Pre-School 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?


  1. loved this--my favorite animal is the elephant :) thanks for the smiles.

  2. Me too i love elephants. How can it be told that is was a freaking animal? how?
