Engage students with GPB resources                    MARCH 2018

It's time to sharpen those pencils! GPB invites Georgia students in kindergarten through third grade to create a great story, illustrate it, and enter it in our PBS KIDS Writers Contest

Stories can be fact or fiction, poetry or prose, and will be judged on originality, creative expression, storytelling, and integration of illustrations. A first, second, and third place will be chosen from each grade level. Additionally, three stories will be selected for the STEAM Award if their story effectively incorporates science, technology, engineering, arts, and/or mathematics. 

The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2018.

The contest is supported by a robust set of resources for children, families, and teachers, including activity sheets and checklists to inspire children during the brainstorming process. For more information, go to gpb.org/writers-contest.
GPB Education offers a variety of  free resources for St. Patrick's Day, including videos, lesson plans, and activities. 

Explore the origins of the holiday, learn fun facts about St. Patrick's Day traditions, and more! 

GPB recently launched a new math game GASHA GO! for kids in kindergarten through third grade. The game leverages engaging characters and fun math challenges to build kids' number sense - a sense of what numbers mean and their relationship to one another.
The game is aligned to Georgia's latest math standards and Georgia elementary math teachers were included in the development process. GASHA GO! is designed to work across web and mobile platforms and is available online and via mobile devices at gpb.org/gashago.
