Phonetics, Phonics and Elephants

From an email I received, an oldie but a goodie...

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?
