Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the poem and do the activities.
Mum says I have to brush my teeth
In the morning and at night.
They look and taste much better
But I hate it when she’s right.
Dad says I have to take a bath
And wash my body well.
I do feel nice and clean and fresh
But now he’s right as well!
My brother says I have to wash
My hands to keep them clean.
He’s right, my fingers feel so good
Without dirt in between.
My sister says I have to eat
Some vegetables each day.
She’s right, I have more energy
To run and walk and play.
I feel more healthy and I’ve got
Much better teeth and skin.
Don’t tell them that I think they’re right –
I hate it when they win!

In my family, I am the only person to like staying healthy. I mean, it is vital to me, and I am very worried about it. Eating vegetables, doing activities, and taking showers are not very crucial for others.
