The Lost Tooth Club (freebie)

I had planned on sharing this at the beginning of the school year, but other posts took over.  Since lots of teachers are teaching about dental health these days, I figure why not now?  

When someone loses a tooth in my room, they get to sign a laminated tooth that's on our calendar wall, which is a really big deal.  At the end of each month, we transfer that month's tooth data to a graph, erase the names on the tooth, and start all over.  Here's a copy of the Lost Tooth Club graph for anyone who just might be interested.

  2. That's a cute idea! Your kiddos must be dying to lose a tooth just so they can sign their name on the chart!

  4. Isn't it funny how when one child loses a tooth you have to hear about all the other loose teeth in the class? Cracks me up:)

    1. Barbara, and then they all must start sticking their germy fingers into their mouths to increase the wiggliness of any loose teeth. :)
