PBS KIDS premieres new episodes of Martha Speaks, featuring special guest star Kenan Thompson of Saturday Night Live, starting Monday, November 11 at Noon on WPT. In “Stanley Saves the Day,” Thompson stars as Truman’s cousin Stanley, whose obsession with watching movies tends to get on his cousin’s nerves. When the gang spots two crooks at the Wagstaff City Hotel, Stanley’s knowledge of heist movies may be the best tool they’ve got to prevent a robbery. More new episodes will air Monday through Thursday of next week.
PBS KIDS has also launched a new collection of online activities from Martha Speaks, available at pbskids.org/martha/stories/truestories. “Martha’s True Stories” introduces children to the world of nonfiction through interactive books. The collection includes a series of free storybooks with interactive features, such as parent tips and scroll-over definitions. Designed for kids ages 4 to 7, “Martha’s True Stories” supports vocabulary development and includes a companion Parent Guide (in English and Spanish) and a Teacher Guide.
