Clean Teeth and Blue Water

This was one of our activities that we did today in class. We are learning about the ocean and fish so I thought they could pattern with snack fish crackers. They really had fun and as a special treat, they were allowed to eat their patterns. You can do this with anything really and they had so much fun. The "Wow" and "Really" that came from them was worth it. I typically don't let them eat the food they work/play with.

We also learned about the Dentist today. We first read the story, Going to the Dentist by Mercer Mayer.

We then discussed what happens at the dentist and let me tell you they talked and talked about their trips to the dentist. I thought it would be fun to teach them about how we care for our teeth. So, we created our own mouths.
We used marshmallows as teeth.

Tomorrow the children will take the toothbrushes that I bought for them at Dollar Tree and brush their little teeth. They will get a kick out of this.

We also made some Oceans in Bottles. The kids enjoyed this also. They used shells, sand, water and blue food coloring. We just added all the ingredients to the bottle and Ta Da finished. The kids shook it up and off they went!
