Hi. And my name is Elizabeth. And I’m going to be telling you about me. I’m very energetic.

Here are some things I like to do.

I like to run outside.

I like my hair up or in a ponytail.

I like to jump around outside.

I love to play sports, especially soccer.

And last but not least, I love to exercise every day.

One . . . two . . . ninety-nine . . . a hundred.

One . . . two . . . ninety-nine . . . a hundred.

One . . . two . . . ninety-nine . . . a hundred.

That was about me, Elizabeth.

Now let’s take a look at my couch potato sister, Chloe.

Hey, I’m Chloe. And I’m gonna be telling you about me.

So I’m like always on the couch; I never go to the grocery store. And I never really go outside or do any exercise.

“Oh, that’s funny. That’s so funny.”

Oh yeah, I’m just usually watch TV when I’m just sitting around doing nothing.

I eat cookies, frosting, marsh mellows, chips, pudding, dessert, drum sticks, corn dogs and ice-cream — chocolate ice cream.

I also play on electronics when I’m sitting here all day.

Oh yeah: playing Flabby Bird. This game is so addicting.

So that’s me, Chloe.
