I found out that eating pickles is bad for your teeth.
Who knew? I sure didn't.
I decided I should "brush up" on my tooth knowledge... to get ready for this week of teaching all about Keepin' Our Teeth Healthy.....and so I was browsing a list from Health.com of the best and worst foods for your teeth....sticky candy, hard candy... yep... not good, got it... no news there....
but then it busts out at #5 with pickles....
But don't fret, in moderation, they are okay it reads....
Anyway, that is a random tidbit and comic relief rolled into one.
This year my little ones and are making a GIANT toothbrush craft with a promise on it.
Our promise is to brush our teeth at least two times a day. It also has a check off for the kids to document that they are brushing twice daily.
I put this craft along with a graphic organizer about healthy teeth into one little craftivity pack on Teachers Pay Teachers.
If you are doing a little tooth action this week you may want to get your hands on the book I Know Why I Brush my Teeth By, Kate Rowan. It isn't a short one... this thing is an in depth extravaganza, but the kids are engaged and love learning new vocabulary such as molars and incisors!
And this song Brusha Brusha is clearly for pre-school friends, but my kinders LOVE it! And no, it isn't the song in Grease!
And you know.... I have had great luck with getting local dentist offices to donate free toothbrushes... just ask!
I gotta run... I am off to brusha brusha myself!
