Prepping for a Very Different School Year: Strategies for Parents

Parents and caregivers are wrestling with tough questions about the 2020-2021 school year: What will it look like if/when children are physically in school? And what will it mean for family life if/when children are at home for hybrid or remote learning? In the face of these challenges, there’s a lot we can do to bolster our children’s feelings of confidence and security as they head into a new year. Join PBS KIDS, top child development and education experts, and other parents and caregivers of children 2 to 8 for a virtual conversation! With the help of Daniel Tiger, Wild Kratts and other PBS KIDS friends, we will answer questions and talk about the “little things” that will make a big difference whatever school looks like for your family — from routines that support social and emotional growth and academic learning to mindfulness habits for the whole family.

Distance Learning Strategies for K-2 Teachers

Registration Open: A Week of Virtual PD for K-2 Teachers

Educators,

You’re invited to a week of free, virtual learning with PBS KIDS. Hear from teachers across the country as they share successes and lessons learned in the transition to distance learning this past spring. Their stories of how they connected with families, used media and tech to encourage creation, and tackled distance learning in the absence of tech will provide inspiration and foundational tips you can use to prepare for an uncertain year – where some kind of distance learning is likely to be a reality. Join us from August 3 – 6 for four days of online learning and fun with a community of teachers like you! Register Now

Your Week at a Glance

Your week of virtual learning will start and end with LIVE, online learning events with other K-2 teachers. The middle of the week will feature daily, asynchronous challenges emailed each morning that you can do on your own time, to continue your learning and build upon distance learning themes and strategies.
