We started our day with some questions. What do we use to chew our food? How can you take care of your teeth? This sparked much discussion about ways that we can care for our teeth. Ask your preschooler if they remember some ways to take care of their teeth.
During centers each preschooler was given a mouth that had no teeth. Each preschooler was given paper squares to glue into the mouth. As each preschooler was gluing I went around and asked “How can you take care of your teeth”. Each preschooler gave an answer and these will be hung in the hallway with their teeth creations.
Some other centers were:
-painting at the easel with toothbrushes
-using play dough, mega blocks and yarn to “floss teeth”
-number recognition activity, counting and one to one correspondence
Zippy came to visit during Jesus time and was feeling down. He felt he was unimportant because he was not big enough to do some of the things he wanted. We reminded him that even though he is little, he is important to Jesus, just as all of us are.
We began learning a song this week all about brushing our teeth. Ask your preschooler if they remember the words.
See some of you tomorrow!
