Spitting at People Is Wrong
Inside our bodies there are some liquids.
Snot comes out of my nose.
Spit comes out of my mouth.
Wee comes out of my penis.
People feel bad when they see these liquids coming out.
It makes them go,
All these liquids contain germs.
Germs are very tiny organisms too small for us to see.
Germs make us poorly.
If my germs touch someone that person may get poorly.
If I spit at someone they may catch my germs.
This may make them poorly.
Teachers will be cross with me.
I will try not to spit at people.
Then they will not feel bad.
They will not catch my germs and get poorly. My teacher will be pleased with me.
