Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the poem and do the activities.
Game of chores
At home we always play a game
When it’s time to tidy up
We score some points for household chores
And win the housework cup!
Dust the shelves to get one point
One more to sweep the floor
And if you vacuum all the rugs
Then you’ll get two points more.
In the bathroom, one point each
To clean the shower and sink
The toilet is the one we hate
So that’s five points, I think!
We lay the table for one point
And cook some food for two
And if you do the washing-up
Here’s three more points for you.
Some extra chores can win two points
Like if you clean Mum’s car
And also if you walk the dog
And take it very far.
So that’s my game, now ask yourself
(If you want to play)
How many points could you score
If you tidied up today?
