Scene: My classroom, helping a student who was having difficulty with the differences between long vowels and short vowels, particularly long a as in ape and short a as in apple.
Miss Hillary: Ok, so what's a word that has the long a sound in it? Aaaaaay.
Miss Hillary: I'll give you a hint... 'I don't want to work, I just want to....?"
Student: Um? [it wasn't the best clue on my part, but I was thinking of the word play]
Miss Hillary, making a "play" kind of gesture: I don't want to work, I just want to....?
Student: Ummm... OH! DRINK!
