Summer Learning is Fun with WordGirl!

  • Jun 18, 2015


There’s a lot to be said for a superhero that not only fights crime with the aid of a monkey sidekick, but also helps kids build their reading, writing, and vocabulary skills.

That hero is WordGirl, and she’s out to take summer learning to a whole new level.

PBS Kids invites students K-3 to spend some fun time building their word power this summer with new episodes of WordGirl every Wednesday and Friday (check local PBS listings), accompanied by a free, downloadable Super Summer Fun Book filled with educational activities.

It’s also a great activity for families, one that will enhance a child’s education and help combat summer learning loss.

Check out the video playlist below for a sample of WordGirl’s word power.
