February - A trip to the dentist

February's theme is friendship which ties in so well with Valentines Day, but it is also Dental Health Month so we took a field trip to visit Dr. Matthew Tuft.  It was AWESOME!

Our letters in February were T is for teeth (obviously).
Here the kids were making mouths with 20 baby teeth.

We also learned U is for umbrella and under.  (We had snack that day UNDER the table.)

V is for Valentines.

W is for Washington (We learned about George Washington and the REAL story about his teeth.  Hint they were NOT made of wood.)  We read the book "George Washington's Teeth" and made this cute art project.  They are getting so much more competent with cutting out their own pieces.
I found this cute idea at

We also celebrated Groundhog Day in the very beginning of the month.  Here the kids are pretending to be groundhogs by crawling through our tunnels indoors.

Here's a cute song they learned about Groundhog day!

Using good books, music, art and movement help to solidify information and helps children to associate new ideas with previous ones.

  1. Raising the kids' awareness of oral health care is a great idea. It'll give them an idea of how important it is to take care of their chompers! I hope everyone participated in the activities. I'm sure everyone had a great day learning about their teeth. Thanks for sharing that, Cindy. All the best to you! :)
