Hooked on Phonics. You Gotta Love it.

Some 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, then asked...

'What did you call it?'

'It's a frickin' elephant! It says so on the picture!'

And so it does...

' African Elephant '
