CREATE YOUR OWN HERO
Everyday people can do amazing things! The Xavier Riddle Hero Maker game helps kids learn about historical figures who changed the world, and then lets kids play and create their own character. Talk about and create essential worker heroes like first responders, postal carriers, utilities workers, doctors and more.
YOU, ME AND COMMUNITY: TOGETHER WE'RE THE KEY
Introduce your children to their communities - including the helpers and essential workers keeping everyone safe - in a series of sing-along videos called “You, Me & Community.” Watch now for free on the PBS KIDS Video app and the PBS KIDS YouTube channel.
KIDS REGRESSING? HELP THEM COPE WITH STRESS DURING CORONAVIRUS
Since young children aren’t likely to say, “Hey Mom and Dad, I feel stressed and need help right now,” what should parents be looking for? And when we do see signs of distress, how do we support our kids in a way that builds resilience?
TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK: THANK A TEACHER!
Write a virtual thank-you note to your child’s teacher, together. Take a screenshot, fill in the blank, and share it on Twitter or Instagram! Don’t forget to tag your child’s teacher or school, tag @PBSTeachers and use #ThankYouNeighbors.
