We're finishing up (finally) our ABC book. Today a student was painting black zebra stripes on his letter Z and asked me if snore began with z. My initial reaction was to stretch out snore, "do you hear a z in sssssnnnnore?"
"No, like in the cartoons, when the man is snoring? There are z's."
Yes, there are. Yet another thing that doesn't really make sense in the world of an English Language Learner.
"It's just one of those things sweetie."
So he drew a man sleeping on his letter Z :) If anyone asks, he can explain it, and that's what matters.
