PBS’ exclusive learning program for early childhood.
PBS KIDS PLAY! is an award-winning, computer-based program that uses interactive content to engage students in cross-curricular learning. The program adapts the level of challenge to each student based on learning progress and aligns to Common Core and McREL standards. It uses game-based learning and popular children’s characters, such as The Berenstain Bears, Bob the Builder, Curious George, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Super WHY!, Thomas & Friends and others, to create a uniquely engaging, interest-driven learning environment. The program goes well beyond math and language arts to address creativity, science, and developmental themes.
Educators can monitor each student’s progress, as well as view class-level progress and time on task. PLAY! also enables educators to assign specific activities either to individual students or to the whole class.
In PBS KIDS PLAY!, a child’s actions in the environment directly affect his or her experience. Students alter the game play and unlock collectible rewards by progressing through the game levels. As the games level-up, they don’t just get more challenging; they also address skills corresponding to the next stage of early childhood development.
