Getting Up the Morning

At seven oclock in the morning the alarm-clock rings. It is time for me to get up. I dont want to get up early, but I must.

I jump out of bed and open the window. Then I turn on the radio do my morning exercises.

When I have done my morning exercises, I go to the bathroom and wash. I clean my teeth, wash my hands face and ears with cold water and dry myself with my towel.

When I have washed myself, I brush my hair with my hairbrush.

Then I dress, I put on my shirt, trousers and jacket, my socks and my boots. Now I am ready to go to breakfast.

My sister Lena has already got up, washed herself, brushed her hair, put on her dress, tights and shoes. She is sitting at the table having her breakfast. I take my place at the table too and Mother gives me my breakfast. Father has already had breakfast and has gone to work. Mother must get up early to prepare breakfast for all the family.

Now Lena has finished her breakfast. She is going to put on her coat and run to school.

It is eight oclock, Boris, Mother says to me. It is time for you to go to school.

I put my things in my school-bag and put my scarf and my coat on.

Good-bye, Mum! I say.
