When School's Out The Learning Doesn't Stop!

During the summer, WXXI Kids' helps to prevent the “summer slide” by focusing on literacy with 10 weeks of themed programming, online resources, video clips and episodes, apps, online games and activities. Each week will feature learn-related episodes from different PBS KIDS series on TV and new postings of related resources, games and activities.

Get ready for big fun when the Pteranodon family decides to take the Dinosaur Train to meet some of the biggest dinosaurs on earth during "Big Big Dinosaur Week", four all-new episodes premiering Monday - Friday, August 13-17 on PBS KIDS. During their adventure, they meet Allie Alamosaurus, an enormous, long-necked sauropod with huge legs, and Denise Diplodocus, who has a heck of a  neck! When they journey through the time tunnel to the Jurassic Period, our adventurers use the mighty whipping tail of Apollo Apatosaurus as a bridge during an action-filled treasure hunt. Finally, they meet up with their old friend Arnie Argentinosaurus, who has grown too big to ride on the Dinosaur Train any more. Tiny and Buddy arrange with Mr. Conductor for Arnie to be the first big dinosaur to ride on the new Dinosaur Train flatbed car!
