Brushing and Flossing Fun!

Friends~It pays to be buddies with the school nurse!  She came and did a guest presentation with my 2nd graders for Dental Hygiene month.   She talked with them about proper brushing and flossing.  The did some really cool experiments and even made homemade toothpaste!  Check out the fun below!

This is a video of what acid does to your teeth!

 You can print them on return address labels.   

They even participated in this fun flossing activity.  I am so happy I got it videoed because I was able to show it to my 6 year old son when we were talking about brushing this past weekend. 

This is one of my very favorite books to use during Dental Hygiene month.  It explains the different customs for the Tooth Fairy around the world.  My students always get a kick out of it.

  3. Hi! I’m sharing with you the link to a video my sister in law made for her patients. She is a pedriatric dentist in Florida and it’s a parody of a David Guetta song. My 11 year old nephew is the singer and all the rest of the “actors” are her office staff. Your kids will love it. Hope you enjoy it!


  4. Thank you for sharing this tooth page. We read a tooth story in our reading anthology and this page will be a great follow up!
