Our Pearly Whites (and a little award)

I love a good reason to create another classroom book.  (Look here to check out the other classroom books I've posted about.)  Several years ago I found this idea on the Internet somewhere.  It's a fun one to make.  

As you can see there's only a little smile showing through the window.  When you turn the page you can see who the smile belongs to.  The kids love guessing whose smile they're looking at, and I love the high frequency words they're reading over and over.

I wonder if everyone's already seen this before, but it's one of my kids' favorite things to make while learning about their teeth, so I've added it to this post for the fun of it.

While I'm here I'd like to thank Natalie at Teachery Tidbits for awarding me the Liebster Award.  It was very sweet of her.  If you haven't been to her blog, please drop by.
