Special Sound 'OW' as in Bowl

During school today Ethan learned the special phonetic sound 'ow' as in the word bowl. He then had a list of words in which he needed to read to me that reflected this newly learned sound. As he read he came to the word m-o-w. He read it just as he should and then looked at me and started to laugh. He said the word m-o-w and then said "You know as in - You're a MO!" then he giggled again. He said "Oh Mom, I'm not calling you a Mo - that's just what the word says!" I cracked up and could not contain the laughter. I then explained to him that this was a different type of mo - this was mow as in 'mow the lawn.'

Ohhhhh . . . . what our kiddos learn in school these days. . . .
