Kindergarten Text Types



Murray is working out on the floor and sees the big weight. He really hopes to be able to lift it. He then hears an advertisement for a weight on the radio. So he dials the number for the delivery. The package comes in no time. Murray is so excited to use his new weight set that he keeps using it so his body is strong enough to lift the big weight.

Meanwhile, the Non-Realistic Wiggles come out and see Murray Exercising. They decide to exercise as well.

After a while, Murray is the only one left still exercising. Greg suggests Murray takes a break. But Murray keeps going. When Murray thinks he's strong enough to lift the heavy weight, he asks the Non-Realistic Wiggles to bring it to him.

Murray attempts to lift the big weight but fails. Later, Dorothy drops by to help the Wiggles clean up. Dorothy picks up the heavy weight like a piece of rope. The Wiggles are amazed about how strong Dorothy is. Without knowing its a medicine ball, Dorothy picks it up and throws it to Murray. The medicine ball is too heavy for Murray so he tumbles backwards while holding the ball.
