The children take turns
The next day Rose pays extra attention
to every thing her teacher says, so she can tell
her little friend all about the words she learned.
The children take turns in saying a word
that starts with the letter the teacher points out.
And if they find it hard to do, she’ll help them
by forming her mouth in the way the letter
has to be pronounced. She also teaches them
the different meaning of the words hour and flower,
even though they’re much alike in sound.
