Making the rounds:
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, then asked...'What did you call it?'
'It's a frickin' elephant!
And so it does...
' A f r i c a n Elephant '
Hooked on phonics! Ain't it wonderful?
