German KS2 / KS3: Morgenroutine

Two young German bloggers, Nikita and Daniela, explain their morning routine.

Daniela explains how she wakes up at 7am every morning and is always on time; Nikita explains how he gets up at 8am every morning and is always late – Daniela always takes a shower, whereas Nikita never has time.

Daniela has time for a healthy breakfast, whereas Nikita never has time because he is always trying to find his keys – he always takes a banana and then is seen wearing a banana costume because he is a banana.

Daniela explains how she is organised and Nikita explains how he is chaotic, yet they both have different and effective morning routines.
