Source: Between the Lions: "Pablo the Artist & Dream Carver"
This video segment from Between the Lions is an animated version of the published book Dream Carver in which a young boy has dreams of carving large animals out of wood instead of the small animals his family has been creating for generations. He pursues his dream even though his father discourages him, but in the end these beautiful carved animals are embraced by everyone, including his father, when they are displayed at the village fiesta. The story focuses on "d" and "dr" sounds and key vocabulary includes: wood carver, carvings, fiestas, quetzal, squirrel, gazelle, frog, and rabbit. This video segment provides a resource for Fluency, Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Text Comprehension, Vocabulary, Language and Vocabulary Development, Letter Knowledge Awareness, and Phonological Awareness.
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.
