Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Good Morning! It’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. 

It’s Jobs week on Chompers, and today we’ve got some riddles to really work your brain.

Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and make sure to brush in little circles all the way around each tooth. 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush! 

>> Rachel: Here’s your first one: 


I work with big machinery

Like bulldozers and cranes

And wear a shiny hard hat

That help protect my brain

What am I?

>> GROUP: A construction worker

>> Rachel: Construction Worker


Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth (SFX), and brush your front teeth too!

Here’s another riddle: 

I chop, and dice, and saute

The food that I prepare

An apron, gloves and white hat

Is the uniform I wear

What am I? 

>> GROUP: A Chef

>> Rachel: It’s a Chef!

Many chefs go to a special school, called CULINARY school, to learn how to make the meals we enjoy at restaurants.  

Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth, and make sure to brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth (SFX). 

Here’s your next riddle: 

When your dog, cat or bird 

Is feeling sick -- or has fleas

This special kind of doctor

Is the person you go see

What am I?

>> GROUP: A Veterinarian 

>> Rachel: A Veterinarian.

Veterinarians are doctors for animals. (SFX BARK)

Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and don’t brush too hard (SFX). 

Here’s one last riddle for you to think about today:

I spend all day with FOSSILS 

DIGGING to explore!

Maybe I’ll find a skeleton!

Or the teeth of a dinosaur!

What am I? 

Come back to Chompers tonight to find out the answer. Till then, make sure to rinse before you... 

>> Kids: 3, 2, 1 spit!
