Story 10: Making Noises with My Body Upsets People
We can make noises caused by wind in our stomach.
We can make noises with our mouth and our bottom.
Everyone does this sometimes.
Noises with our mouth are called burping or belching.
Noises with our bottom are called breaking wind, farting or pooping.
Some people think this is very funny.
But lots of people think it is not funny.
It makes them feel uncomfortable because of the bad smell.
So when there are people about we try not to do it.
Then most people will feel OK.
I will try to do it only when I am alone.
I will not fart or burp in the classroom.
Then I will not upset anyone.
