        Verbal Blending with the Between the Lions Knights

        In this video from Sirius Thinking, Ltd., a father and his son take advantage of one of the entertaining literacy activities available in the Middle Country (Long Island, NY) Public Library’s Between the Lions Reading Den. The pair are using library-provided materials to play a verbal blending game based on BTL's "Gawain’s Word" segments, which feature Monty Python-style knights "crashing together at high speed" to make a word. The words the father and son are building are all "short-i" words, particularly relevant because they have just watched a BTL episode in which "short-i" sounds are featured.

        Contributor: The Library Den project was developed by Sirius Thinking, Ltd., in collaboration with: WGBH Educational Foundation Family Place Libraries Libraries for the Future
        Funder: Funding for the Library Den research and development project was provided by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (a component of NIH).
