It’s the second week of Arkansas AMI, and we have fresh programming and resources for you! Each block of programming per grade will open with an Arkansas Teacher of the Year educator who will guide students during the instruction time, and the grade band teacher will reference companion resources and activities from the “Arkansas AMI” packet. Please, contact your school directly for directions on how to receive their specially tailored packet. While you can download the basic packet at myarkansaspbs.org/ArkansasAMI, we may not have access to the special content or instructions that your child’s school has included.
