Dental Health Month


February is Dental Health Month
Throughout the month during Social Studies and Health our lessons are filled with different acitivities.  This past week we had a local clinic come by and talk to our PreK/K students about the importance of keeping your teeth healthy. They brought along a puppet and a moler mascot. At the end of the prsentation we got a bonus! Each student recieved a goody bad with a toothbrush, floss, and a small tooth holder (for teeth that fall out). Students were really excited.
In the years past when a presenter cannot come, I call different dentist offices and ask for any donations they might be able to donate to our class.  It usually comes out successful and especially because the students love getting a new toothbrush. Here are some resources I have found on the web.
