Season Two of “Rise and Shine,” an extensive educational program designed to boost summer learning and offer K-5 students an engaging way to gain academic knowledge between school years, will start Tuesday on Arkansas PBS.
The six-week program airing weekdays from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and livestreaming at myarpbs.org/watch will feature lessons grounded in Arkansas academic standards and led by Arkansas teachers to reinforce learning in literacy, math, science and social studies.
Season Two of “Rise and Shine,” a partnership of Arkansas PBS and the Arkansas Department of Education, will consist of national PBS KIDS educational programming, as well as more than 90 hours of high-quality, predominantly locally produced programming and resources available at no cost to families. The over-the-air broadcast of “Rise and Shine” will help fill the void for students who do not have internet access outside of school.
