I was talking to the First Grade ESL (English as a Second Language) class about ways to become a better reader:
MR. BOWERS: When I was a kid I would read the back of the cereal box in the morning when I ate my cereal. You know, there are usually games and stuff on the back of the box. Celeste, do you eat cereal for breakfast?
CELESTE: Jes. (This is how she says, "yes")
MR. BOWERS: Ok, so what kind of cereal do you eat?
MR. BOWERS: Come on, what is is? Fruity Pebbles?
CELESTE: Um, no.
MR. BOWERS: Ok, then what? Frosted Flakes? Honey Bunches of Oats?
MR. BOWERS: What is it? Come on, you remember, don't you?
CELESTE: It's dee...dee...de Crunch of de Captain!
