The days are getting warmer by the minute, which means summer is around the corner. Children are coming closer to the end of the school year but that does not mean they have to stop learning. We are excited to announce the partnership of Vegas PBS and Andson Academic to provide a fun reading program so children can keep their minds active. The summer reading program is developed around the exciting adventures of Martha Speaks; a dog name Martha eats alphabet soup that goes to her brain instead of her stomach. Now, Martha knows how to talk!
During the Martha Speaks Reading Buddies Program, kids watch and talk about a MARTHA SPEAKS episode, read and discuss a related picture book, play a game or do an activity, and then write in a journal. Students support each other, while improving their vocabulary knowledge.
The Martha Speaks Reading Buddies Summer Program will be provided for free at all the Boys & Girls Clubs of Henderson, St. Anne’s summer location, the YMCA Heinrich Club, and St. Jude’s Ranch, as part of their activity rotation.
We start the 5-week program on June 17th!
Andson Academics is very excited to team up with Vegas PBS to provide this fun learning program to our different sites. We hope to continue this partnership to provide education to all children. Stay tuned to hear some success stories from the program!
