I have so many awesome followers that it is very hard to choose this one, but I have to give it to Kelley over at Buggy for Second Grade. She always leaves the sweetest comments on my posts and gives me encouragement on those tough days. I'm pretty sure that if we knew each other in real life, I'd want to be BFFs with her!!!
So did you know Dental Health Month is in February? I must confess, until this year, I didn't! We have been planning kick butt health units this year and Dental Health is no exception. My rockin' teaching partner, Erica, planned out this unit and let me just say, you all need your own Erica on your team, because this unit is SU-Weet (said just like that!) Our kiddos are making lapbooks that include types of teeth, parts of a tooth, dentist tools, and dental vocabulary. I will add pics in the morning, because I left them at school. We also did this cool experiment to see how toothpaste with fluoride helps protect your teeth. Erica soaked half the egg in the toothpaste mix for 3 days then we covered the whole egg in Vinegar overnight.
|The side with the X is the fluoride toothpaste side.|
Today when we looked at the egg the side that wasn't protected with the toothpaste was soft and squishy! My kids couldn't get over it and kept repeating how they were going home to brush their teeth!
And finally, what you have all been waiting for, the freebie!!! I updated my Long Vowel Racetrack games because when I printed them today, they weren't as large as I wanted. So I placed the updated versions of all 5 vowel racetracks at my TpT store.
The freebie is the Long A Vowel Racetrack. My kiddos love this game! Click here to download your copy.
