PBS Kids Island

PBS KIDS Island gives children the tools to build an online island carnival by playing reading games with PBS KIDSŪ characters. Providing a familiar and comfortable environment for emerging readers, the research-based program guides children through eight different literacy-building levels, including phonological awareness, letter recognition, letter sequencing, phonemic awareness, word families, phonics-decoding, text comprehension, and vocabulary. PBS KIDS Island is currently serving the needs of children ages 2-5, with plans to offer content for children ages 6-8 in 2009.
