I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
Whether you teach a unit on Dental Health or not.... you have to check out Brooke's latest unit Dental Health For Primary Learners. For $5.09, you get a 70 page unit packed with fun dental health activities that cover a multitude of concepts, so any of the lessons would be easy to integrate into your plans regardless of whether you are focusing on dental health or not. It contains a non-fiction book called "Whose Teeth are These?"( I absolutely LOVE this book!), graphing activities, problem solving, an inference investigation, 2 class books (These are so cute too!), an application to help the tooth fairy while she's on vacation, literature connections, media literacy-advertisement, and lots of great writing prompt ideas! The non-fiction text Brooke created even contains George Washington's teeth, so you could even connect the lessons to President's Day!
