Hooked on Phonics

From the diary of a Pre-School Teacher


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?

Now that's funny, I don't care who you are.
