After stepping out for a few minutes from the Grade 1 classroom where I teach, I returned to a chorus of children tattling: “Brendan said the B-word! Brendan said the B-word!”

Perplexed, I took Brendan into the hall and asked him to tell me what the B-word was. He answered by uttering the F-word.

Beginning the next day, I increased our phonics lessons.
