    Smile kicking a corn/kicking corn

    Hello. The story below is a phonics story with the words with er/or sounds.
    I am wondering which one is right: "kicking a corn" or "kicking corn"
    (In the picture a farmer is kicking an ear of corn.)
    Thank you.

    A farmer and a baker are playing soccer.
    Wait! The farmer is kicking a corn.
    The baker is kicking a fork.
    These are not balls.
    What a strange soccer game!

    Re: kicking a corn/kicking corn

    Normally, I would not say "kicking a corn". However, in this case, it is OK.
