Hooked on Phonics – For the Teachers or Grandparents

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…

African Elephant

Hooked on phonics! Ain’t it wonderful?
