Get ready for some tasty poems, because tonight we've got more snack rhymes for you to figure out!

Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Oh it’s you! Welcome back to Chompers! Your morning and night toothbrushing show.

Start brushing on the top of your mouth, and make little circles with your brush around each tooth

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!

It’s Snack Week, and tonight we’re rhyming up a storm again … with some snack POEMS!

Listen to our poems -- and when you hear (SFX), fill in the word that RHYMES.

Here's your first poem:

Vanilla, Chocolate, or Strawberry

These flavors make me scream

Don’t forget the chocolate sauce

Or add sprinkles to your ice (SFX) _________

>> GROUP: Ice cream!

>> Rachel:  Ice Cream

Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, and give your tongue a brush too! 

I dream, you dream, we all dream of ice cream! But if you can’t eat ice cream, maybe the next best thing is a pacay bean (KID : HUH?)

-- PACAY trees make a delicious bean that tastes like vanilla ice cream. (SFX YUM) People even call it the ice-cream bean tree!  Pacay beans sort of look like big snap peas … and pacay beans have a creamy white inside that tastes just like vanilla ice cream -- except it’s not cold. 

Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and brush the molars in the way back

Here’s your next poem -- listen for the (SFX) and shout out the word that rhymes!

I want a crunchy snack

Something salty, and good with dips

Oh I’ve got a good idea!

I’ll reach for a bag of (SFX) ______

>> GROUP: Chips!

>> Rachel: Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, but don’t brush too hard. 

Here’s your last snack poem:

This is what you reach for 

When hunger pains attack

It's what this week is all about

A sweet or tasty ____


>> Rachel:  Yeah SNACKS!

That’s it for Chompers tonight. Thanks for listening and don’t forget to rinse with water before you … 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!.
