Arkansas PBS is here to help support educators and education here in Arkansas.

Back to School

This school year looks different for all of us. To help families, teachers and students, Arkansas PBS and PBS KIDS has resources to help us work together to bolster our children’s feelings of confidence and security. Find ways to create and practice routines, cope with anxieties and emotions, find games and ways to learn at home.

Visit PBS Parents for downloadable resources such as checklists, planners and information on routines and learning at home.

Be a good citizen

Our educators have created toolkits and resources for parents and teachers to help guide and engage children through the civics process during this election year.

Creating opportunities to talk with your child about being a good citizen and the elections process early on helps develop an understanding of how to ask questions, become an educated voter, and learn how to speak to other citizens in productive ways in order to problem solve.
