We who have taught, or love children who have been taught, know this is funny!
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 “
Phonics! Ain’t it wonderful?
Now that’s funny,
I don’t care who you are.
Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often
