GPB Education Hosts Webinars For Families With Young Learners

GPB Education's early learning team is dedicated to supporting families with young learners, especially during a time that requires social distancing. That's why we're offering webinars to help parents and care givers to actively engage children. 
 
Check out our upcoming webinars:
 
 
When: Wednesday, April 15 at 10 AM ET
This is an instructional webinar for supporting caregivers of 5-8-year-olds (+ siblings) to actively engage children in the science inquiry process through hands-on learning and digital play. In this session, families will explore properties of various types of mixtures to see how some can be unmixed and others cannot be unmixed. Families will engage in the science inquiry process as they observe, question, predict, investigate, and share their findings.
 
When: Wednesday, April 22 at 10 AM ET 
Join us for lots of playful learning. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), grab your refreshments and let's learn about PBS KIDS Learning media and explore PBS KIDS Apps for learning fun! See you there!

The Cat In The Hat Knows A lot About That! Family & Community Learning (FCL) Webinar
This is an instructional webinar for supporting caregivers of 3-5-year-olds (+ siblings) to actively engage children in building science inquiry skills through hands-on learning and digital play. In this session, families will use science inquiry to extend the concepts discovered in The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! episode “All Sorts of Things.” Children will develop their observation and investigation skills by sorting a variety of human-made and household objects by their properties.
 
When: Thursday, March 26 at 10 AM ET
Did you know there are several "story time" strategies you can use while reading to your child, to help him develop early literacy skills without him ever knowing? Helping kids to begin developing literacy skills during early childhood is key to healthy development and success in their future schooling.
GPB education presents a webinar to provide hands-on strategies that will help families make reading learning fun. Join us to learn strategies to engage your early learner to increase playful learning.
 
When: Wednesday, April 1 at 10 AM ET
Bring your own device (BYOD) and join the fun as we explore PBS apps with an interactive connection to social/emotional play for your child. Feel free to have a snack and gear up to help your child learn. Come watch, play, and EXPLORE!
