Hooked on Phonics, Part II

Tuesday, October 12, 2010 By

We're working on homework, and Emmie is identifying photos of words that begin with the same sound as "cat."

"Car!" she cries, excited to find her first one.

"Very good," I say. "Now find all the ones that start with the same sound and color them in, and put an 'x' over the ones that don't start with the same sound."

"Okay," she says. "Panda.... no."

She puts an x.

"Corn - yes!"

She colors it in.

"Socks - no."

She puts an x, and moves on to a crappy mimeograph of a computer.

"Hmm. Peeyooter, no."

She puts an x.

(sigh) I really have to discourage the baby talk.
