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, and 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?
