With the Stay at Home order this week, school at home has been extended to nearly the end of April with uncertainty about when our kids will return. We’re all in a similar boat attempting to manage school expectations, children’s motivation, our own expectations. And, it can be overwhelming.
Some help is on the way!
PBS Wisconsin and Milwaukee PBS are partnering with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to offer us some support! There will be a new weekday schedule of programming and digital resources that will work to meet Wisconsin’s state academic standards.
What will be offered?
- Streaming shows with corresponding digital resources Monday through Friday from 5 am to 5 pm.
- Programming from 5 – 7 am for kids in grades Pre – K to 3 including SciGirls and Peg + Cat.
- Grades 4 – 8 from 7 am – 1 pm including Nova, Genius by Stephen Hawking, and History Detectives.
- Grades 9 – 12 from 1 – 5 pm, including Masterpiece, and the American Experience.
Starting on Monday, we’ll be able to tune into our PBS station from 5am – 5pm for educational programming. There will be specific blocks of time for subjects and grade levels. The programming will include math, English language arts, science, and social studies for Pre-K through 12th grade.
You’ll also be able to find the programming streaming online along with the digital resources that correspond with the programming. Just visit pbswisconsin.org/at-home-learning for those resources!
When you visit pbswisconsin.org/at-home-learning you’ll also find fun educational video games, online and print resources, PBS Newshour Student Reporting Labs, and more!
