Since my kids were young, I’ve done my best to instill a good habit of teeth brushing.
I figure if they had the habit down as kids, it would be easy to maintain good teeth habits as adults. We will find out if this is true one day. But for now, I just have to work on getting them to take care of their teeth.
The best method I’ve found is showing them what happens when you don’t take care of your teeth. Not the worst case scenarios, but the more common ones. Root canals, extractions, and such.
But we also like to pretend play. And why not work in some dentist pretend play to learn about teeth?
This printable pack has multiple parts. Some of it is all about taking care of teeth. It includes a cute easy reader and a daily brushing and flossing tracker.
There’s also a math section with all kinds of math. Addition, subtraction, fractions, measurement, and more.
The language arts sections include dentist vocabulary, writing, reading, and digraphs.
