In this video segment from Between the Lions, Rhymo, a hip-hop-singing rhinocerous, can't stop thinking about the letter "c." Rhymo and his hip-hop-singing hippopotamus friend, Hip, rap about the hard "c" and soft "c" sounds, giving examples of objects that use the hard "c" (like candy) and the soft "c" (like celery). They also sing about the difference between the country and the city, using "c" phrases like cool breeze, clean air, cinder blocks, and cement. Hip has never been to the country and Rhymo has never been to the city, so they decide to collaborate and go on a world tour through the country and the city. Featured vocabulary includes country, city, cosmic, collaboration, celebration and other "c" words. This video segment provides a resource for Fluency, Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Language and Vocabulary Development, Letter Knowledge Awareness, and Phonological Awareness.
