About these activities
These activity sheets were developed by PBS KIDS Raising Readers, a national literacy campaign and part of the Ready To Learn initiative, focused on building reading skills at home, at school, in child care, and in the community.
Funded by a Ready To Learn grant from the United States Department of Education, the Ready To Learn initiative is developing engaging PBS KIDS Raising Readers television programs, exciting games, playful websites, and easy-to-use learning resources for kids, parents, caregivers, and teachers — all with the goal of helping children ages 2 to 8 get ready to read.
