Our schools are closed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, causing thousands of students to be without access to educational instruction. Buffalo Toronto Public Media is here to support families, educators, and students as a community classroom during these challenging times.
Now as the school year has come to a close the broadcast of the “Learn at Home” schedule on WNED PBS KIDS has concluded. We will continue to keep you connected to learning resources throughout the summer. Videos and activities for families, caregivers and teachers will be posted here on our website, our social media platforms, and PBS Learning Media’s free online service. We’ll also continue to post learning resources in our WNED PBS Parents & Teachers group on Facebook.
The lesson plans and digital resources adhere to New York's state curriculum to provide continued at-home learning.
Here in the Learn at Home section of our website you will find resources to expand learning and family engagement including discussion questions, reflection pieces, conversation cards, content extension resources, PBS KIDS learning tools and more.

We are pleased to share another great resource for parents and their home-bound students!

We’re pleased to share free content that our partners at America’s Test Kitchen have created to help kids and their parents dealing with school closures. They have gathered a weekly curriculum filled with recipes, activities and quizzes that’s all about teaching kids how to cook with bonus extra learning moments about science, math, history and culture.
Every week, there is a new Kitchen Classroom plan. Think of it as a sort of kitchen curriculum, composed of recipes, activities, and quizzes, one or two for each day of the workweek and a bigger project the whole family can tackle on Saturday or Sunday. It includes as many pantry-friendly recipes as possible, to minimize grocery runs. Feel free to make swaps and substitutions as you need to make this work for your family. And we want to see what you’re up to! Share what you make by tagging @testkitchenkids or using #atkkids on Instagram, or by sending us photos firstname.lastname@example.org.
