Teaching Tips, developed by the Boston University School of Education, enable teachers to successfully integrate PBS KIDS online games into their classroom curricula to enhance children’s early math and literacy development. The Teaching Tips provide teachers with step-by-step lessons for using educational media to enhance standards-based teaching and learning.

Each Teaching Tips module offers 20-minute lesson plans for three to five games and suggests ways to use the games in teacher-led, whole-class activities and for independent learning.

Each module includes the following downloadable files:

  • Teaching Tips aligned to CCSS and the ISTE technology standards
  • Interactive Whiteboard Activities that build background knowledge, vocabulary and math skills
  • Parent Letters for each lesson to extend the learning at home
