In this video segment from Between the Lions, the singers of Fonix sing about their love for contractions — the making of two words into one. The singers sing and dance among and on animated animals and flowers in various environments, such as fields, oceans, and cities, while the contractions appear written out as they are sung. Featured contractions include: here’s, there’s, it’s, don’t, let’s, we’ll, and you’ll. The featured vocabulary word is apostrophe. This video segment provides a resource for Fluency, Phonemic Awareness, Vocabulary, Language and Vocabulary Development.
This media asset comes from the Between the Lions episode: "Pete’s a Pizza & Pygmalion."
