Chicken Riddle was written for a kindergarten and first grade summer camp.  Children love stories that are familiar to them.  The familiarity helps engage them.  People of all ages learn better when the information is relevant and interesting.

Chicken Riddle builds reading skills and fluency. The play reinforces prekindergarten through first grade sight words.  It models how exclamation marks are used to show extreme emotion.  The rhyming names and animal characters involve children in developing listening and speaking skills. The repetitive lines help encourage children to become confident readers.
