Hooked on Phonics

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! It says so on the picture!”

And so it does..

” A f r i c a n Elephant ”

Hooked on phonics! Ain’t it wonderful?
