Trouble with English? Everybody's got it.

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  " 

Hooked on phonics!  Ain't it wonderful?
  

Now that's funny, 
I don't care who you are.
