Martha`s True Stories

Martha’s True Stories is based on Martha Speaks, an animated series and interactive website on PBS KIDS. It introduces kids ages 4-7 to the world of nonfiction through interactive books where they can read along with Martha as they learn vocabulary skills.Martha's True Stories are divided into four STEM categories: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (environment, technology, inventions and measuring).

Within each category, you'll find two nonfiction stories about the topic, plus another kind of nonfiction "text" (instructions, recipe, a made-up website, and so on). You can review the words using the Word Bones interactive glossary. There is also a short vocabulary quiz for each story or text, that will help reinforce the new vocabulary and concepts.

A parents guide and a teachers guide are also available.
