Dental Health Month

We  all know that February is Dental health month and as I sit here eating ice cream with candy topping I am reminded that I need to start planning for some dental health activities. Here is what I have come up with.

1. Soak a hardboiled egg in cocacola and have the students brush the stain off, remind them of how important it is to brush everyday or else they get stained.

2. Use floss to create art, dip in glue and shape as you wish.

3. Get a supply of toothbrushes and let the children paint with them. If you tilt the toothbrush with bristles up towards the paper and run your finger through the bristles you get a splatter effect and the kids love it.

4. Create a tooth pattern. Outline with glue and glitter, don't shake off the excess. Allow to dry. Place the tooth on a tray and have the children brush it off.

5. Use teeth patterns to create a read the room activity and staple a few together to create a book that the children can record their words in.

My TpT unit on dental health has all of these ideas and more with a full size "A Trip to the Dentist" reader with tracing vocabulary and all of the teeth patterns, click the link below to check it out.

  3. Getting the kids to be aware of protecting their teeth and preventing tooth decay while they are still in their early ages surely helps. Yes, since they are kids, they easily get scared of an adult (other than their parents) handling them. Now these activities can make them realize that going to the dentist is fun, and taking care of their teeth is very wonderful!
