We introduced our “Dental Health” unit by reading Peppa Pig's Trip to the Dentist by, Scholastic Inc. and Sugar Bug Doug, by Ben Magleby. We then had a discussion about good dental hygiene. We practiced brushing our teeth and flossing, using a dental teeth model. We learned a new toothbrush song - Brush, brush your teeth, gently up and down. Visit your dentist twice a year and you won't have a frown.

On Thursday we had a discussion about the importance of physical activity. Some of the activities the children participated in were:
~Jumping and counting while holding onto a parachute
~The Hokey Pokey
~Running in place
~Creative movement to "Animal Action" song CD
~Exercising to the "Exersong" fitness CD
The children had such a fun learning experience playing the Bug Swat Letter Game. First the teacher called out a letter, then the children were instructed to find the correct letter card, tap the letter with a fly swatter, and then recite a word beginning with that letter.
In math this week we practiced a subtraction game using number cards and unifix blocks. We also practiced an addition game called Pop Up and Add. We were amazed at how fast the children caught on. What a smart class we have!
