Favorite Letter


On the first day of first grade, Mrs. Smith asked her students to name their favorite letter.

One young girl in front raised her hand and said: “My favorite letter is ‘F,’ because the word ‘flowers’ begins with ‘F’.”

“Very good, Marissa!” Mrs. Smith chirped. “Who else?”

A young boy raised his hand and said: “I like the letter “X” because not a lot of words have an ‘X’ in them.”

“That’s also a good one, Kyle.” Mrs. Smith scanned the room. “Anyone else want to share?”

A small boy in the back raised his hand about wildly and said: “My favorite letter is definitely ‘G!’”

Mrs. Smith looked at the boy and asked: “Why is that, Angus?”
