Dental Health Month

We had a blast this week learning about dental health.  The kids were excited to learn and share what they already knew about keeping their teeth healthy.  I was inspired by A Cupcake for the Teacher, and we made her tooth and toothbrush craft!  Make sure you visit her adorable blog!  Here are some snapshots of our week...


I started the unit by reading a couple of books about teeth.  I read this adorable book about how a moose has a loose tooth and all of the animals try and help him pull it.  After I read the story, we made a class graph based on how many teeth we have lost.  I was surprised that most kids have not lost any teeth yet!



We talked about keeping our teeth healthy, what types of foods are good for our teeth, and what we use our teeth for.  Here are some of their ideas.





I made a worksheet where the children had to sort food and items that are good and bad for our teeth.  They cut and pasted the pictures to group them accordingly.



We also wrote sentences about how we can keep our teeth clean.  They had to write 1-4 sentences based on their ability and draw a picture that corresponded with their sentence.  Here are some examples:




Lastly, we made this adorable toothbrush and tooth craft!  I let each student make one tooth and one toothbrush.



After a week of fun activities, we know how to keep our teeth clean and healthy!

  4. It's fun to see children learning about the teeth while doing artwork. And they’re clearly enjoying what they were doing. You’re a great teacher for teaching them about the importance of taking care of their teeth at such a young age.

  6. Dental health for children is just as important as it is for adults. Since a child's original teeth are destined to fall out, it can seem unimportant to take proper care of them.

I had difficult time with my kid. He had dental issues and had to be taken to dental clinic but he was very afraid to go to one. So I started showing him different dentzz review and explained that it is important to go and there is nothing to fear. All thanks to Dentzz dental.
