We've got some scholarly riddles for you about... school! Check them out on this morning's Chompers.

Where to Listen



>>RACHEL: Good morning class, it’s time for Chompers! Your twice daily tooth brushing show. 

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

>>KIDS: 3-2-1 Brush!


>>RACHEL: It’s School Week, and we’ve got some reading, writing and riddles in today’s lesson! I’ll describe a type of school, and you get to guess what it is. Ready for your first one?

My living room's a classroom

When I’m here I’m in the zone

I really love my teacher

Because my school is also home

So, what type of school is this? Shout it out.

>>GROUP: Home-school! 

>>RACHEL: Home-school. 

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


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

Being home-schooled means you do school… at home! 

>>KID: What?

>>RACHEL: Over 1 millions kids in the US are home-schooled every year. Kids who are home-schooled learn the same things that they teach at any other school…

>>KID: OH!

>>RACHEL: Kids can be home-schooled for lots of reasons, like if their families move around a lot, live in far away places, or if they just prefer to learn and teach at home. 

Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth…


>>RACHEL: -and brush your front teeth too.

Ready for your next riddle?

I go to school with other kids

But after school, we stay 

I spend the day AND night here

And sometimes home is far away

What kind of school is this?

>>GROUP: A boarding school!

>>RACHEL: A boarding school!

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


>>RACHEL: -and make tiny circles around each tooth.

A boarding school is a type of school where students live at school! Like ... Hogwarts, in Harry Potter! Without any magic of course.

>>KID:  AWW!

>>RACHEL:  And just like Hogwarts students are at boarding school to learn magic, some students go to boarding school to learn special skills - like riding horses…


>>RACHEL: speaking a language…

>>KID: Bonjour!

>>RACHEL: -or playing an instrument.



>>RACHEL: That’s all the time we have for Chompers class this morning, but before you rush off to your next class, don’t forget to…

>>KIDS: 3-2-1 Spit!
