My Daily Routine
I usually wake up at 06:30 in the morning. I wash my face and brush my hair. Then I go downstairs and eat my breakfast. Every day I eat fruit and cereal. After breakfast, I brush my teeth and pack my bag for school. Mom gives me my lunch box and drives me to school at 07:30. Tuesday and Thursday are my favourite days of the week because Math is the first class of the day. At 12:00 we all go to the cafeteria to eat lunch.
I always sit with my best friend Sally. Her favourite day is Friday. At 03:00 the bus takes me home. I have a snack and finish my homework. I love to play with my little brother. He’s five years old. We play lots of different games but our favourite game is “hide and seek”. Sometimes dad plays with us too. After dinner the whole family watches some TV. Before bedtime I brush my teeth and mom reads me a story. I like stories about monsters and magic. Then mom and dad give me a hug and a kiss goodnight.
