´╗┐The name of the show appears in colourful letters on an animated sky. It reads "TVO Kids Power hour of learning. Teacher edition."

The caption changes to "Today's primary lesson: You've got mail."

The caption changes to "Primary 1 to 3. Teacher Joel."

Teacher Joel is in his twenties, with short wavy black hair and a shadow of a beard. He wears a gray T-shirt.

He waves at the camera and says HI TVO KIDS!
AND WELCOME TO TVOKIDS
POWER HOUR OF LEARNING.
TODAY'S PRIMARY LESSON:
YOU'VE GOT MAIL.

Joel says HI IT HAVE BEEN KIDS
AND WELCOME BACK TO ANOTHER
EPISODE OF POWER HOUR OF
LEARNING.
MY NAME IS TEACHER JOEL.
AND I'M SO EXCITED TO BE WITH
YOU LEARNING AT HOME FOR THE
NEXT HOUR!
DURING OUR TIME TOGETHER TODAY,
WE'RE GOING TO BE CHECKING OUT
SOME AMAZING IT HAVE BEEN KIDS
SHOWS.
AND I'M GOING TO BE POPPING UP
IN BETWEEN THOSE EPISODES TO
TEACH YOU A FEW LESSONS ABOUT
SOME OF THE BIG IDEAS WE LEARN
ABOUT IN THOSE SHOWS.
AND I WILL BE GIVING YOU SOME
IDEAS TO EXTEND YOUR LEARNING AT
HOME.
NOW, WHEN I'M NOT TEACHING HERE
ON IT HAVE BEEN KIDS, I'M A
KINDERGARTEN TEACHER IN TORONTO.
AND TODAY I WANT TO TELL YOU THE
TWO THINGS I TELL TO MY STUDENTS
AT SCHOOL TO MAKE SURE WE'RE
GOING TO HAVE A GOOD DAY
TOGETHER.
IF WE DO THESE TWO THINGS EVERY
DAY, I PROMISE IT WILL BE A
GREAT DAY.
THE FIRST THING I LIKE TO THINK
ABOUT EVERY DAY IS WE'RE GOING
TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW.
NO MATTER HOW OLD YOU ARE.
KIDS, GROWN UPS, WE CAN LEARN
SOMETHING NEW EVERY SINGLE DAY.
THE SECOND THING I LIKE TO THINK
ABOUT TO MAKE SURE IT'S A GREAT
DAY IS WE'RE GOING TO HAVE SOME
FUN.
AND THE REASON WHY I'M TELLING
YOU THOSE TWO THINGS IS WE'RE
GOING TO DO BOTH OF THOSE IN OUR
TIME TOGETHER TODAY: LEARN
SOMETHING NEW AND HOPEFULLY HAVE
SOME FUN.
I HOPE YOU'RE READY.
BECAUSE I'M EXCITED AND READY TO
GO.
NOW, BEFORE WE GET STARTED WITH
TODAY'S LEARNING, I WANT TO MAKE
SURE THAT YOU'RE READY AND SET
UP FOR SUCCESS.
NOW, WHEN WE'RE LEARNING FROM
HOME, THAT MEAN AS FEW DIFFERENT
THINGS.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, I WANT TO
MAKE SURE YOU'RE SITTING IN A
PLACE WHERE YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE
AND YOU DON'T HAVE TOO MANY
DISTRACTIONS AROUND YOU.
I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU'RE
SITTING IN A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN
SEE ME, HEAR ME AND NOT MISS ANY
OF MY MESSAGES.
NOW, YOU MIGHT WANT TO SIT
SOMEWHERE COMFY, MAKE SURE YOU
CAN SEE THE SCREEN.
AND LIKE I SAID, YOU DON'T HAVE
TOO MANY DISTRACTIONS AROUND
YOU.
NOW, FOR TODAY'S LEARNING, YOU
WILL NEED SOMETHING YOU CAN
WRITE WITH.
SO AT HOME THAT MIGHT BE A
PENCIL, A MARK OTHER, A CRAYON.
WHATEVER WORKS FOR YOU.
AND YOU ARE GOING TO NEED
SOMETHING TO WRITE ON: A PIECE
OF PAPER, MAYBE YOU HAVE A
FAVOURITE NOTEBOOK.
YOU MIGHT EVEN HAVE A WHITE
BOARD AT HOME.
SOMETHING YOU CAN WRITE WITH,
SOMETHING YOU CAN WRITE ON.
A LITTLE LATER IN TODAY'S
LESSON, I AM GOING TO ASK YOU TO
SAFELY USE SOME SCISSORS AND
SOME GLUE OR SOME TAPE.
SO YOU MIGHT WANT TO TAKE A
SECOND NOW TO MAKE SURE YOU CAN
FIND THOSE AND BRING THEM CLOSE
TO YOU SO YOU'RE READY TO GO FOR
THE LEARNING.
AWESOME.
GIVE ME A THUMBS UP IF YOU ARE
READY TO GO!
NOW, I LOVE TO START ALL
LEARNING WITH QUESTIONS.
SO TODAY I'M GOING TO ASK YOU A
QUESTION.
AND MY QUESTION TODAY IS HAVE
YOU EVER GOTTEN MAIL?
NOW, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT
I LOVE GETTING MAIL.
IF YOU LIVE IN A HOUSE, MAYBE
YOU HAVE A MAILBOX OUTSIDE AND
SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY GOES OUT
EVERY DAY TO CHECK THAT MAILBOX.
IF YOU, LIKE ME, LIVE IN A
BUILDING, MAYBE YOU HAVE A MAIL
ROOM FULL OF LITTLE MAILBOXES
WITH NUMBERS ON IT AND YOU USE
YOUR KEY TO OPEN UP YOUR MAILBOX
AND CHECK YOUR MAIL.
NOW, WE CAN GET TONS OF THINGS
IN THE MAIL.
WE CAN GET LETTERS IN THE MAIL.
AND MAYBE YOU HAVE A FAMILY
MEMBER WHO LIVES FAR AWAY AND
WRITES YOU LETTERS.
IF YOU'RE CELEBRATING SOMETHING
SPECIAL, YOU MIGHT GET CARDS IN
THE MAIL.
THOSE ARE ALWAYS FUN.
YOU MIGHT ALSO GET THINGS LIKE
MAGAZINES, NEWSPAPERS, OR
FLYERS.
BUT IF YOU ARE LIKE ME, YOU GET
EXCITED EVERY TIME YOU GET A
PIECE OF SPECIAL MAIL.
DURING OUR LEARNING TODAY WE'RE
GOING TO TALK ABOUT MAKING
THINGS TO SEND IN THE MAIL, HOW
THINGS GET SENT IN THE MAIL.
AND EVEN A LITTLE BIT OF MATH
THAT MAIL CARRIERS USE EVERY
DAY.
BUT BEFORE WE GET STARTED WITH
THOSE LESSONS, LET'S TOGETHER
CHECK OUT A GREAT EPISODE OF
JOJO AND GRAN GRAN THAT'S GOING
TO GIVE US A LITTLE BIT MORE
INFORMATION ABOUT SENDING MAIL
AND RECEIVING MAIL AND I WILL
SEE YOU AFTER.
ENJOY.

The episode rolls.

In animation, a grandma takes her little granddaughter on a walk on the street.

The name of the show reads "Jojo and Gran Gran."

Gran Gran has curly brown hair in a bun and wears purple trousers, a yellow sweater and a green necklace.

Jojo has curly brown hair in pigtails and wears blue leggings, a blue dress, and a green and blue jacket. She holds a stuffed panda.

They greet their neighbours as they walk.

A song plays that goes JOJO AND GRAN GRAN
TAKE MY HAND
AND COME WITH ME
ON A JOURNEY THROUGH
OUR STREETS
WE'LL SAY HELLO TO
EVERYBODY THAT WE MEET
THROUGH THE YEAR,
AS SEASONS CHANGE
EXPLORING EVERY DAY
TAKE OUR TIME
TO STOP AND PLAY

They walk in the rain and the in the snow, and they make a snowman together.

The song continues AND WHEN THE SPRINGTIME
BLOSSOM
TURN TO SUMMER SUN
JOJO LIKES TO GET OUTSIDE
GRAN GRAN ALWAYS
MAKES IT FUN
WHEN THE AUTUMN RAINFALL
TURNS TO WINTER SNOW
I KNOW A SPECIAL PLACE,
A PLACE WHERE WE CAN GO
TAKE MY HAND,
WE'RE HEADING HOME
WITH JOJO AND GRAN GRAN

Gran Gran joins Jojo in fun activities at the park, like rolling down hill and playing with dry leaves.

The name of the episode reads "It's time to post a picture."

Gran Gran says IT WAS A SPRING
DAY.
THE BLOSSOM WAS ON THE TREES,
THE SUN WAS SHINING, AND GRAN
GRAN-- THAT'S ME-- WAS
COLLECTING HER POST.
(SIGHING)
BILL, BILL, BILL.

In the kitchen, Jojo colours and says MUMMY AND DADDY GET LOTS OF
LETTERS FROM BILL TOO, GRAN
GRAN.
(LAUGHING)

Gran Gran says HOW'S THE PICTURE GOING,
JOJO?

Jojo says I'VE NEARLY FINISHED.
IT'S A PICTURE OF ST. LUCIA, FOR
GREAT GRAN GRAN.
PLEASE CAN I HAVE SOME MORE
STICKY TAPE?

Gran Gran says DOOT!

Gran Gran cuts a piece and sticks it in her nose.

She laughs and says NOT FOR MY NOSE,
GRAN GRAN.
IT'S FOR STICKING THE SUN IN
THE SKY.

Gran Gran says OHH.

Jojo says GREAT GRAN GRAN SAID
IT'S VERY SUNNY IN ST. LUCIA.
CAN WE CALL GREAT GRAN GRAN NOW
AND SHOW HER MY PICTURE?
PLEASE, GRAN GRAN?

Gran Gran says OKAY, LET'S SEE IF SHE'S
HOME.
(TABLET RINGING)
(GIGGLING)

Great Gran Gran hides behind a lizard.

Jojo says HELLO?
GREAT GRAN GRAN?

Great Gran Gran says SHOO, SHOO!
JOJO!
MY LITTLE SUNSHINE.
HOW LOVELY TO SEE YOU.
WHAT ARE YOU UP TO TODAY?

Jojo says I'VE MADE A PICTURE FOR YOU.

Great Gran Gran says AHH, WONDERFUL!
CAN I SEE?

Jojo laughs and says WHY DOES GREAT
GRAN GRAN LOOK FUNNY?
HELLO?
GREAT GRAN GRAN?
HELLO?

Gran Gran says OH, JOJO, IT LOOKS LIKE THE
INTERNET HAS STOPPED WORKING
AGAIN.
I'LL NEED TO ORDER A NEW ONE OF
THESE ROUTER THINGIES.

Jojo says AND THEN WE CAN SHOW MY
PICTURE TO GREAT GRAN GRAN?

Gran Gran says YES, BUT IT WILL TAKE A LONG
TIME FOR THE ROUTER TO GET HERE,
SO YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO SHOW
GREAT GRAN GRAN YOUR PICTURE
TODAY.
(SIGHING IN DISAPPOINTMENT)
BUT THERE IS ANOTHER WAY GREAT
GRAN GRAN CAN SEE YOUR PICTURE.
WE CAN POST IT TO HER!

Now the show turns to real life.

A real girl in a green T-shirt says TO POST A LETTER, YOU HAVE TO
LICK THE ENVELOPE, PUT A STAMP
ON IT, AND THEN WALK ALL THE WAY
TO THE POST BOX AND PUT IT IN.

A real boy with red hair says IF YOU'RE SENDING A LETTER
TO-- TO SOMEBODY, IT MIGHT GO IN
A VAN OR A PLANE OR A CAR.

A real girl with curly brown says YOU'D HAVE TO PUT THE
DESTINATION AND THE COUNTRY SO
THEY KNOW IF THEY HAVE TO SEND
IT ON AN AIRPLANE, AND THE
STREET THAT THE HOUSE IS ON, AND
THE NUMBER SO THEY KNOW HOW TO
GET THERE.

A boy in a striped T-shirt says WHEN IT'S SOMEONE'S BIRTHDAY,
YOU POST THEM A CARD.

A girl with a headband says I SENT A CARD TO SANTA AT
SCHOOL WHEN AN ELF USED TO BE
IN RECEPTION.

The girl with curly brown hair says WELL, I SENT A BIRTHDAY CARD
TO MY COUSIN, 'CAUSE IT WAS HER
BIRTHDAY.

Now the show goes back to animation.

Jojo says COME ON, PANDA!
IT'S TIME TO POST MY PICTURE TO
GREAT GRAN GRAN.

She speaks to a mail box and says HELLO!
CAN YOU HEAR ME, GREAT GRAN
GRAN?
I'M POSTING MY PICTURE TO YOU,
RIGHT NOW!

Gran Gran says OH, WAIT!
WE CAN'T POST YOUR PICTURE YET,
JOJO.

Jojo says OH, WHY NOT?

Gran Gran says BECAUSE IT NEEDS A SPECIAL
STICKER, CALLED A STAMP.

Jojo says WHERE CAN WE GET A STAMP?

Gran Gran says AT THE POST OFFICE.

Jojo says OKAY.
WE'RE GETTING A SPECIAL STICKER
CALLED... A STAMP!
(SIRENS WAILING DISTANTLY)

They walk in the post office.

Jojo says WHAT DO WE DO NOW?

Gran Gran says WE NEED TO TAKE YOUR PICTURE
TO THE NICE LADY BEHIND THE
COUNTER.

Jojo says PLEASE CAN I HAVE A SPECIAL
STAMP TO POST THIS PICTURE TO MY
GREAT GRAN GRAN?
SHE LIVES IN ST. LUCIA.

The lady says OF COURSE.
ONE SPECIAL STAMP COMING RIGHT
UP.

Jojo says THANK YOU!
NOW WE CAN POST IT, AND GREAT
GRAN GRAN WILL SEE IT TODAY!

The lady says UHH, WELL, SHE WON'T SEE IT
TODAY, I'M AFRAID.
UHH, IT WILL TAKE A LONG TIME
FOR YOUR PICTURE TO GET FROM
HERE ALL THE WAY TO ST. LUCIA
IN THE CARIBBEAN.

Jojo says WHY WILL IT TAKE A LONG TIME?

Gran Gran says WELL, YOUR PICTURE HAS A LONG
JOURNEY TO GO ON.
FIRST, IT HAS TO GO TO A SPECIAL
SORTING OFFICE FULL OF SPINNY
AND WHIZZY MACHINES.

The lady at the counter says THEN IT WILL
TRAVEL ON-- ON BIG LORRIES!

Gran Gran says AND FLY ON AN
AEROPLANE!

Jojo says THAT'S A BIG ADVENTURE,
PANDA.

The lady says AND AT THE END OF THAT BIG
ADVENTURE, YOUR PICTURE WILL
ARRIVE AT YOUR GREAT GRAN GRAN'S
HOUSE IN ST. LUCIA!

Back home, Jojo says GRAN GRAN?
I KNOW MY PICTURE WILL TAKE A
LONG TIME TO GET TO GREAT GRAN
GRAN'S HOUSE, BECAUSE IT'S GOING
ON A BIG ADVENTURE.
BUT HOW WILL WE KNOW WHEN IT'S
THERE?

Gran Gran says HMM, I THINK IT'S TIME FOR...
A GRAN GRAN PLAN!

She walks to the fridge and says I'M GOING TO POP THIS STICKER
ON MY CALENDAR.
THEN EVERY DAY YOU CAN MOVE IT,
AND WHEN IT GETS HERE... YOUR
PICTURE SHOULD HAVE ARRIVED
AT GREAT GRAN GRAN'S HOUSE.

At the merry-go-round, Jojo says WHEE!
IS MY PICTURE ON THE WHIZZY
MACHINE NOW, GRAN GRAN?

Gran Gran says MAYBE.

Jojo says I HOPE IT DOESN'T GET DIZZY!

The next day, Gran Gran drops a picture in a cardboard lorry Jojo sits in.

(IMITATING ROBOTIC WHIRRING)

Jojo says IS MY PICTURE ON A LORRY NOW?

Gran Gran says YEP!
OFF YOU GO, YOU'VE GOT A PLANE
TO CATCH.
(IMITATING ENGINE REVVING)
BYE!

The next day, Jojo runs and pretends to be a plane. She says I THINK MY PICTURE'S FLYING
ON A PLANE TODAY, GRAN GRAN!
(IMITATING PLANE ZOOMING)
(LAUGHING)
GRAN GRAN!

The next day, Jojo says I THINK MY PICTURE HAS ARRIVED
AT ST. LUCIA!

Gran Gran says AND THE NEW ROUTER'S HERE, SO
WE CAN CALL GREAT GRAN GRAN
AND SEE IF SHE HAS IT!

Jojo says OH, YES!

(TABLET RINGING)

Great Gran Gran says JOJO, MY LITTLE SUNSHINE!
THERE YOU ARE!

Jojo says GREAT GRAN GRAN!
OUR INTERNET FROZE, SO GRAN GRAN
HAD TO GET A NEW ROUTER THINGY.
AND I POSTED MY PICTURE TO YOU!

Great Gran Gran says AND WHAT A WONDERFUL PICTURE
IT IS!
IT ARRIVED THIS MORNING.

Jojo says DO YOU LIKE IT?

Great Gran Gran says IT'S THE BEST PICTURE OF
ST. LUCIA I HAVE EVER SEEN.
AND, TO SAY THANK YOU, I MADE A
SPECIAL PICTURE FOR YOU TOO!

Jojo says OHH, CAN I SEE IT?

Great Gran Gran says NOT YET.
I SENT IT BY POST!

Jojo and Gran Gran say BY POST?
(SQUEALING IN DELIGHT)

Now the show goes back to real life.

A little girl in pigtail braids says I'M DRAWING A PICTURE
FOR MY FRIEND.
WE'RE GOING TO SEND IT IN THE
POST.

Her Grandma says HAVE YOU FINISHED?

The girl says YEP.

Grandma says OHH, THAT IS BEAUTIFUL.
SHOULD WE PUT IT INTO THE
ENVELOPE?

The girl says YEAH!

Grandma says WE'LL FOLD IT OVER...

The girl says AND WE'LL SLIP IT INTO THE
ENVELOPE.

Grandma says LIFT THAT INTO THE ENVELOPE.
MAKE SURE YOU'VE COMPRESSED IT.

The girl says I'M GOING TO POST MY
LETTER!

Grandma says SO WHERE ARE WE GOING?

The girl says TO THE POST OFFICE TO POST
A PICTURE!

Grandma says OH, THAT SOUNDS GOOD.
LET'S GO THEN, HUH?
SO, WHAT DO WE DO WHEN WE GET TO
THE POST OFFICE?

The girl says WE'RE HERE!

Grandma says WE'RE HERE, YEAH.

The girl says 'CAUSE YOU CAN SEE IT THERE,
"POST OFFICE."

Grandma says YES, IT IS, ISN'T IT?

The cashier says, NUMBER 1 PLEASE.

The girl says I NEED TO BUY A STAMP.
UMM, CAN I PLEASE HAVE A
FIRST-CLASS STAMP?

The cashier says THERE WE GO, THAT'S
YOUR FIRST-CLASS STAMP.
THAT'LL BE TWO PENCE.

The girl says THANK YOU.

The cashier says STICK IT IN THE
CORNER.
WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO POST IT
FOR YOU?

The girl says YES, PLEASE!

The cashier says THANK YOU.

The girl says OFF IT GOES!
IT'S TAKEN TO A SORTING OFFICE.
IT GOES IN SPINNY, WHIZZY
MACHINES.
TO MAKE SURE IT GOES TO THE
RIGHT PLACE, THE POSTIE HAS TO
FIND THE RIGHT HOUSE.
SHE POPS MY LETTER THROUGH THE
LETTERBOX.

A little girl gets the card and says WE GOT SOME POST!

Her dad says ANY IDEA WHO IT'S FROM?

The girl says THE BEST THING ABOUT
POST IS OPENING IT.

A little boy says IT'S A PICTURE THAT'S BEEN
DRAWN BY EVEY.

Dad says THAT'S ALL COOL, INNIT?
SHOULD WE PUT IT ON THE FRIDGE?

Evey says IT'S THE PICTURE
I DREW!
IT'S ARRIVED!

The boy sticks it on the fridge and says IT LOOKS GREAT.

Back to animation, Gran Gran gasps and says IT LOOKS LIKE GREAT
GRAN GRAN'S PICTURE HAS ARRIVED.

Jojo says IT HAS A SPECIAL STAMP!

Gran Gran says BECAUSE IT HAD TO GO TO THE
SPECIAL SORTING OFFICE, FULL OF
SPINNY AND...

Jojo spins and says WHIZZY MACHINES!
(CHUCKLING)

Jojo says IT'S THE BEST PICTURE OF PANDA
I'VE EVER SEEN.
OH, I LOVE THIS PICTURE.
AND I LOVE YOU, GRAN GRAN.

Gran Gran says AWW, I LOVE YOU TOO, JOJO.

Music plays as the end credits roll.

Copyright 2020, BBC Children's productions.

The episode ends.

Joel says WELCOME BACK.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THAT EPISODE
AND YOU LEARNED A FEW THINGS
ABOUT SENDING AND GETTING THINGS
IN THE MAIL.
THAT EPISODE ACTUALLY INSPIRED
ME.
AND I WANT TO SPEND SOME TIME
TOGETHER THINKING ABOUT AND
LEARNING ABOUT HOW TO WRITE A
LETTER.
I KNOW WE'RE ALL AT HOME RIGHT
NOW.
SO IT MIGHT BE A GREAT TIME TO
THINK ABOUT SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL
IN YOUR LIFE WHO YOU WOULD LIKE
TO WRITE A LETTER TO.
NOW, FOR LETTER WRITING THERE
ARE A FEW REALLY IMPORTANT
STEPS.

He shows a template with the word "Dear blank" at the beginning an "Fro blank" at the end.

He says AND LIKE ANY BIG JOB, IT'S SO
IMPORTANT THAT WE DO THOSE STEPS
IN ORDER.
I ASKED YOU EARLIER TODAY TO
MAKE SURE YOU HAD HAD SOMETHING
TO WRITE WITH.
AND A PIECE OF PAPER OR A
NOTEBOOK.
I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO GRAB
THOSE NOW.
BECAUSE TOGETHER, WE'RE GOING TO
START THE FIRST FEW STEPS OF
WRITING A LETTER.
I'M GOING TO HOLD UP MY LETTER
AND YOU MIGHT NOTICE A FEW
THINGS.
YOU MIGHT NOTICE THAT I'VE
ALREADY GOTTEN STARTED WITH TWO
WORDS AND TWO BLANKS.
WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THOSE
WORDS AND THOSE BLANKS.
BECAUSE THOSE MIGHT BE THE MOST
IMPORTANT PART OF A LETTER.
THE FIRST WORD YOU'LL SEE UP
HERE D-E-A-R SAYS "DEAR."
I WOULD LIKE YOU TO GO AHEAD AND
WRITE THAT WORD AT THE TOP OF
YOUR PAPER.
JUST LIKE I DID.
D-E-A-R.
AND WE USE THE WORD "DEAR" IN A
LETTER TO SAY WHO THIS LETTER IS
GOING TO, OKAY?
DEAR IS A FANCY WAY TO SAY "TO."
I LEFT A BLANK HERE.
I LEFT A LINE.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO DRAW A LINE.
IF YOU'D LIKE TO YOU CAN.
BUT FOR NOW WE'RE GOING TO LEAVE
THAT SPACE BLANK.
WE'RE GOING TO COME BACK TO THAT
SPACE IN A SECOND BUT I'M GOING
TO HAVE YOU GO TO THE VERY
BOTTOM OF YOUR LETTER.
BECAUSE I TOLD YOU THIS WORD,
D-E-A-R, "DEAR" IS ONE OF THE
MOST IMPORTANT PARTS OF A
LETTER.
HERE IS THE NEXT IMPORTANT PART
OF A LETTER.
F-R-O-M.
THAT IS "FROM."
AND THAT TELLS THE LETTER YOU'RE
WRITING WHO GETS THE LETTER WHO
IT'S FROM.
IF I LEFT THIS OFF, MY FRIEND OR
FAMILY MEMBER WILL READ THIS
BEAUTIFUL LETTER BUT THEY'RE
GOING TO WONDER WHO WROTE IT TO
THEM.
THEY WON'T KNOW.
JUST LIKE WE WROTE D-E-A-R,
DEAR, AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE
NOW I WILL ASK YOU TO GO TO THE
BOTTOM AND WRITE THAT WORD
F-R-O-M, FROM.
YOU NOTICE I LEFT A SPACE THERE.
I'M TO GO AHEAD AND FILL IN THAT
SPACE WITH MY NAME.
BUT MAKE SURE YOU'RE PAYING
ATTENTION.
YOU'RE NOT GOING TO PUT MY NAME
THERE, YOU ARE GOING TO PUT YOUR
NAME.
YOUR LETTER IS NOT GOING TO BE
FROM ME.
IT'S GOING TO BE FROM YOU.
SO ONES WRITTEN AT THE TOP LEFT
LITTLE SPACE AND AT THE BOTTOM
AND LEFT LITTLE SPACE.
FIRST THING I'M GOING TO HAVE
YOU FILL IN IS THAT SPACE BESIDE
THE WORD "FROM."
THERE IS WHERE YOU ARE GOING TO
WRITE YOUR NAME.
REMEMBER, IF YOU LEAVE THAT PART
OFF, THE PERSON WHO GETS YOUR
LETTER WILL BE WONDERING WHO
GAVE THIS TO ME.
SO GO AHEAD AND FILL IN YOUR
NAME BESIDE THE "FROM."
I'VE GOT MINE THERE.
YOU CAN NOW SEE MY LETTER IS
FROM JOEL.
THAT'S AN IMPORTANT PIECE OF
INFORMATION YOU NEED TO PUT ON
EVERY LETTER YOU SEND.
NOW, HERE'S WHERE I WANT YOU TO
THINK.
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEND YOUR
LETTER TO?
I MENTIONED A LITTLE EARLIER
WE'RE ALL AT HOME NOW.
MAYBE THERE'S A FAMILY MEMBER OR
A FRIEND WHO YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IN
A WHILE THAT YOU'RE MISSING.
AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEND A
LETTER TO THEM.
NOW, I HAVE A VERY GOOD FRIEND
NAMED MAGGIE.
AND MAGGIE HAS A SON NAMED
LARRY.
AND I KNOW THAT LARRY HAS
WATCHED POWER HOUR OF LEARNING
BEFORE.
SO I THINK I'M GOING TO WRITE MY
LETTER TO LARRY.
THE FIRST THING I'M GOING TO DO
IS GO BACK TO THE TOP OF MY PAGE
AND FIND THAT WORD D-E-A-R.
DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT THAT WORD
SAYS?
THAT WORD SAYS "DEAR."
REMEMBER, THAT'S LIKE A FANCY
WAY TO SAY "TO."
WHO THE LETTER IS FOR.
I'M GOING TO WRITE LARRY'S NAME
NEXT TO IT.
AND ARE YOU GOING TO WRITE THE
NAME OF WHO YOU ARE WRITING YOUR
LETTER TO NEXT TO IT.
YOU CAN SEE I'VE FILLED THAT IN.
WE'VE GOT DEAR LARRY, FROM JOEL.
BUT IT HAVE BEEN KIDS, I HAVE A
QUESTION: DO YOU THINK MY
LETTER IS FINISHED?
NO.
YOU'VE PROBABLY NOTICED THERE'S
A BIG EMPTY SPACE IN THE MIDDLE.
AND WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT
THAT NOW.
I TOLD YOU THAT EVERY LETTER
NEEDS WHO'S FOR AT THE TOP, WHO
IT'S FROM AT THE BOTTOM.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL.
THIS WOULDN'T BE A VERY
INTERESTING LETTER FOR LARRY.
EVERY LETTER NEEDS A MESSAGE.
NOW, WHEN YOU'RE WRITING A
MESSAGE IN THE LETTER, THERE ARE
A FEW THINGS YOU MIGHT THINK
ABOUT.
WE CAN USE LETTERS TO GIVE
PEOPLE INFORMATION.
SO I MIGHT, IN MY LETTER TO
LARRY, GIVE HIM SOME INFORMATION
AND SAY HELLO, LARRY, TODAY IS
WEDNESDAY AND I'M WRITING YOU A
LETTER FROM MY HOUSE.
WE CAN ALSO USE LETTERS TO SEND
PEOPLE SPECIAL MESSAGES.
SO I KNOW THAT LARRY'S BIRTHDAY
IS COMING UP.
SO I MIGHT SAY I'M WISHING YOU A
HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY.
AND WE CAN ALSO USE LETTERS TO
ASK QUESTIONS.
TO GET MORE INFORMATION FROM THE
PERSON WE'RE SENDING THE LETTER
TO.
AND THE NICE THING ABOUT ASKING
A QUESTION IN A LETTER IS IT
MIGHT INSPIRE THAT PERSON TO
ANSWER OUR QUESTION BY SENDING
US A LETTER BACK.
SO I MIGHT SAY TO LARRY: LARRY,
ARE THERE ANY BOOKS YOU'RE
HOPING TO GET FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY?
BECAUSE I KNOW LARRY LOVES
LOOKING AT BOOKS.
NOW, WE'RE NOT GOING TO FILL IN
THIS MESSAGE RIGHT NOW BECAUSE
WE'VE GOT MORE LEARNING AND FUN
TO DO... ALL ABOUT MAIL.
BUT I'M HOPING YOU HAVE FILLED
OUT WHO YOUR LETTER IS TO AND
WHO YOUR LETTER IS FROM.
REMEMBER, THAT'S YOU.
AND AFTER TODAY'S EPISODE, YOU
CAN COME BACK AND FILL IN THAT
MESSAGE.
THINK ABOUT WHAT SPECIAL KIND
WORDS YOU MIGHT WANT TO SAY TO
THIS PERSON.
ANY NEW AND EXCITING UPDATES YOU
MIGHT WANT TO TELL THEM.
AND, OF COURSE, ANY QUESTION YOU
MIGHT WANT TO ASK.
THAT'S THE MESSAGE.
AND WE'RE GOING TO FINISH THAT A
LITTLE BIT LATER TODAY.
SO FOR NOW, YOU'RE GOING TO SET
THAT ASIDE.
BECAUSE WRITING THE LETTER IS
ONLY HALF THE JOB.
ONCE I'VE WRITTEN THAT LETTER,
WE NEED TO FIND A WAY TO GET IT
TO THE PERSON WE'RE SENDING IT
TO.
AND THAT'S WHEN MAIL DELIVERY
COMES IN AND WHEN WE TALK ABOUT
MAIL DELIVERY, WE THINK ABOUT
POSTAL WORKERS.
MAIL CARRIERS.
TOGETHER, LET'S CHECK OUT AN
EPISODE OF CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT.
THAT'S GOING TO TELL US A LITTLE
BIT MORE ABOUT THESE AWESOME
HUMANS WHO HELP DELIVER OUR
MAIL.
I'LL SEE YOU IN A BIT.
ENJOY.

Zoe is around 7, with long brown hair in braids and wears a pink sweater.

The opening sequence rolls.

In animation, kids in different professions costumes interact with cartoons.

The theme song plays IMAGINE, IMAGINE...
IMAGINE POWERFUL,
IMAGINE COLOURFUL,
IMAGINE MAGICAL.
CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT?

The name of the show reads "Can you imagine that! Starring Zoe."

Zoe paints herself as a mail carrier and says HI, I'M ZOE.
IF I CAN BE ANYTHING I WILL BE A
MAIL CARRIER.

Zoe interacts with animated backgrounds and says says HI, I AM ZOE.
IF I CAN BE ANYTHING, I WILL BE
A MAIL CARRIER.
I WOULD DELIVER MAIL TO PEOPLE'S
HOUSES AND WORK.
I'LL HAVE A SPECIAL KEY.
THAT UNLOCKS THE MAILBOX.
INSIDE THERE WILL BE ALL THE
MAIL THAT COMES FROM THE POST
OFFICE TO BE DELIVERED.
AT THE POST OFFICE, I'LL SORT
ALL THE MAIL THAT COMES IN.
I'LL PUT ALL THE LETTERS IN ONE
PILE.
AND ALL THE PACKAGES IN ANOTHER
PILE.
I'LL SORT ALL THE LETTERS BY
COMMUNITY, CITY AND COUNTRY!
THE RED ONES ARE VERY SPECIAL
LETTERS.
THEY'RE THE LETTERS FOR SANTA!
THEY'LL GO IN A REALLY BIG PILE!
I'LL ALSO SORT THE MAIL BY WHAT
COUNTRIES THEY WILL BE GOING TO.
SOME OF THE MAIL WILL BE
DELIVERED TO OTHER COUNTRIES BY
BOAT.
AND SOME MAIL WILL GO BY
AIRPLANE.
AS A MAIL CARRIER, I'M GET TO
SEE THE WHOLE WORLD.
BY DELIVERING MAIL TO OTHER
COUNTRIES.
SOME PLACES WILL BE WARM!
SOME PLACES WILL BE FREEZING
COLD!

Zoe shivers in the North Pole and says BRRR!
BUT EVERYWHERE IN THE WORLD
PEOPLE NEED TO GET THEIR MAIL.

She honks her jeep in Africa and says I'LL DELIVER MAIL TO THE
TOP FLOOR OF A SUPER TALL
BUILDING.
AND EVEN DOWN TO SECRET
UNDERGROUND LAB.
WHENEVER I DELIVER AN IMPORTANT
PACKAGE, I NEED TO GET A
SIGNATURE!
AND I'LL DELIVER THE MAIL TO
COMMUNITY MAILBOXES.
SOMETIMES KIDS LIKE JIMMY WILL
COME BY AND PICK UP THE MAIL FOR
HIS FAMILY.
IF I WERE A MAIL CARRIER, I'LL
GET LOTS OF EXERCISE.
I'LL WALK FROM STREET TO STREET
AND DELIVER TO ALL THE HOUSES.
NO MATTER WHAT THE WEATHER, I'LL
BE SURE TO GET YOUR LETTER TO
YOU ON TIME!
IT MIGHT BE AN INVITATION TO
YOUR GRAND DAD'S SURPRISE PARTY!
HOORAY!

A song plays that says CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING ANYTHING
YOU WANT TO BE
CAN YOU IMAGINE THERE'S A
WORLD FULL OF FANTASY
AND IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT LOTS
IT BECOMES SO REAL
DID YOU KNOW, DID YOU KNOW,
DID YOU KNOW
THAT YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU
WANT TO DO
IMAGINE THIS OR THAT
THINK OF SOMETHING NEW
AND YOU CAN ALWAYS THINK A
THING OR TWO
ANYTHING YOU WANT IT'S REALLY
UP TO YOU
BOP, BOP, BOP, BOP, BOP
BOP, BOP,BOP, BOP
BOP, BOP, BOP,BOP,BOP, BOP
BOP, BOP, BOP, BOP, BOP, BOP
BOP, BOP, BOP
CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT.

Zoe says I'M ZOE AND I'LL A MAIL
CARRIER.
IMAGINE THAT!

Music plays as the end credits roll.

Back to Joel, he says WELCOME BACK.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THAT EPISODE
AND LEARNED A FEW IMPORTANT
THINGS ABOUT MAIL CARRIERS.
THE PEOPLE WHO DELIVER OUR MAIL.
I WAS INSPIRED BY THAT SHOW TO
USE OUR IMAGINATION AND PRETEND
WE ARE MAIL CARRIERS.
SO LET'S GET READY TOGETHER.
TO PRETEND WE'RE MAIL CARRIERS,
LET'S FIRST IMAGINE WE'RE
PUTTING ON OUR BEST PAIR OF
WALKING SHOES.
BECAUSE LIKE WE SAW IN THAT
CLIP, MAIL CARRIERS DO A LOT OF
WALKING TO MAKE SURE ALL THAT
MAIL GETS DELIVERED.
SO GO AHEAD AND PUT ON ONE
IMAGINARY WALKING SHOE.
TIE IT UP.
PUT ON YOUR SECOND.
IMAGINARY WALKING SHOE.
AND TIE IT NICE AND TIGHT.
AWESOME MAIL CARRIERS WE'RE
ALMOST READY.
THE NEXT THING WE NEED IS A NICE
BIG HAT.
WE'RE GOING TO IMAGINE IT'S A
NICE SUNNY DAY.
AND WE'RE GOING TO USE THAT HAT
TO SHADE OUR EYES AND MAKE SURE
WE CAN SEE ALL THE HOUSE NUMBERS
WE NEED TO DELIVER TO.
ALL RIGHT, MAIL CARRIERS.
WE'RE ALMOST READY.
THE LAST THING WE NEED, THE MOST
IMPORTANT ONE OF ALL IS OUR MAIL
DELIVERY BAG.
SO LET'S PRETEND THIS BAG HAS
ONE STRAP.
WE'RE GOING TO PUT IT OVER OUR
HEAD.
RESTING ON OUR SHOULDER AND
LET'S FILL IT UP WITH OUR MAIL.
I HOPE YOU'RE FEELING STRONG
TODAY BECAUSE THIS MAIL BAG IS
GOING TO GET HEAVY.
FILL IT UP WITH MAIL.
WE'VE GOT OUR WALKING SHOES ON.
WE'VE GOT OUR SUN HAT TO PROTECT
OUR EYES AND MOST IMPORTANTLY,
WE'VE GOT THAT MAIL BAG.
WE'RE READY TO DELIVER.
NOW, LET'S USE OUR IMAGINATION
AND PRETEND WE'RE DELIVERING
MAIL JUST LIKE THE MAIL CARRIERS
IN THAT SHOW WE JUST WATCHED.
I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU A NUMBER
TOOL.
THIS IS A NUMBER TOOL THAT MAYBE
YOU'VE SEEN BEFORE AT SCHOOL.
IT HELPS US WITH SOME COUNTING
AND TODAY I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW IT CAN HELP US DELIVER THIS
MAIL.
THIS LEARNING TOOL IS CALLED A
NUMBER LINE.
MAYBE YOU'VE SEEN IT BEFORE.
BUT IF YOU HAVEN'T, YOU CAN
PROBABLY GUESS WHY IT'S CALLED A
NUMBER LINE.
WELL, THE FIRST THING I NOTICED
IS THAT THERE'S A LINE.
AND ALL ALONG THIS LINE ARE
NUMBER THE.
NOW, RULE' PROBABLY NOTICE IF
YOU LOOK CLOSELY, THAT THERE'S
ALSO AN ARROW.
ON EACH SIDE OF THIS NUMBER
LINE.
AND THOSE ARROWS REMIND US THAT
IF I HAD MORE SPACE AND A BIGGER
PIECE OF PAPER, THIS NUMBER LINE
ACTUALLY KEEPS GOING.
BOTH WAYS.
OKAY?
NUMBER LINES DON'T STOP.
WE'RE LOOKING AT THIS SECTION OF
A NUMBER LINE.
BUT IF I CONTINUED IT ON THIS
WAY THERE WOULD BE MORE NUMBERS.
AND IF I CONTINUED IT ON THIS
WAY THERE WOULD BE EVEN MORE
NUMBERS.
NOW, WE'RE GOING TO USE OUR
IMAGINATION AND PRETEND THAT
EVERY STOP ON THIS NUMBER LINE
IS A HOUSE WE'RE DELIVERING MAIL
TO.
SO IF YOU LIVE ON A STREET WITH
LOTS OF HOUSES, YOU KNOW THAT
EVERY HOUSE HAS A NUMBER ON IT.
IF YOU LIVE IN A BUILDING, LIKE
I DO, YOU KNOW THAT AS YOU WALK
DOWN YOUR HALLWAY, YOU SEE ALL
THE DIFFERENT APARTMENT DOORS
AND THEY ALSO HAVE NUMBERS ON
IT.
SO THE FIRST STOP THAT WE'RE
DELIVERING TO IS HOUSE NUMBER 7E
OR APARTMENT NUMBER 7.
THEY'RE GOING TO GET ONE
ENVELOPE PUT IN THEIR MAILBOX.
WE CONTINUE ON OUR WAY.
NUMBER 8.
NUMBER 9.
NUMBER 10.
AND YOU'LL NOTICE THERE'S
SOMETHING MISSING HERE.
WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO COME
BACK TO THIS IN A LITTLE WHILE.
LET'S KEEP GOING.
WE'VE GOT HOUSE NUMBER 12 TO
DELIVER MAIL TO.
HOUSE NUMBER 13.
HOUSE NUMBER 14.
HOUSE NUMBER 15.
AND... WAIT A SECOND... WE'VE
GOT ONE MORE MISSING NUMBER
HERE.
SO BEFORE WE CAN FINISH OUR JOB
OF DELIVERING MAIL TO ALL THESE
HOUSES, WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT
TOGETHER WHAT HOUSES ARE MISSING
HERE.
WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY
GET THEIR MAIL.
NOW, TO DO THIS WE'RE GOING TO
DO TWO THINGS.
THE FIRST THING WE'RE GOING TO
DO IS FIGURE OUT THE PATTERN
THAT IS BEING USED ON THIS
NUMBER LINE.
AND WHEN I SAY "WHAT PATTERN IS
BEING USED ON THIS NUMBER LINE,"
WE NEED TO DISCOVER HOW MUCH IS
GOING UP EACH STOP.
SO WE START WITH 7 AND THE NEXT
STOP ON THIS NUMBER LINE TAKES
US ALL THE WAY UP TO 8.
THE NEXT STOP ON THIS NUMBER
LINE TAKES US UP TO NUMBER 9.
HOW MUCH IS IT GOING UP EACH
TIME?
HAVE YOU FIGURED IT OUT?
THE PATTERN ON THIS NUMBER LINE
IS THAT EACH STOP ON THE NUMBER
LINE INCREASES OUR NUMBER BY
ONE.
WE STARTED AT 7, WE GO UP BY 1.
WE COUNT UP BY 1.
WE MADE IT TO 8.
WE COUNT UP BY 1, WE MADE IT TO
9.
SO WE'VE DISCOVERED THE PATTERN
OF THIS NUMBER LINE.
THE NEXT STEP FOR SOLVING FOR
THESE MISSING NUMBERS IS TO USE
THAT PATTERN TO FILL IN THE
BLANKS.
SO IF WE KNOW THAT EACH TIME
THIS NUMBER LINE GOES UP BY...
DO YOU REMEMBER?
ONE!
YOU GOT IT.
7, 8, 9.
WE GO UP TO 10.
HMM.
IF WE GO UP BY ONE MORE, IT'S
GOING TO HELP US KNOW WHAT
NUMBER GOES HERE.
NOW, IF I HAVE 10 AND I COUNT
ONE MORE, SHOUT IT OUT IF YOU
THINK YOU KNOW!
I'LL GET TO HOUSE NUMBER?
ELEVEN!
IS THAT WHAT YOU SAID?
LET'S SEE.
ONE MORE MAKES 12.
ONE MORE MAKES 13.
ONE MORE MAKES 14.
LOOKING GOOD SO FAR.
ONE MORE MAKES 15.
WAIT A SECOND.
WE HAVE ONE MORE MISSING HOUSE.
COUNT ON FROM 15.
ONE MORE MAKES... SHOUT IT OUT
IF YOU'VE GOT IT!
NUMBER 16!
GOOD JOB, MAIL CARRIERS.
WE WERE ABLE TO DELIVER MAIL TO
EVERY HOUSE ON THIS STREET.
NOW, NOT ALL HOUSE NUMBERS HAVE
THE SAME PATTERN.
WE USED THAT LAST NUMBER LINE TO
SEE WHAT HAPPEN WHEN WE COUNT UP
EVERY TIME BY ONE.
BUT I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO LOOK
VERY CLOSELY AT THIS NEXT NUMBER
LINE.
YOU'LL NOTICE IT'S A LITTLE
DIFFERENT.
THIS NUMBER LINE STARTS WITH 32.
HMM.
AND THEN WE'VE GOT A BLANK RIGHT
AWAY.
HMM.
PRETTY TRICKY.
WE'RE NOT GOING TO WORRY ABOUT
THAT RIGHT NOW.
WE'RE GOING TO KEEP COUNTING AND
THAT WILL HELP GIVE US SOME MORE
INFORMATION.
THE NEXT NUMBER WE SEE IS 36.
38.
THE NEXT HOUSE ON OUR MAIL
DELIVERY ROUTE UP THE NUMBER
LINE IS HOUSE NUMBER 40.
OH, OH, WE'VE GOT ANOTHER
MISSING HOUSE.
WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO FIGURE
THAT OUT TO DELIVER OUR MAIL.
THE NEXT HOUSE IS NUMBER 44.
46, 48 AND 50.
NOW, I'M NOT SURE THAT THIS
PATTERN ON THIS NUMBER LINE IS
GOING UP BY ONE.
IF THAT WAS THE CASE, WE
PROBABLY WOULD SEE 44, 45, 46,
47.
BUT THAT'S NOT EXACTLY WHAT'S
HAPPENING HERE.
LOOK CLOSELY.
AND THINK IF YOU CAN FIGURE OUT
WHAT PATTERN DO WE SEE HERE.
HOW MUCH IS EACH NUMBER
INCREASING OR GETTING GREATER
FOR EACH STOP ON THE NUMBER
LINE?
TAKE A LOOK.
I SEE 44 GOING UP TO 46.
GOING UP TO 48.
GOING UP TO 50.
HAVE YOU FOUND THE PATTERN?
ON THIS STREET, WE'RE COUNTING
BY TWOS!
EACH STOP ON THE NUMBER LINE
INCREASES OR GETS GREATER BY
TWO.
NOW, LIKE WE DID ON THE LAST
STREET OF DELIVERING MAIL WE CAN
USE THAT INFORMATION TO THINK
ABOUT WHAT HOUSES ARE MISSING.
IF WE KNOW THAT EACH STOP ON THE
NUMBER LINE INCREASES BY TWO, WE
CAN USE THAT INFORMATION HERE.
THE FIRST STOP IS HOUSE NUMBER
32.
LET'S COUNT ON FROM 32.
BUT THIS TIME DON'T JUST GO UP
BY ONE.
OUR PATTERN IS GOING UP BY TWO.
WE'RE AT 32.
WE COUNT ON TWO MORE.
WE SAY 33.
30... 34.
THANK GOODNESS.
THAT HOUSE NUMBER 34 WILL GET
ITS MAIL DELIVERED TODAY.
CAN YOU HELP ME SOLVE FOR THIS
BLANK?
REMEMBER, OUR PATTERN IS
COUNTING BY TWO.
COUNT WITH ME: 32, 34, 36, 38,
40, TWO MORE MAKES... SHOUT IT
OUT IF YOU KNOW!
HOUSE NUMBER 42!
MAKE SURE YOU DELIVER THAT MAIL.
WE FIGURED OUT ALL THE HOUSES ON
THIS STREET THAT NEED THE MAIL.
NOW, I'M GOING TO HOLD UP ONE
MORE NUMBER LINE AND YOU ARE
GOING TO SEE IF YOU CAN SOLVE
THIS ONE AT HOME.
IT'S A DIFFERENT PATTERN THAN
THE LAST TWO.
FIRST WE SAW COUNTING BY ONES.
THEN WE SAW COUNTING BY TWOS.
IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY AT THIS
NUMBER LINE, YOU'LL NOTICE
SOMETHING'S A LITTLE DIFFERENT
HERE.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO JOT THESE
NUMBERS DOWN IN FRONT OF YOU ON
YOUR PIECE OF PAPER.
THIS NUMBER LINE STARTS WITH 85.
WE GO TO 90.
LEAVE A BLANK.
WE GO TO 100.
WE GO TO 105.
WE GO TO 110.
115.
ANOTHER BLANK.
125.
AND LASTLY, WE SEE HOUSE NUMBER
130.
THESE HOUSE NUMBERS ARE GETTING
HIGHER.
I'M GOING TO HAVE YOU JOT THIS
ONE DOWN AND LATER TODAY YOU CAN
GO BACK TO THIS NUMBER LINE AND
JUST LIKE WE DID ON THE LAST
TWO, FIRST SEE IF YOU CAN FIGURE
OUT THE PATTERN.
HOW ARE WE COUNTING ON THIS
NUMBER LINE?
AND SECOND, USE THAT PATTERN TO
SEE IF YOU CAN FIGURE OUT WHAT
HOUSE NUMBERS ARE MISSING.
AND THEN, JUST LIKE THE GREAT
MAIL CARRIERS YOU ARE, YOU'RE
GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL THE
HOUSES ON THIS NUMBER LINE
STREET GET THEIR MAIL DELIVERED
TO THEM.
NOW, WE'VE BEEN SPENDING ALL OF
OUR TIME TOGETHER TODAY TALKING
ABOUT THE BIG IDEA OF MAIL.
SENDING MAIL, GETTING MAIL.
WRITING MAIL.
AND DELIVERING MAIL.
NOW, WHEN I WRITE THE WORD MAIL,
I WRITE M-A- I-L.
THIS SPELLS "MAIL" LIKE THE MAIL
WE'VE BEEN GETTING TODAY.
BUT YOUR EARS MAY BE BUZZING.
BECAUSE YOU MAY HAVE HEARD THE
WORD MAIL A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY.
SOMETIMES YOU MIGHT SEE OR HEAR
THIS WORD... M-A-L-E.
THAT ALSO SAYS MALE.
BUT IT'S NOT M-A-I-L, LIKE THE
MAIL WE SEND.
THIS WORD, WHICH ALSO SOUNDS THE
SAME, IT SAYS MALE, IT MEANS
SOMETHING ELSE.
THIS WORD, MALE, IS A WORD WE
MIGHT USE TO DESCRIBE THOSE WHO
IDENTIFY AS A BOY OR A MAN.
AND SIMILARLY, THOSE WHO
IDENTIFY AS A GIRL OR A WOMAN
MIGHT USE THE WORD "FEMALE."
THIS WORD "MALE" MALE.
MAIL.
MALE, MAIL.
THEY SOUND THE SAME.
THEY DON'T LOOK THE SAME.
AND THEY DON'T MEAN THE SAME
THING.
NOW, WE ALSO STARTED WRITING OUR
LETTERS WITH THIS WORD.
YOU'LL REMEMBER THIS: D-E-A-R.
THAT WORD SAYS "DEAR."
AND LIKE WE LEARNED TODAY, THIS
IS WHAT YOU USE WHEN YOU'RE
WRITING A LETTER.
IT TELLS US WHO THE LETTER IS T.
BUT YOUR EARS MIGHT BE BUZZING,
BECAUSE MAYBE YOU'VE ALSO HEARD
THE WORD DEER LIKE THIS BEFORE:
D-E-E-R.
DEER, DEAR.
THIS ONE, D-E-E-R IS AN ANIMAL
YOU MIGHT KNOW.
IF YOU LIVE NEAR A FOREST MAYBE
YOU'VE SEEN THIS ANIMAL, THE
DEER BEFORE.
DEER, DEAR.
THEY SOUND THE SAME!
THEY DON'T LOOK THE SAME.
AND THEY DON'T MEAN THE SAME
THING.
DID YOU KNOW WE HAD A SPECIAL
WORD FOR THESE SORT OF WORDS?
WORDS THAT SOUND THE SAME BUT
MEAN DIFFERENT THINGS?
AND THAT WORD IS HOMONYM.
TOGETHER, LET'S CHECK OUT THIS
EPISODE SIDE OF WACKY WORD SHOW
THAT'S GOING TO TEACH US EVEN
MORE ABOUT WORDS THAT SOUND THE
SAME.
HOMONYM.
I'M SEE YOU IN A BIT.
ENJOY!

Zoey plays the ukulele in the attic.

Zoey is in her early teens, with long wavy brown hair and wears red trousers, a printed yellow shirt and a denim jacket.

As colourful animated letters form the name "The Wacky Word Show," a song plays that says IT'S THE WACKY WACKY WORD
SHOW.
THE WACKY WACKY WORD SHOW.
THE WACKY WORD SHOW.
SO WACKY.

Zoey and Lukas dance in the attic.

Lukas is around 11, with short straight brown hair and wears jeans and a gray and greens sweater.

Zoey says IT'S ME ZOEY.

Lukas says I'M LUKAS.

Zoey says WE PLAY WITH WORDS.

In animation, a dictionary walks around the Earth as Lukas and Zoey dance on the Moon.

Lukas says HAVE LOTS OF FUN.

Zoey says ON THE WACKY WORD
SHOW FUN IS NUMBER 1.

As they play the ukulele, animate musical notes come out and the word "Fun" appears in colourful animated letters.

Zoey says NOW WE LOVE BOOKS AND
STORIES.

Lukas jumps inside a dictionary and Zoey closes it.

Lukas says MAKE STUFF UP THAT'S
WHAT WE DO.

Zoey says DID WE MENTION ACTING
WACKY?

They both say YEAH WE DO THAT TOO.

Zoey says WE GOT TONS OF
GUESTS AND BOOBOO BOT.

Different kids appear on several screens.

Booboo Bot is a robot made out of an old typewriter as the body and a tablet as the head.

Lukas says GAMES AND JOKES WITH
YOU.

The song continues IT'S THE WACKY WACKY WORD
SHOW.
THE WACKY WACKY WORD SHOW.
THE WACKY WORD SHOW.
HERE WE GO.

Lukas and Zoey run along with the animated letters.

The song continues THE WACKY WORD SHOW.
SO WACKY!

Zoey and Lukas wear each other's faces on a stick.

Zoey says HI EVERYONE.
I'M LUKAS'S TWIN.

Lukas says AND I'M ZOEY'S TWIN.
(laughing)

Lukas says OH YEAH,
STRIKE A POSE.

Zoey says OH YEAH.
NOW WE'RE GONNA
DO A DANCE AND
GONNA DO...AND
THEN THAT.
YOU KNOW IT WOULD
BE REALLY FUN TO HAVE
A REAL TWIN.
IT'S KIND OF LIKE
HAVING ANOTHER
YOU OUT THERE.

A caption reads "Yeah, yeah."

Lukas says A BUILT IN BEST FRIEND FOR LIFE.

Zoey says WE SAW A BUNCH OF VIDEOS ONLINE
THAT SHOWED US TWIN FESTIVALS
ALL OVER THE WORLD WHERE
TONS OF TWINS COME TOGETHER.

Lukas says MOST OF THOSE TWINS ARE
IDENTICAL TWINS WHICH MEANS THEY
USUALLY LOOK A LOT ALIKE.

Zoey says OTHER TWINS ARE
CALLED FRATERNAL TWINS.
THEY CAN LOOK A LIKE BUT NOT
USUALLY AS MUCH AS IDENTICAL
TWINS.

Lukas says I BET YOU COULD PULL OFF SOME
AWESOME PRANKS WHEN YOU'RE AN
IDENTICAL TWIN.

Zoey says THE SAME WAY YOU CAN MAKE JOKES
OR PUNS WITH TWIN WORDS THAT
SOUND THE SAME BUT
HAVE DIFFERENT MEANINGS.

Lukas says HERE'S ONE.
WHY ARE
FISH SO SMART?

Zoey says WHY?

Lukas says BECAUSE THEY LIVE IN SCHOOLS.
GET IT?

The caption changes to "Laughter."

Lukas says A GROUP OF FISH IS
CALLED A SCHOOL.

Zoey says AND A SCHOOL IS ALSO THE
PLACE WHERE YOU LEARN STUFF.

Lukas says ONE SOUND.
ONE SPELLING.
TWO DIFFERENT
MEANINGS.

Zoey says THAT'S CALLED
A HOMONYM.
ANOTHER FUN KIND OF TWIN
WORD IS CALLED A HOMOPHONE.

Lukas says LIKE THE PAUSE BUTTON ON YOUR
REMOTE CONTROL AND THE PAUSE ON
YOUR DOG.

Zoey says ONE SOUND, TWO SPELLINGS
AND TWO DIFFERENT MEANINGS.

Lukas says GET READY FOR DOUBLE
THE FUN ON TODAY'S SHOW.

They appear on split screens.

Zoey says WE'RE GONNA BE TWINNING.
LET'S GET TO IT.

Lukas says ON THE DOUBLE.

Against an animated background with cartoon characters, Zoey sings WHEN YOU'RE A
HOMONYM OR A HOMOPHONE.
YOU ARE A TWIN AND
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Letters H sing WE ARE NOT ALONE.
WE ARE NOT ALONE.

Zoey sings READ A TALE ABOUT A TAIL AND
YOU'RE ON THE RIGHT TRAIL.
A SOUND A LIKE WORD'S AN
ACTION FOR YOUR SATISFACTION.

Letters H sing WE ARE VERY COOL.

Zoey sings STEP ON THE BRAKE
TO TAKE A BREAK.
THEN SHAKE.

Letters H sing SHAKE.
SHAKE.

Zoey sings DID A DOG BARK UP A TREE OR
DID THE TREE BARK BACK AT ME?
SOUND ALIKE WORDS ARE FUN.
THEY CAN BE TWO OR
THEY CAN BE ONE.

Letters H sing WE ARE FUN FUN FUN FUN FUN.

Zoey sings WITH SOME HOMONYMS
AND SOME HOMOPHONES.
THEY ARE TWINS AND
THEY ARE NOT ALONE.

Letters H sing WE ARE NOT ALONE.

Lukas stands next to a TV and says HEY.
WHAT DO YOU CALL
A SLEEPING BULL?
A BULLDOZER.
I LOVE MAKING PUNS
WITH WORDS THAT CAN HAVE TWO
DIFFERENT MEANINGS.
HEY GUYS.

Kids appear on the TV screen.

A girl with curly hair says HI LUKAS.

Lukas says LET'S HEAR SOME OF YOUR JOKES.

The girl with curly hair says WHY DO LEOPARDS NEVER
PLAY HIDE AND SEEK?

Lukas says WHY?

The girl with curly hair says BECAUSE THEY'RE ALWAYS SPOTTED.

A girl with long hair says I GET IT IT.
THEY HAVE SOME...I GET THAT.

Kids laugh.

A girl with a pink T-shirt says WHY ARE TEDDY
BEARS NEVER HUNGRY?

Lukas says WHY?

The girl with a pink T-shirt says BECAUSE THEY'RE ALWAYS STUFFED.

An animated teddy bear burps and says EXCUSE ME.

A boy with a blue T-shirt says WHY IS THE STADIUM SO HOT
AFTER THE BASEBALL GAME?
BECAUSE ALL THE FANS LEFT.

Lukas says GREAT JOB GUYS.

Now, standing next to Zoey, Lukas says READY TO MEET
SOME TWIN COMEDIANS?

Zoey plays the ukulele and sings THEY LOOK AND SOUND
ALIKE YOU'LL FIND.

Lukas sings THEY REALLY ARE
JUST TWO OF A KIND.

Zoey says PLEASE WELCOME
PETER AND TOM HARTMAN.
HI PETER AND TOM.

Tom and Peter are in their mid-thirties. Tom has a short beard and a shaved head. He wears a plaid shirt. Peter has a shaved head and a thin moustache. He wears blue jeans and a striped shirt.

Tom says ACTUALLY IT'S
TOM AND PETER.

Peter says NO.
I'M PRETTY SURE
THEY GOT IT RIGHT
THE FIRST TIME.
PETER AND TOM IS THE
RIGHT WAY TO SAY IT.

Tom says NO ACTUALLY, TOM AND
PETER SOUNDS BETTER.

Peter says YOU DON'T
LISTEN TO HIM.
PETER AND TOM,
YOU GOT IT RIGHT.

(laughing)

Lukas says SO, WHAT ABOUT
YOUR NAMES?
DO YOU ALWAYS ARGUE
WHICH ONE COMES FIRST?

Tom says OH MY GOODNESS.
WE ARGUED ABOUT
THAT FOREVER AND
EVER AND EVER.
I MEAN, WHEN YOU'RE NOT A TWIN,
EVERYONE'S USED TO JUST HEARING
THEIR NAME SAID FIRST ALL THE
TIME BUT FOR ME, CAN YOU IMAGINE
EVERY YEAR, I'VE ALWAYS HEARD
MY NAME COME SECOND ON EVERY
BIRTHDAY CARD, ON EVERY
CHRISTMAS CARD, ON EVERY
PRESENT.
I'D LIKE IT TO BE,
YOU KNOW, TOM AND
PETER FOR ONCE.

Peter says BUT WE CAN'T
CHANGE IT NOW.
IT JUST SOUNDS
BETTER WHEN YOU SAY
PETER AND TOM.
IT JUST SOUNDS LIKE
THE RIGHT WAY TO SAY IT.

Zoey says SO HOW COME IT ENDED
UP PETER AND TOM?

Peter says WELL, PETER AND TOM, IT'S
LIKE A WORD PAIR, YOU KNOW?
IT'S SET THAT WAY
BECAUSE I WAS BORN FIRST.
I'M ACTUALLY FOUR MINUTES OLDER
THAN MY BROTHER WHICH IS AGES
WHEN IT COMES TO TWINS.

Zoey sings SO WHAT DO YOU MEAN
ABOUT WORD PAIRS?

Tom says WELL, WORD PAIRS ARE A SET OF
WORDS THAT ARE SET OR WRITTEN IN
A SPECIFIC ORDER LIKE ALL
NON-REVERSIBLE WORD PAIRS AND
THEY SHOW UP IN
LANGUAGE ALL THE TIME.
SORT OF LIKE FISH
AND CHIPS.
RIGHT?
YOU WOULDN'T REALLY
SAY CHIPS AND FISH.

Lukas says NO, IT SOUNDS WEIRD.

Zoey says FISH AND CHIPS
SOUNDS WAY BETTER.

Peter says I WOULD ACTUALLY
STILL LIKE SOME CHIPS
AND FISH.
THAT SOUNDS TASTY.

Tom chuckles.

Zoey says YOU MEAN FISH
AND CHIPS.

Peter says YOU GUYS WANT TO
DO A LITTLE EXERCISE
WITH NON
REVERSIBLE WORD PAIRS?

Lukas and Zoey say SURE.

Peter says SO WHAT SOUNDS RIGHT HERE?

Peter shows two cards that read "Lost" and "Found." He changes their order back and forth.

Zoey says THAT.
LOST FOUND.

Lukas says YEAH.
LOST AND FOUND.

Peter says THAT SOUNDS GOOD.
HOW ABOUT?

Two other cards read "Forth" and "Back."

Lukas says OTHER WAY I THINK.

Zoey says YEAH.

Lukas says BACK AND FORTH.
BACK AND FORTH.

Zoey says FUN.

Zoey says FUN AND GAMES, FUN AND GAMES.

Lukas says ALRIGHT, FUN AND GAMES.

Peter says YOU GUYS ARE
HAVING FUN AND GAMES.

Tom says YOU SEE HOW YOU DON'T ALWAYS
THINK ABOUT THIS BUT IT JUST
SOUNDS RIGHT WHEN
SAID IN THE RIGHT WAY.

Lukas and Zoey say MMM-HMM.

Peter says THOSE ARE EXAMPLES OF
NON-REVERSIBLE WORD PAIRS LIKE
OUR NAME PETER AND TOM.

Tom says YEAH.
SOMETIMES I THINK IT
MIGHT BE EASIER IF WE
JUST SQUISHED OUR
NAMES TOGETHER YOU KNOW?
AND THAT WAY WE
WOULDN'T HAVE TO ARGUE
ABOUT IT
ANYMORE.

Peter says THAT SOUNDS
LIKE A GOOD IDEA.

Lukas says WHAT ABOUT PE-TOM.

Zoey says TO-TER.

Tom and Peter say TOTER!
TOTER HARTMAN.

Tom says I LIKE THE
SOUND OF THAT.

Peter says I LIKE THAT.

Zoey says YEAH, SAME.
WHAT WAS IT LIKE BEING
TWINS WHEN YOU WERE KIDS?

Peter says WE'D GET ONE
CAKE TO SHARE BETWEEN
THE TWO OF
US.
YOU'D THINK WE
SHOULD GET TWO.

Lukas says YEAH.

Tom says NOT FUN AT ALL BUT,
YOU KNOW, WE ALSO
GOT TO SHARE OUR
PROBLEMS SO WE WERE
ABLE TO SOLVE THEM
TOGETHER LIKE THE
COOKIE JAR WAS NEVER HIGH
ENOUGH ON THE SHELF.
RIGHT?
I COULD ALWAYS GET ON HIS
SHOULDER AND GET WHATEVER I
NEEDED.
BUT THERE'S ALL KINDS OF
DIFFERENCES THAT WE DIDN'T
REALLY NOTICE OR ANTICIPATE LIKE
I'M WAY BETTER AT MATH THAN MY
BROTHER IS.

Peter says AND I'M BETTER AT ALL
THE OTHER SUBJECTS.

They smile.

Tom says YEAH.

Zoey says WELL, THANKS FOR COMING
OVER TOM AND PETER.
I MEAN PETER AND TOM.

Lukas says NO.
IT'S TOTER REMEMBER?

Zoey says OH YEAH.

Peter says THANKS FOR HAVING
US ZOEY AND LUKAS.

Tom says NO.
IT'S LUKAS AND ZOEY.

Peter says OR IS IT ZOKAS?

Tom says NO.
LUKOEY.

Zoey says YEAH!

Lukas says YEAH!

Zoey says LUKOEY!

They chuckle.

A girl with long dark hair says WHAT DID THE DOG SAY
WHEN HE SAT ON SANDPAPER?

A girl with earrings says I DON'T KNOW.

The girl with long dark hair says ROUGH.

An animated board reads "Game Show."

Contestants clap.

Lukas says HELLO AND WELCOME
TO TWIN WORDS.
THE GAME OF SOUND
ALIKE WORDS.
COMPETING TODAY ARE TWINS ALICE
AND HAZEL.

Alice and Hazel are around 10 years old. They have two ponytails and wears yellow T-shirts.

Lukas says AND TWINS FAYLICIA AND LILYA.

Faylicia and Lilya are around 11 years old. They have straight brown hair and wear blue T-shirts.

Lukas says HERE'S THE TWIST.
TODAY, YOU WON'T BE PLAYING
ON THE SAME TEAM AS YOUR TWIN.

Shocked, Alice and Hazel cover their mouths.

Lukas says THAT'S RIGHT.
WE'RE MIXING IT UP.
YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO USE YOUR
TWIN POWERS WITH EACH OTHER.
MUAHAHAHAHAHA.
ALRIGHT GUYS.
WE'RE GONNA HAVE
YOU SWITCH SIDES.
TADA.
FAYLICIA AND ALICE, YOU
ARE NOW TEAM TWOFOLD.
AND LILYA AND HAZEL,
YOU ARE NOW TEAM REPLICA.
SOME SOUND ALIKE WORDS ARE
SPELLED EXACTLY THE SAME.
THEY'RE CALLED HOMONYMS AND
SOME ARE NOT SPELLED EXACTLY THE
SAME.
THEY'RE HOMOPHONES.
IN TODAY'S GAME YOU'LL HAVE
10 SECONDS TO GUESS SOME SOUND
ALIKE WORDS.
TEAM TWOFOLD, YOU'RE UP FIRST.
YOU GET TWO POINTS FOR
EACH CORRECT ANSWER.

Lukas hands a card to Faylicia. The card shows a baseball bat and a bat.

Faylicia says SOMETHING THAT
FLIES IN THE NIGHT.
IT SLEEPS IN THE DAY.
THE OTHER ONE IS SOMETHING
THAT YOU USE TO PLAY BASEBALL.
YOU HIT THE
BALL WITH IT.

A counter reads "10."

Alice says UH, IS IT A BAT?

Excited, Faylicia says YES.

Lukas says YES.
BAT AND BAT ARE HOMONYMS.
GREAT JOB.
THAT'S 2 POINTS.
TEAM REPLICA YOU'RE UP NEXT.

Lilya looks at a card that shows a flower and flour.

Lilya says IT'S SOMETHING THAT
GROWS IN THE GRASS
AND SOMETHING THAT
YOU DO TO MAKE CAKES.

Hazel says FLOUR?

Lilya says YEAH.

Hazel says YEAH.

Lukas says YOU GOT IT FLOWER AND
FLOUR ARE HOMOPHONES.
NEXT ROUND.

The card shows a nail and nails.

Alice says IT'S SOMETHING
THAT'S ON YOUR FINGERS.
IT'S SOMETHING THAT
YOU USE FOR BUILDING.
IT ONLY WORKS IF
YOU HAVE A HAMMER,
SCREWDRIVER,
SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

Faylicia says NAIL?

Alice says YES.

Lukas says YUP, NAIL AND NAIL ARE
HOMONYMS.
ALRIGHT
TEAM REPLICA.

Hazel looks at a card that shows a pair of red boots and a pear.

Hazel says IT'S A FRUIT.
IT COULD BE GREEN OR
IT COULD BE BROWN.
THE NEXT ONE IS ANOTHER
WAY TO SAY TWO OF SOMETHING.

Lilya thinks.

Lukas says ONLY 5 SECONDS LEFT.
HURRY.
TIME'S UP GUYS.

Lilya says IT WAS A PAIR.

The Audience says AW!

Lukas says PAIR AND PEAR ARE
HOMOPHONES.
IT'S NOW 4 TO 2.
TEAM TWOFOLD HAS THE LEAD.
ON TO ROUND 3.

Faylicia looks at a card that shows a red bow and a bow for shooting.

Faylicia says IT'S SOMETHING THAT YOU
COULD PUT ON YOUR HAIR OR ON
PRESENTS AND THERE'S ALSO
SOMETHING WHERE THERE'S LIKE A
STRING AND THEN THERE'S A STICK
AND ANOTHER STICK AND WHEN YOU
PULL SOMETHING'S GONNA GO
FLYING.

Alice says IS IT A BOW?

Excited, Faylicia says YES.

Lukas says TEAM TWOFOLD YOU'RE ON
FIRE.
BOW AND BOW ARE HOMONYMS.

Lilya looks at a card that shows a waiving hand and a cash register.

Lilya says UM, IT'S SOMETHING THAT WHEN YOU
GO TO THE GROCERY STORE YOU
PURCHASE IT AND WHEN YOU
GO MEET SOMEONE YOU SAY HI,
IT'S THE OPPOSITE OF THAT.

Hazel says UH, BYE?

Lilya says YES.

Lukas says GREAT JOB.
BYE AND BUY ARE HOMOPHONES.
THIS IS THE LAST ROUND.
ALRIGHT TEAM TWOFOLD IF YOU GET
THIS RIGHT YOU WIN BUT IF YOU
DON'T THERE'S A CHANCE
FOR TEAM REPLICA TO TIE.

Alice looks at a card that shows a male pitcher and a jar.

Alice says THE THING IS SOMETHING IN
BASEBALL HE THROWS THE BALL AND
THE OTHER THING IT'S GLASS
AND IT'S A THING YOU COULD
POUR, LIKE EMPTY.

Lukas says TEN SECONDS GUYS.

Alice says COME ON, COME ON.

Faylicia thinks.

Lukas says OKAY GUYS, TIME'S UP.

Alice says IT WAS A PITCHER.

Lukas says THAT WAS A TOUGH ONE.
PITCHER AND
PITCHER ARE HOMONYMS.
THIS IS THE LAST CARD.
IF YOU DON'T GET THIS
ONE TEAM TWOFOLD WILL WIN.

Hazel looks at a card that shows a rabbit and a woman's hair.

Hazel says IT'S SOMETHING THAT GOES
ON YOUR HEAD AND YOU COULD USE
AN ELASTIC TO TIE IT UP AND THE
OTHER ONE IS A TYPE OF RABBIT.

Lilya says A HARE.

Hazel says YES.

Lukas says THAT'S IT.
HARE AND HAIR ARE HOMOPHONES.
YOU BOTH WIN.
IT'S A TWIN SCORE.
THANKS FOR BEING OUR TWIN
CONTESTANTS ON TWIN WORDS.

An animation shows a sleeping dog and a cat trying to eat his food. The dog wakes up wearing several watches.

The Dog says YOU CAN'T GET PAST ME.
I'M A WATCHDOG.

The Cat says MEOW.

Sitting behind a laptop, Zoey says TWIN WORDS THAT SOUND THE SAME
BUT HAVE DIFFERENT MEANINGS ARE
PRETTY COOL BUT HOW ABOUT WORDS
THAT ARE INVENTED BY TWINS?
NOW THAT'S SUPER COOL.
LOTS OF TWINS INVENT
THEIR OWN LANGUAGE.
EXPERTS THINK IT'S BECAUSE
TWINS USUALLY SPEND SO MUCH TIME
TOGETHER GROWING UP AND THEY
LEARN TO SPEAK AT THE SAME TIME.
SO SOMETIMES THEY USE WORDS
THAT ONLY THE TWO OF THEM CAN
UNDERSTAND.
IT'S LIKE SECRET TWIN SPEAK.

She watches a clip on the laptop. In the clip, Lukas and Zoey role-play as if they were little twins. They play sitting on the floor speaking a made up twin language.

(crying)

Zoey chuckles and says TWINS USUALLY STOP USING THEIR
MADE UP
LANGUAGE ONCE THEY'VE LEARNED A
REAL LANGUAGE BUT MY FRIEND TOLD
ME ABOUT THESE IDENTICAL TWINS
IN ENGLAND WHO KEPT UP THEIR
INVENTED LANGUAGE.
THEY CALL IT UMERI.
THEY STARTED CREATING AN
ALPHABET AND EVEN A DICTIONARY
FOR IT.
THEY CAN SPEAK ABOUT 10
LANGUAGES IN ALL BUT SO FAR
THEY'RE THE ONLY TWO PEOPLE IN
THE WORLD WHO CAN SPEAK UMERI.
I READ THAT THE TWINS ARE
STILL WORKING ON THEIR INVENTED
LANGUAGE.
HOW AMAZING IS THAT?

Twin boys pillow fight.

A twin boy says GIVE IT TO ME.

Blond twin girls say KNOCK KNOCK.

Lukas says WHO'S THERE?

Blond twin girl 1 says LETTUCE.

Lukas says LETTUCE WHO?

Blond twin girl 2 says LET US IN WE'RE FREEZING.

In a clip, Zoey reads on a park bench. A lightning strikes and someone appears.

Zoey says WHOA.
WHO ARE YOU?

Heather says I'M YOUR TWIN COUSIN
HEATHER HOMOPHONE.

Zoey says TWIN COUSIN BUT HOW
IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?

Heather says DON'T WE SOUND EXACTLY THE SAME?

Zoey says I...BUT...

Heather says I KNOW.
I AM A BLONDE AND YOU'RE NOT AND
I'M FROM A DIFFERENT DIMENSION.

Zoey says WAIT, WHAT?

Heather says YEAH.
THE TWO WEEKS IN
THE FUTURE DIMENSION.

Zoey says UM, IS THIS A PRANK?

Heather says YOU'RE GONNA EAT A PEANUT
BUTTER SANDWICH LATER RIGHT?

Zoey says YEAH BUT HOW?

Heather says AND YOU KNOW THE BOOK
THAT YOU'RE READING?
I KNOW THE ENDING.
THE GUY IN THE BLUE CAR HE...

Zoey says NO NO NO.
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA.
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA.

Lukas says HEY.
COOL.
YOU GUYS ARE TWINS.

Zoey says WE ARE NOT.

Lukas says COME ON.
YOU SOUND EXACTLY THE SAME.

Zoey says YEAH BUT WE COULDN'T
BE MORE DIFFERENT.

Lukas says VERY FUNNY.
PRETENDING YOU
GUYS AREN'T TWINS?
I CAN'T EVEN TELL
YOUR VOICES APART.

Heather says YEAH, WE HOMOPHONES
GET THAT A LOT.

Zoey says WE ARE DIFFERENT.

Heather says FORGET IT.
I LOST THIS ARGUMENT WITH
HIM LAST WEEK RIGHT BEFORE I
FINISHED THE BOOK AND FOUND OUT
THAT THE GUY IN THE BLUE CAR DID
IT.

(laughter)

Zoey says WHY?

The clip ends.

Zoey says IT'S THE WACKY CHALLENGE

Lukas says WITH YOUR HOSTS ZOEY AND LUKAS.

Zoey and Lukas wear wigs and checked black and red jackets.

Zoey says WELCOME, WELCOME
EVERYONE.
IT'S TIME FOR TODAY'S
TWIN-O-RAMA CHALLENGE.

Lukas says WE'RE PUTTING
2 AND 2 TOGETHER.

Zoey says FOR REAL.
THEY JUST DON'T
KNOW YET HOW
TOGETHER THEY'LL
ACTUALLY BE.
LET'S CHECK IN WITH
OUR PAIR OF PAIRS.
TODAY'S TWIN CHALLENGERS ARE
EMERALD AND LINEA ON TEAM TWO
TIMES.

Emerald and Linea are around 12 years old. They have blond hair and wear spotted blue jackets.

Zoey says AND JULIAN AND THOMAS
ON TEAM DOUBLE DIGITS.

Julian and Thomas are around 12 years old. They have blond hair. Julian wears a plaid shirt and Thomas a green T-shirt.

Lukas says I'LL BET YOU TWINS ARE
PRETTY CLOSE TO EACH OTHER.
RIGHT?

The twins say YEAH.

Thomas says YEAH WE ARE.

Lukas says YOU'LL BE REALLY CLOSE TO
EACH OTHER IN THIS CHALLENGE.

Zoey says THAT'S WHY YOUR LEGS
ARE TIED TOGETHER.
IT'S A THREE
LEGGED RACE.

Contestants chuckle.

Zoey says DID YOU EVER NOTICE THAT SOME
THINGS, LIKE THESE TONGS, ARE
THINGS THAT WE CALL PAIRS AND
THE WORD ALWAYS ENDS IN S EVEN
THOUGH THERE'S
REALLY JUST ONE OBJECT.

Lukas says YOU'RE RIGHT ZOEY.
WE DON'T SAY I'M PICKING UP
MY SPAGHETTI WITH A TONG.
WE SAY I'M PICKING
UP MY SPAGHETTI WITH
A PAIR OF
TONGS.

Zoey says HERE'S THE CHALLENGE.
ON THOSE BOARDS BEHIND YOU
THERE ARE PICTURES OF OBJECTS.
ONLY SOME OF THOSE OBJECTS
ARE ALWAYS CALLED PAIRS.
LIKE A PAIR
OF TONGS.

Lukas says YOU HAVE TO PICK UP A SPONGE,
HOLD IT BETWEEN YOU WITHOUT
USING YOUR HANDS AND GO PLACE
IT ON A PICTURE OF AN OBJECT YOU
THINK IS ALWAYS CALLED A PAIR.

Zoey says IT'S A RACE.
THE TEAM WITH
THE MOST CORRECT
OBJECTS WINS.
GO!
THEY DON'T KNOW IT BUT
THERE ARE 8 CORRECT OBJECTS.

Twin girls say OKAY, OKAY,
OKAY, PANTS.

A green tick appears.

Thomas says IT'S BINOCULARS.

Julian says OKAY, OKAY, COME.

Zoey says BOTH TEAMS HAVE
THEIR FIRST CORRECT
OBJECTS, PANTS
AND BINOCULARS.
THEY'RE CALLED PAIRS BECAUSE
TWO IDENTICAL PARTS MAKE UP THE
WHOLE OBJECT.

Girls say OKAY.

Thomas says PICK IT UP.
STUFF IT,
STUFF IT.
GO, TURN AROUND.

Lukas says TEAM DOUBLE DIGITS
IS PULLING AHEAD.
AMAZING TEAM WORK.

Zoey says IT'S LIKE THEIR
LEGS AREN'T EVEN
TIED TOGETHER.

Thomas says WHAT IS IT?
PLIERS.
COME ON.

The caption changes to "a pair of pliers."

Emerald says GLASSES.
TURN AROUND.
WE'RE GETTING
HE HANG OF THIS.

Thomas says GO, GO, GO,
GO, GO.

Lukas says OH NO.
TEAM TWO TIMES IS HAVING
TROUBLE RUNNING TOGETHER.

Thomas says QUICKLY, QUICKLY,
QUICKLY.

Julian says GOOD GOOD,
YOU GOT IT.

The caption changes to "A pair of shorts."

A twin girl says A PAIR OF
SUSPENDERS.

A twin boy says TWEEZERS,
TWEEZERS.

Zoey says YES, A PAIR OF TWEEZERS.
WE DON'T SAY
A TWEEZER.

Lukas says WOW.
TEAM DOUBLE DIGITS IS
FLYING THROUGH THIS CHALLENGE.

A twin girl says I DON'T KNOW.
THEY PUT IT THERE.

Lukas says TEAM TWO TIMES CAN'T
FIND ANOTHER OBJECT.

A twin girl says UM, WHAT'S LEFT?
A PAIR OF SUITCASES.

Zoey says OH YEAH.
TEAM DOUBLE DIGITS
GETS THE LAST OBJECT.
A PAIR OF GARDEN SHEARS.

Lukas says YEAH THEY HAVE TWO
CUTTING BLADES LIKE SCISSORS.

Zoey says THEY'RE PAIRS.
NOW LET'S SEE HOW
MANY CORRECT PAIRS
THESE PAIRS
OF TWINS GOT.

Lukas says TEAM TWO TIMES, YOU GOT
THREE CORRECT OBJECTS.

Zoey says GOOD JOB GUYS.
AND TEAM DOUBLE
DIGITS YOU GOT 5,
SO YOU'RE THE
WINNERS.

Twin boys say YES.

Zoey says ALRIGHT!

A twin girl says GOOD JOB.

Thomas says THANKS.

Lukas says THANKS FOR BEING
ON OUR SHOW.
YOU CAN UNTIE
YOUR LEGS.

Zoey says UNLESS YOU FEEL
LIKE BEING AN
INSEPARABLE PAIR.

Twins say WE ALREADY ARE.

Julian says WE DON'T NEED ROPES
TO BE INSEPARABLE.

Lukas and Zoey say BYE.

A girl with a yellow sweater says WHY DO GOLFERS WEAR
TWO PAIRS OF PANTS?

The girl with curly hair says WHY?

The girl with a yellow sweater says IN CASE THEY GET A HOLE IN ONE.

A twin girl says I GET IT.

In the attic, Lukas says I'M GONNA TURN BOOBOO
BOT INTO A JOKE MACHINE.

Booboo Bot says HA HA HA HA HA.

Lukas says BUT FIRST I'M PRACTICING BY
HAVING HIM FINISH SOME PUNS.
OKAY BOOBOO BOT.
HERE'S A PUN TO FINISH.
HOW DO YOU GET A SQUIRREL
TO LIKE YOU?

Booboo Bot says BEEP BOOP.
OLET PAHKINA!

Lukas says HUH?

Booboo Bot says WHAT?

Lukas says IT WAS SUPPOSED TO
BE ACT LIKE A NUT.
ALRIGHT,
HERE WE GO.
BOOBOO BOT, FINISH THIS.
WHAT DID THE TRIANGLE
SAY TO THE CIRCLE?

Booboo Bot says BEEP BOOP.
OLET PAATON!

Lukas says WHAT IS THAT?

Booboo Bot says BOOBOO BOT FINNISH.

Lukas says THE PUNCH LINE IS
YOUR POINTLESS.
YOU KNOW, BECAUSE A
CIRCLE HAS NO POINTY PARTS?

Booboo Bot says BOOBOO BOT FINNISH.
FINNISH.

Lukas says UH-OH.
BOOBOO BOT GOT CONFUSED
BY SOUND ALIKE WORDS.
WHEN I ASKED HIM TO FINISH SOME
PUNS HE THOUGHT I MEANT FINNISH
AS IN THE LANGUAGE THEY SPEAK
IN THE COUNTRY OF FINLAND.
SO HE TRANSLATED INTO THAT
LANGUAGE BUT I JUST WANTED HIM
TO FINISH SOME JOKES.

Booboo Bot says HUH?

Lukas says BOOBOO BOT
FINISH IN ENGLISH.

Shaking, Booboo Bot says TERMINATE ENGLISH!
LOPETTA ENGLANTI!

Lukas says I GUESS THE JOKE MACHINE
STILL NEEDS SOME FINE TUNING.

(laughing)

Now, Zoey and Lukas show each other's faces on a stick.

Zoey says LOOK, I'M LUKAS.

Lukas says NO, I'M ZOEY.

Zoey says NO, I'M ZOEY.

Lukas says NO, I'M LUKAS.

Zoey says NO, OKAY.
NOW I'M LUKAS.

Lukas says NO, NOW I'M LUKAS.

(laughing)

Zoey says TODAY'S SHOW
WAS A BLAST.
SOUND ALIKE WORDS
WITH DIFFERENT
MEANINGS
ARE SO FUN.

Lukas says EVERYONE "NOSE."

He wears a fake nose.

(laughing)

Zoey says SO THAT'S
OUR SHOW.
IT'S TIME
TO GO.
WE HOPE YOU
HAD SOME FUN.

Lukas says WITH SOUND ALIKE
WORDS AND TWINS
AND PUNS.

Zoey says AND NOW OUR
SHOW IS DONE.

They bow.

Booboo Bot 1 says BOOBOO BOT
HAS A TWIN.
BOOBOO BOT 2.

Booboo Bot 2 says VERY WACKY.

(laughing)

Music plays as the end credits roll.

Zoey sings WHEN YOU'RE A
HOMONYM OR A HOMOPHONE.
YOU ARE A TWIN AND
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
WE ARE NOT ALONE.
WE ARE NOT ALONE.
READ A TALE ABOUT A TAIL AND
YOU'RE ON THE RIGHT TRAIL.
A SOUND A LIKE WORD'S AN
ACTION FOR YOUR SATISFACTION.
WE ARE VERY COOL.

OUR TIME TOGETHER.
WE'VE BEEN SPENDING THE HOUR

WE WROTE SOME MAIL.
AND WE EVEN DID SOME MAIL
DELIVERY MATH.
WAIT A SECOND.
MAIL, MATH.

NOTICING?
BOTH OF THOSE ARE LETTER "M."
WORDS.
BEFORE WE SAY GOODBYE, LET'S
CHECK OUT THIS QUICK EPISODE OF
ABC SING SONG, ALL ABOUT LETTER
"M" WORDS.

Logo: TVO Kids.

Logo: Goddard Brown.

A caption reads "ABC singsong, by Warren Brown and Adam Goddard."

An animated character says IT'S AN ABC

the character moves his body as he sings a song that goes MOVE, MOVE, "M" FOR MOVE

Joel says ALL RIGHT, IT HAVE BEEN
KIDS, THEY SAY TIME FLIES WHEN
YOU'RE HAVING FUN.
AND I HOPE YOU HAD FUN TODAY.
AND, OF COURSE, I HOPE YOU
LEARNED SOME NEW THINGS.
I AM LEAVING YOU WITH A FEW
PIECES OF LEARNING THAT YOU CAN
CONTINUE AT HOME ALL ABOUT MAIL.
YOU STARTED AND FINISHED YOUR
LETTER.
YOU CAN FILL IT IN WITH YOUR
MESSAGE AND A FAMILY MEMBER CAN
HELP YOU SEND THAT IN THE MAIL.
WE ALSO HAD SOME MATH PROBLEM
SOLVING LOOKING AT THESE NUMBER
LINES.
IF YOU LIKE THIS, WHY NOT MAKE A
BLANK NUMBER LINE OF YOUR OWN
AND FILL IT IN WITH A NUMBER
PATTERN.
WE ALSO THOUGHT A BIT ABOUT
HOMONYMS... TWO WORDS THAT SOUND
THE SAME.
I WONDER IF YOU CAN FIND MORE
HOMONYMS IN YOUR HOUSE.
FOR TODAY, I'M GOING TO BE
SAYING SEE YOU LATER.
AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU
FOR A FUN TIME OF LEARNING HERE
ON TVOKIDS POWER HOUR
OF LEARNING.
