A Healthy Day Story

Sparks act out the story as you read it.

Crystal was sleeping.  It was morning.  She woke up and yawned and stretched.  After going to the bathroom, she washed her hands.  She turned on the water and got her hands good and wet, then she lathered them with soap and scrubbed her hands.  Next she rinsed all the soap off and dried her hands with a towel. 

Crystal's mother was in the kitchen making breakfast.  Crystal had an egg and a piece of toast, a glass of orange juice and a banana.

After breakfast Crystal brushed her teeth.  She put a pea-sized dab of toothpaste on her brush, wet it with water and brushed her teeth.  She brushed her front teeth and her side teeth and her back teeth. She even brushed the inside of all her teeth. Crystal rinsed her toothbrush off and put it away.

Then she washed her face. She made the water nicely warm and wet her face. She put a bit of soap on her hands and rubbed them together to make lots of lather, then she scrubbed her face all over. With a wet face cloth, she wiped the soap off. She washed her hands, too, then she dried her face and her hands.

Next, Crystal combed her hair, making sure to get all the tangles out. She put a pretty barrette in her hair to hold back her bangs, so she could see properly.  Now Crystal was ready to get dressed and go off to school.
