February is Dental Health Month! This is seriously one of the most unlikely favorite units I teach in first grade. The students are really into themselves and learning about their bodies. They want so much to take good care of their bodies at this age, and listen so closely to find out how to do it!
We read Curious George Goes to the Dentist, What Does the Tooth Fairy Do With All Those Teeth, Dr.DeSoto, and I love the brainpopjr video about dental health (if you haven’t figured it out yet, I LOVE brainpopjr and think it’s a super investment as a teacher).
I have decided to put together some of the activities I’ve done in the past so you can enjoy them too!
