We read books about teeth and dental health. We made a mouth model with construction paper and used marshmallows and glued on some teeth. We talked about food that makes the teeth strong and how water is good for the body and keeps you hydrated.

On the last week of February we started brushing our teeth in our class. We have three children at a time come into the bathroom and with the teacher’s assistance they are learning to identify their cup, toothbrush, cover and paste. The teacher will squeeze a pea size toothpaste and instruct them to brush teeth up and down, top teeth and bottom teeth and their tongue. We rinse, spit, rinse again and wipe face and dry our toothbrush, then they put cover on the toothbrush and place back into the cup.
