This summer, PBS LearningMedia turns the spotlight on this spectacular collection of resources supporting literacy skills development in grades PreK-12. Educators are invited to visit the new summer literacy collection with featured resources from Martha Speaks, Poetry Everywhere, Super WHY!, and The Electric Company.

The Electric Company is king when it comes to blending learning and play. This featured resource gallery offers elementary school educators 13 contextualized resources from The Electric Company illustrating the purpose and function of the “Silent E.” These resources are designed to engage your students while simultaneously addressing four areas of literacy instruction: Decoding, Vocabulary, Comprehension of Connected Text, and Motivation. The gallery includes the following resources:
