February is Dental Health month. This week we learned all about healthy, happy teeth. We started our week with learning about the different kinds of teeth and their jobs. We found out from Dr. Rabbit in the movie The Legend of the Tooth Kingdom the right way to brush our teeth and the importance of brushing our teeth twice a day. We also completed two different writing projects. On the first one, we wrote the step by step directions for brushing your teeth. Our second project was to complete an application for the job of the Tooth Fairy. We had to answer some important questions like why do you want to be the Tooth Fairy? We ended the week by practicing our brushing and flossing skills.
