Freebie February Day 23

Now that the popular holidays of February are over (Groundhog Day, Valentine's Day, Presidents' Day, Fat Tuesday, ...), 

it's about time to give some attention to Dental Health Month.

I love to use graphs for an anchor activity, so naturally, my students are asked to graph their responses to some dental health questions.

Other questions I use include:
  • What brand of toothpaste do you use?
  • How many times did you brush your teeth yesterday?
  • Have you been to the dentist since your last birthday?
  • How many teeth have you lost?

During our morning meeting, we discuss math concepts inherent in the graph, as well as the obvious dental health topics.

The teeth are laminated card stock.  I write their names with a Vis-a-Vis marker so that I can erase them and use them again next year.  There is a small piece of magnetic tape on the back so the students can easily attach them to my white board.  Try some dental health graphing.  I think you'll like it.

Today's FREEBIE is Hink Pinks for Kinders III.

These cards are the perfect introduction to hink pinks because they do not require reading. Each card has an image that evokes the 2 rhyming words of the hink pink. (Remember, hink pinks are 1 syllable words.) 

Did you get the answer to this one?  It's best vest. Young learners love these riddles once they get the hang of them.  They are also great for speech & language specialists.  Lots of ESL teachers use them for their English language learners.
