Dental Health and a Freebie


Classroom Freebies Manic Monday
February is right around the corner.  Did you know that February is Dental Health month?  I really enjoy teaching dental health in kindergarten because the kids really relate.  Some students have already lost a tooth and most have already been to the dentist for the first time.  I actually spend two weeks on dental health and have the nurse come in to talk to the students too.  They love getting their own free toothbrush.

I am really excited this year to try out this healthy snack found on Pinterest!!  Apple slices, mini-marshmallows, and peanut butter.....  What kinder wouldn't love this snack?  Click the photo below to link to Pinterest.

The Dental Health Unit that I mentioned is a 63 page unit filled with literacy ideas.  The illustration below includes a few samples from the unit.  Bare with me though, because I am offering a free download at the end of this post.
 
I also came across this YouTube video to show my students.

The tune of this song and video is perfect for my students.  It will get them moving and so excited about learning.

Another interesting site I found was at the Crest website.  They offer student kits and teacher resources to help teach students about dental health.  I even read that they will send a CD or DVD to help supplement your teaching.  I have been told that Colgate also offers kits to teachers.

I also think this Pinterest idea was super cute and so easy too.


Now for the freebie!!  I created a 63 page Dental Health Literacy Unit and have found it to be full of writing and integrating activities for my studentsI enjoy the 3 Facts and a Fib portion of the unit the best.  So, I am offering just that portion of the unit for free.


I also used Stephany's fonts in the text boxes above.  Click the photo below to check out her fonts.  I love them!!  I used "Little Kid" and "Doodle Trip".


February will be here before we know it.  If you blog about either the Super Cute Fonts or the Dental Health 63 page Literacy Unit before February 1st, I will send you the Dental Health Unit for free.  Just comment that you blogged about it, leave the link and your email too.

Endless Possibilities,
Stephanie
