Song on how to brush your teeth – instructions . What do we need to brush our teeth? What I find really helps is to do the activity and write down each step as I am doing it. This way, you make sure that you have not missed a step or written it down in the wrong place. You should always start each sentence with a verb (doing word) such as ‘OPEN’ the toothpaste or ‘TURN’ on the tap. Make sure you are writing each sentence using capital letters and full stops.
