We've got more of your wonderful poems on tonight's Chompers!

Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Welcome back, it’s time for more Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. 

Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth. 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush

>> Rachel: It’s Poetry Week, and tonight we’ve got more poems written by you Chompions!

Let’s start with Emily’s poem, about a bug!  It’s called “Moth Poem.”

They like light, 

They come out at night, 

But they do not bite.

Hazel’s poem is also about nature.  It’s called ‘Grandma’s Back Patio.”

Out there is a garden bed

And a place where there was a pool

There are hiding places that are shady

And I think they are cool.

Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, but don't brush too hard. 

Here’s a poem from Taylor:

I woke up that day, it was time to play it was time to play oh bother.

That afternoon I popped a balloon, I popped the balloon on my mother. 

I went to bed and bumped my head, and stared at my brother." Taylor (boy)

Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and keep on brushing 

We were also VERY flattered that some of you Chompions wrote haiku about … US!  Like Evie!

My name is Evie

Chompers is the best for me

Because I can brush 

Eli also wrote about teeth -- and his poem has a fun twist at the end! 

I have teeth

They always shine

I'm so glad

That they are mine

Because I use them

All the time

And they guard my tongue! (From crime!)" Eli

Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and brush in little circles around each tooth.

Keira’s poem is perfect for when you’re getting ready for bed:

When the sun sets I lay down my head in my bed.  

I close my eyes and dream that I am on a balance beam with my gymnastics team.

And Parker and Emma’s haiku reminds us why brushing with Chompers is so important!

I can't brush my teeth

Because my arm fell asleep

Then I'll have black teeth

Good thing you brushed! Now all you have to do is …

>> Kids: 3, 2, 1, SPIT!
