About Me

I'm a mom, a teacher, a student, a wife, and a scout leader. I am actually an education major currently working on my practicum in a 2nd grade classroom. I also home school my two children. I'm also a cub scout leader, a girl scout leader, and at church I'm the children's music leader. ;) I tend to stay a little busy. My state requires homeschoolers to keep a portfolio. I am going to use this blog as my portfolio.

What am I?

Teeth Day 2

Craft: I drew a tooth on a piece of paper per kid. Then I gave them each an old toothbrush and some white paint. Again, we practiced strokes to brush teeth as they painted the teeth white.

Science: I drew a happy tooth on a paper bag and a sad tooth on another. Then I grabbed different foods from around the kitchen and laid them out. The kids had to tell me which bag they went in -- will they make the teeth happy or the teeth sad?
Alternate: Cut out two teeth and draw a happy face on one and sad face on the other. Then go through magazines and cut out pictures of food and glue them to the appropriate tooth.

Little Tommy Toothbrush
Sung to : "Eensy, Weensy Spider"

Little Tommy Toothbrush
Had a big job to do.
He spread himself with toothpaste
And jumped up on a tooth.
He scrubbed and scrubbed the germs away
To prevent tooth decay.
Then Little Tommy Toothbrush
Jumped down and said, "Hooray!"

Snack: We ate the items from the happy tooth bag.
