Out of the mouths of babes....

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?
