So today when we were sounding out words, I had a kid change a word from his (huh, iiii, ssss-- that's how we sound it out) to this on the board. He changed it to pis. Wouldn't have been quite so bad except I have one kid who loves to repeat EVERYTHING I say, just like I say it. And I turn to hear him say, "Sound it out.. does that spell this? No.. it's p--- iiiiiiii----sssss!" I whipped around to hear a fit of giggles and the little guy proudly proclaim, "Oops! I said a bad word!"

Word to the wise.. be careful when first graders are sounding out words on their own. You never know what you're going to get from them.
