What Not to Do.

We have many different tools and tricks we use to coax these darling children to read. One strategy is using "nonsense" words to help the children with their sounding out skills.



However, I will never use these two words with Frank.

At least not after yesterday.




"HEY! I hewd that word before!!!"




Oh Sweet Lord.

I have to tell you. That kid needs to be bottled and sold. My husband and I were discussing "Frank" last night and I said "I bet that every year that there's a Frank". Now, I'm not so sure anymore. Hahahaha

Scope said...

I'd love to read Frank's blog when he gets older.

Wordver = dence

Frank is priceless. I hope his parents appreciate the wonder that is Frank.

I can only imagine what my son's teachers thought of us :(
He had a colorful way with words at a young age.. based on things he heard at home.. not me ! I never say "bad words" lol

I hear those words daily, coming out of my mouth!

Mellodee said...

Ahhhh, Frank! Love this kid!!

Expat mum said...

I want to know more about his home life. Are we to understand that he hears this on an everyday basis from his parents, or just once in a while like most homes?
(My 7 y/o told me he'd used the F word the other day. Turned out to be "fart". Phew!)

I'll be first in line to buy the "About Frank" book! He is such a riot! And then you come back with something just as funny!
Thanks for sharing your days with us.

A "fak" is a true thing that is known.


"Vuc" is a short slang term for vaccuum...

What?

*blinkblink*

Bwa-ha-ha!! I remember my parents realized they had to stop swearing the day my 5-year old sister dropped something and said "Oh Sh*t" waaaay too nonchalantly. :)

Have an Extraordinary Day!

I teach high school. Some days your stories are so funny they make me almost want to teach little kids. Almost.But, today was one of those days! :D

I don't think I could ever get enough of Frank....well, unless I was his kindergarten teacher ;)

J.J. in L.A. said...

The brothers and I used to have a great time trying to get a cousin to say 'glass' and 'truck'. Somehow I think it would be just as fun with Frank. ; )

I'm not a teacher but have had to work with my son on speech and this is spot-on!

God bless the mother of Frank. I gave birth to a "Frank" and after yelling down the hallway of the Catholic school at me when he was in 1st grade.." See ya Mom! Have a good fwurst day on u pier-wee-id !" I left the catholic church and started on birth control.
Good Luck or do I mean good fak ?

You are cutting Frank in on the profits from your BlogHer ads, right? The boy deserves a share.

Pastor Sharon said...

Yes. . . so did my sweet boy in first grade. In fact, he heard it on the playground.
When Amy arrived to pick him up after school that day, he promptly asked her what it meant.

Boys. . . . God I love 'em! Especially at that age!
