Last week we focused on Oral hygiene. The children enjoyed role playing using the dental equipment. They told me about how they brush their teeth at home and what tooth brush they have πŸ˜€ we talked about what happens when we visit a dentist and also what foods are good and bad for our teeth 🦷

Was so impressed with the children last week. They completed this activity with very little help. They knew almost every food that was healthy or unhealthy for their teeth
