Source: Between the Lions: "The Problem with Chickens & An Egg Is Quiet"
In this video segment from Between the Lions, the Dixie Chimps sing a song about an annoying chicken, emphasizing the “ch” sound. The Dixie Chimps sing about how it was first charming when the chicken chose to be seated, but that it then became alarming when the chicken chewed up the cheese without saying please and cheated at checkers. The lead singer sings that she's going to "chase that chicken right out of my chair." The chicken continues to do annoying things like chomping on chips, chuckling, and chirping. The chicken is chased out of the house while the Dixie Chimps sing, "goodbye, chick!" The song focuses on the "ch" sound and provides vocabulary words including: charming, chicken, chose, chewed, cheese, checkers, cheated, chase, chicken, chair, chomping, chips, chuckling, chirping, chase, choice, and chick.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
