Why are we spying on a cat on today's Chompers? Find out tonight!

Where to Listen


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

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

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush! 

>> Rachel: It’s In Charge Week, and tonight we’ve got more I Spies for you. We’ll describe something, and you get to guess what it is! 

Here’s your first I Spy: 

Oh, I’m at an ice hockey game. (SFX whistle) Huh, something happened. Everyone stopped playing and one of the players is talking to the REFEREE. The player has a big C on her shirt - and she’s arguing with the referee for her teammate.

Find out who this is after you switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, but don’t brush too hard. 

So, who do I spy?

>> Group: the TEAM CAPTAIN

>> Rachel: Yessssss, and more specifically, the captain of an ice hockey team. In ice hockey, the captain of a team is THE one player who’s allowed to speak to the referee to talk about the rules or a decision the referee made.  The captain might tell the ref - HEY! My teammate didn’t break the rules!

In sports, the captain of a team is also the leader and role model. So the captain holds the team together (SFX cheering) and sets an example for their teammates, not just during a game but off the ice too. 

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

Here’s another I Spy - this one proves that ANYONE can be a leader of some sort. 

I spy an orange cat (SFX Meow) meowing at people, so they’ll come and pet and snuggle him. 

Who do I spy? Shout it out:

>> ZAC: A cat!

>> Rachel: Right …I told you it was a cat. But it’s not just any cat! Remember it’s In Charge week. 

>> ZAC: A cat … boss?

>> Rachel: Almost, it’s Mayor Stubbs. Stubbs was the mayor of a town called Talkeetna, Alaska.  

>> ZAC: This is nonsense. 

>> Rachel: No it’s not! 

(SFX Zac walks away and slams door)

>> Rachel: I’ll tell you more after you switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and don’t forget the molars in the back. 

Mayor Stubbs was chosen by the people of Talkeetna to be their mayor. Most mayors are picked when people vote for, or choose their leader. Whoever gets the most votes, wins!  And guess what -- the people who live in Talkeetna picked STUBBS!

It might sound funny, but that’s how voting works! The people’s voice will be heard! (SFX MEOW) Oh, sorry Mayor Stubbs - the people’s meows. (SFX purring cat) 

That’s it for Chompers tonight, but come back tomorrow with a clean toothbrush! Until then, rinse before you 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
