This weeks PBS Kids Summer Reading Theme is “What’s the Story?” Week.
Like many of us here at WGBY, lots of you out there grew up with the old-school Electric Company. Well, in 2009, a new version of The Electric Company premiered as a multi-media literacy powerhouse charged with reducing the literacy gap between low and middle income families and advancing the idea that ‘reading is cool.’ Here are the episodes scheduled to air this week:
- “Wicked Itch” – Tuesday, July 5, 2011
- “Unmuffins” – Wednesday, July 6, 2011
- “One Smart Cookie” – Thursday, July 7, 2011
- “One Bad Apple” – Friday, July 8, 2011
The Electric Company airs at 5:30pm on WGBY. For more fun activities and games to promote summer literacy, visit The Electric Company website.
