A Dentist office is a fun and easy way to teach children about proper teeth cleaning. This way of teaching gives children the opportunity to be fully engaged in experiences while making it fun for them. Many materials could be added to this dramatic centre and it ties into ELECT 3.3 for infants (expressive language skills) as they learn words such as "dentist" and "toothbrush". It also ties into ELECT 1.3 for toddlers (parallel play) as children play alongside each other using role playing.
Healthy Teeth versus Unhealthy Teeth... I made this poster board for preschool children. You can use this for several activities. One activity I am going to do is ask children to tell me some foods that are good for our teeth and some foods that aren't good for our teeth..this will than lead into another discussion that I plan on having with my students ☺️
