Passing First Grade - Reading/Grammar Question

Soooo....

My youngest is in first grade was doing her homework tonight and reading a book assigned nightly during the week. Anyhow, the story reads:

and the rabbit jumped into a hole.

So my question is, if they are reading this sentence do they say it as:

a-hole "long a"

or 

uh-hole

??????

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.
