T is for Teeth

To help us with our T is for Teeth theme, we had a special guest visitor: Dr. Daniel Perry. The kids really enjoyed having a REAL dentist talk to them about proper care for their teeth and they were a great audience!

(yes, there are a few more kids then usual--Dr. Dan's kids were visiting as well)

We had fun learning about how what we eat affects our teeth. Dr. Dan gave each child various pictures or items and they had to decide if it was good for your teeth (goes with the happy tooth on the left) or bad for your teeth (the sad tooth with decay spots on the right).

We also learned about how to take care of our teeth.  We even practiced flossing by using string (floss) and a partners fingers (teeth)

A huge thanks to Dr. Dan for taking the time to visit our class!!
