Planning for NTI Days? KET Education Can Help

As you are planning and looking for resources and content for possible NTI days, remember that KET Education is here to help Kentucky educators.

KET’s PBS LearningMedia repository is a powerful, free tool when planning NTI day lessons for students in all grade levels, including thousands of classroom-ready resources aligned to state standards. Videos, games, lesson plans and supplemental materials can be searched by grade level, subject area, keyword and standard. And PBS LearningMedia’s Google Classroom integration makes it easy to share resources with your entire class. Content contributors include KET, PBS, PBS KIDS, NASA, the National Archives, the Library of Congress and many more.

When reliable internet access may be an issue, PBS KIDS broadcast programming on KET is also a great option for younger students. Free apps available can also be downloaded ahead of time and then work without internet access. PBS KIDS series and apps are aligned to curriculum areas and specific learning goals. You can find the broadcast schedule for all of KET’s channels including the 24/7 PBS KIDS channel online.

If you need further assistance or ideas for incorporating PBS LearningMedia and PBS KIDS content into your NTI day planning please contact the KET Education team at NTI@ket.org.
