Beginning June 16, PBS KIDS and WGBH will be airing three all-new episodes of MARTHA SPEAKS during “Martha Speaketh Weeketh!”
During Martha Speaketh Weeketh, kids can watch their favorite canine linguist speaking in questions, in Polish, and even Elizabethan English. The fun continues online with the brand new game, Martha’s Steaks. Children learn vocabulary as they make Martha’s furry friends hurdle, dash, soar, and tumble to catch treats through Martha’s dream-landscape of steaks, bacon, and drumsticks!
My kids have had a blast getting ready for this exciting week of vocabulary lessons and they’ve been reading the Perfectly Martha book, MARTHA SPEAKS Canine Comics book, and flipping through the MARTHA SPEAKS flipbook. They enjoyed watching a few advanced episodes from Martha Speaketh Weeketh, and also had one of the most exciting play dates at Chuck E. Cheese’s, a sponsor of MARTHA SPEAKS, courtesy of PBS Kids.
Martha may be a dog, but she has a lot to say. So, grab your kids (and the neighbors too) and sit them down for a lesson.
