Listen to tonight's Chompers for more riddles. Can you guess the answers?

Where to Listen



>>RACHEL: Welcome back to Chompers Academy! Your twice daily tooth brushing show. We’ll begin today’s lesson by brushing on the top of your mouth. You may pick a side, and make tiny little circles around each brilliant little tooth.

>>KIDS: 3-2-1 Brush! 


>>RACHEL: Just kidding it’s me! It’s School Week, and tonight we have more riddles for you. I’ll tell you a riddle about school, and you have to guess what it is! 

Ready for your first one?

I’m kind of like a score

But just look like a letter

A B is very good 

But an A is even better

So, what am I?


>>RACHEL: A Grade. A+ if you got that one right. 

Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


>>RACHEL: -and give your tongue a brush too.

GRADES are one of the ways to keep track of how you are doing in school. When you complete work at school, like a project or a test, your teacher gives you a grade. An A means you did really well!


>>RACHEL: Other grades mean you might need to put in a little more work on the subject!  Not every school uses A, B and C grades -- some schools use numbers, and some schools just use words to talk about what students are doing well and what they can work on more. 

Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth…


>>RACHEL: -and keep on brushing. 

Ready for your next riddle?

I’m a helpful CARD 

So you know how well you’re learning

I hope things don’t seem hard

And you like the grades your earning

What am I?

>>GROUP: A Report Card!

>>RACHEL: A report card.

Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


>>RACHEL: -and don’t forget the molars in the way back. 

A report card is something your teacher gives your grown-ups so they know all your GRADES! Your teachers list all of your grades so that your grownup knows what subjects you’re really good at…


>>RACHEL: -and the ones where you need to keep practicing.

>>KID: I don’t get it.

>>RACHEL: I give you all… an A! For making great tiny circles around each tooth.


>>RACHEL: That’s all the time we have for Chompers today. 

Come back tomorrow for more clean teeth. Until then,

>>KIDS: 3-2-1 Spit!
