Then we talked about our teeth. Things we should eat and things we need to do to keep our teeth healthy and strong. Here is June showing off her first set of teeth
and also Tripp also showed us his smile!!
I read thisbpook by Tedd Arnold about a little boy who was just sure that his body was falling apart from the inside out, starting with his losing of hair and belly button fuzz.
We talked about our whole body--our blood, heart, lungs, skeleton, skin and just about everything this fabulous body has.
Then I gave them a worksheet with the different parts of the body. They pasted the parts to the shell of a body.
When we were finished I had them use their fine motor skills by using this clothes pin to pick up the items in the dish. Of course we had a few of the pins break, but that is the trying experience of pinching something together to pick up the items. There was a little ninja soldier, a lizard, a button, a small eraser
Then I took some of these items, placed them on a tray, covered them and had them figure out which item was missing. They all did really well with this.
