My five-year old students are learning to read.
Yesterday one of them pointed at a picture in a Zoo Book and said... "Look at this! It's a frickin' elephant!'
I took a deep breath, and then asked..."What did you call it?"
"It's a frickin' elephant! It says so on the picture!"
And so it does...
Hooked on phonics! Ain't it wonderful?
Now that's funny, I don't care who you are.
