The PBS Ready To Learn initiative is a nationwide effort using on-air, online, and print resources to help parents, caregivers, and early childhood educators prepare children for success in school. Locally, KNPB is bringing these resources to communities in northern Nevada and northeastern California.
As part of our Ready To Learn service, we offer free Ready To Learn workshops specifically developed for PreK through 4th grade students for educators and community educational organizations. An engaging video clip, a read aloud, and fun hands-on activities are integrated into each workshop. Lessons are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards and Social Studies Standards. All materials are supplied, and a trained facilitator will lead the 45-60 minute workshop.
An assessment of our Ready To Learn service (conducted in conjunction with the University of Nevada, Reno) indicates there is significant value in spending time in our workshops as they maximize greater learning outcomes through novelty instruction.
