This resource is a collection of multimedia activities based on a particular theme and targeted math skills. Each activity guide includes digital content as well as related literacy connections and hands-on activities that allow children to practice and learn math skills to successfully complete a new adventure.
A unique feature to this resource is the "multi-show" approach to engaging kids with the content. Rather than focus on a particular PBS KIDS show or character, these guides use math skills to connect kids to multiple shows, characters and adventures in order to deepen their understanding of the math content.
- Multi-media content for two age groups, 4-5 year olds and 6-8 year olds
- Quick reference materials and media lists
- More About Math background for Leaders
- Parent Letters to send home with each child to encourage parent participation and to extend the learning at home
Activities run 10-30 minutes to allow for flexible scheduling.
Use this handy Math Standards Alignment Chart to find theme-based activities in this resource collection that are aligned to national math standards.
