Back to School & Reading Games

August is already here, which means back to school is right around the corner! Summer fun isn’t over quite yet, but it is important to begin thinking about transitioning back to the classroom. August 9th is National Book Lovers Day and reading a story about going to school is a perfect way to get the conversation started.

FOR KIDS: READING GAMES

It’s time to finish up those summer reading books! PBS Kids offers many different reading games to practice your skills before heading back to school! These games can also be played on the PBS Kids Games app or downloaded to your device.


FOR PARENTS: BEGINNING THE BACK-TO-SCHOOL TRANSITION

For some children, the back to school transition can be difficult. Back to school can lead to anxiety and stress and it is necessary that parents are part of the team that helps kids cope with these emotions. Setting goals for the new school year with your child is a great way to plan for transition together.
