    4. 4. ACTIVITY Give each child a copy of the following poem and read it aloud while students follow along. As a follow-up, students can draw pictures of the Goops or of people eating with proper table manners. This poem could also be used for copy work or memorization. The Goops The Goops they lick their fingers, And the Goops they lick their knives; They spill their broth on the tablecloth -- Oh, they lead disgusting lives! The Goops they talk while eating, And loud and fast they chew; And that is why I'm glad that I Am not a Goop -- Are you? The Goops are gluttonous and rude, They gug and gumble with their food; They throw their crumbs upon the floor, And at dessert they tease for more. They will not eat their soup and bread but like to gobble sweets, instead, And this is why I oft decline, When I am asked to stay and dine!&quot;
