Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Welcome back, folks, it's time for more Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show! 

Let’s get brushing! Start on the top of your mouth on one side, and brush all the way back to the molars. 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush! 

>> Rachel: It’s In Charge Week, and tonight we have some riddles to challenge you Chompions! 

Here’s your first one: 

I use my hands and ears

To lead you and set the tone

Whether you play violin,

A harp or saxophone.

Who am I? 

>> Group: A conductor!

>> Rachel: Of an orchestra!

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

You may have gone to a concert and seen the conductor of the orchestra. That’s the person standing in front of the musicians and waving their hands up and down (SFX). Even though it might look like it, they are not dancing (SFX ohh) - they’re giving directions to the musicians! See, the conductor is in charge of setting the tempo or rhythm of the music with their hands to show the musicians the right way and the right time to play a note. (SFX)

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

Here’s another riddle: 

I love my job

It’s full of fun!

I answer questions and snuggle 

My happy little one!

Who am I? 


>> Group: My grown-up!

>> Rachel: Switch your brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and brush the inside, outside, and chewing side of each tooth.. 

Your grown-up is in charge of YOU. (SFX baby) They’re here to take care of you. (SFX cartoon kiss) That means they’re in charge of making sure you always have everything you need to be happy and safe. So sometimes it means dressing you, taking you to school, or making sure you eat enough veggies for your body to be healthy. Sometimes it means telling you what to do, so you can learn and grow! Thanks grown-ups!  (SFX cartoon kiss) 

That's it for Chompers tonight, but come back tomorrow! Until then, 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit.
