It's time to rise and shine!

“Rise and Shine,” an extensive educational program designed to make summer learning fun and offer K-5 students an engaging way to gain academic knowledge between school years, will kick off Tuesday, July 6, on Arkansas PBS. The six-week program airing weekdays from 8 to 11:30 a.m. will feature lessons grounded in Arkansas academic standards and led by Arkansas teachers to reinforce learning in literacy, math, science and social studies following a year of schooling heavily disrupted by the pandemic.

The six-week series will connect students with mini-lessons led by the following Arkansas Teachers of the Year:
•Susanna Post, 2021 Arkansas Teacher of the Year, 3rd-5th grade math lessons.
•Joel Lookadoo, 2020 Arkansas Teacher of the Year, K-2nd grade math lessons.
•Stacey McAdoo, 2019 Arkansas Teacher of the Year, 3rd-5th grade host and K-2nd grade science lessons.
•Randi House, 2018 Arkansas Teacher of the Year, K-5th grade literacy lessons.
•Courtney Cochran, 2017 Arkansas Teacher of the Year, K-2nd grade host and 3rd-5th grade science lessons.
•Meghan Ables, 2016 Arkansas Teacher of the Year, K-5th grade social studies lessons

Additionally, each weekday students will be taken on a virtual field trip with partners across the state. Field trips for week one will include:
•Bell Urban Farms to learn about the life cycle of a flower and the importance of bees and butterflies.
•Museum of Discovery to learn about the elements and unique properties of liquid nitrogen.
•Central Arkansas Library System to learn about things besides books that can be checked out from a local library and a quick craft.
•Arkansas 4-H to learn about hiking safety.
•Scott Family Amazeum to learn about candy.

Other special segments throughout the week will include science with “Robbie Rocket”; nutrition information with “Zach Lunch”; fitness through dance in “Time Out With Tay”; and Steve the Music Man literacy music videos.

Families and organizations are encouraged to request “Rise and Shine” Power Packets – free summer learning activity kits that follow along with the series – to help extend learning beyond the broadcast. Power Packets are available in English and Spanish and can be downloaded or requested to be mailed directly to homes, daycares, summer camps and more. Both the request form for printed packets and PDFs of the activities can be found at myarpbs.org/riseandshine.

"Rise and Shine" is brought to you in partnership with Arkansas Department of Education.
