SCENE 1
Bob is over at OSCARs TRASH CAN, where SLOPPY, SLIMEYs baby sister, is staying for the day. SLIMEY tells OSCAR he wishes SLOPPY could crawl so she can play with him. Bob then learns an interesting fact about WORM babies: before they can crawl, they have to learn how to wiggle. OSCAR thinks it’s a good idea to teach her how to wiggle. To encourage her, he sings "You've Got to Learn How to Wiggle". Bob & all their friends appear & join in. After the song, SLOPPY, instead takes a nap.

We see the girl getting ready to go to school, as she washes herself & brushes her teeth, puts on her clothes, brushes her hair, & takes her lunch, all with some help from her mother. We see her walking past her neighbors & watching her classmates play outside as she arrives at school. The bell rings & the girl enters the school, where the teacher is passing out chalk to her students. We see the teacher teaching the students the English words: "a boy", "a girl", "a man", "a woman," which she has written on the board, along with a drawing for each word. The students repeat the words, then write them down on their individual chalkboards as we hear the girl remark, "We are learning to read & write." The students then jump up & down, as the teacher looks on, smiling. Next, we see the students jumping outside excitedly, now that school has finished.
