parents as they experience a new school year often filled with joys as well as challenges.
