I lost a tooth but I don't care
Another one is growing there!
The Tooth Poem

The Tooth Poem
I've got a loose tooth,
a wiggly, squiggly loose tooth.
I've got a loost tooth,
a-hanging by a thread.

I lost my loose tooth,
my wiggly, squiggly loose tooth.
I put it beneath my pillow
and then I went to bed.
Someone took my loose tooth,
my wiggly, squiggly loose tooth.
Now, I've got a nickel
and a hole in my head!~~Unknown Source

The Tooth Poem

A tooth fell out and left a space,
so big my tongue can touch my face.
And every time I smile I show
a space where something used to grow.
I miss my tooth as you can guess.
But then, I love to brush one less! ~~Unknown Source~

Categorizing Foods
For a research and categorizing activity each child folds a large piece of construction paper in half. On one side we glue a picture of a happy tooth and call him "Charlie Chew"... One the other side we glue a clip art picture of a sad tooth and call him "Tommy Toothache"..... The kids do a magazine search for healthy foods for teeth (fruits, vegetables, etc.) and glue them on the happy side, and sugary sweets for the sad side.

Brush, Brush, Brush your teeth
Brush three times each day
Brushing up and down and all around
Keeps cavities away!
