Imagine having a simple way to keep your children entertained while waiting for your dinner at a restaurant or in line at the grocery store! PBS Parents Play & Learn, an app designed especially for parents, provides more than a dozen games you can play with your kids, each themed around a familiar location – including at the grocery store, in a car, in the kitchen, and many more.
This bilingual app makes it easy for you to take advantage of those daily “teachable moments” through simple games and activities that connect math and literacy skills to everyday experiences.
The app is designed to build on your child’s natural curiosity about the world and to encourage dialogue between kids and parents. Each game comes with a note for you that provides information about the math and literacy skills woven into the game and suggestions for effective ways to maximize the learning experience.
