Toothbrushes, anyone?

At Christmas, I received a ton of toothbrushes  and toothpaste from the good folks at FBBC in New Paris, PA.  Most of the toothbrushes and all the toothpaste were given out at Christmas.  More toothbrushes were given at Easter.  But I still had a number of brushes left.  What to do with them??  The toothbrushes inspired me to do a language lesson on teeth.  The kids in kindergarten learned words like tooth, teeth, mouth, lips, tongue, toothbrush, toothpaste and dentist.  Then the kids each got to pick out their own toothbrush and we learned how to brush our teeth the correct way.  And we even learned the toothbrushing song: (to the tune of Row, Row, Row your Boat) Brush, Brush, Brush your teeth, each and everyday. Brush, Brush, Brush, Brush, Brush your teeth today. Go on, you know you want to sing it…..

When was the last time you got to stick your tongue out at your teacher and not get in trouble?
