Washing Dishes


Peanut butter off plate,
Peanut butter off knife,
Peanut butter off spoon,

Scrub, scrub, scrub!
Now each thing has
No peanut butter.

Turn off water when through.

Plate in dishwasher,
Knife in dishwasher,
Spoon in dishwasher.

Bowl on bottom rack,
Glass on top.
See what else can fit,
One more plate.
Start the dishwasher?
No, wait!
Make sure it’s full!
Add that plate!

Save water!
Save energy!
Turn of water when through,
Make sure dishwasher is full.
