This bundle has 11 different preschool centers. Below you will find a description of each.
-Dental Health ABC Match
This alphabet match is great for preschoolers. There are two different options for your learners. Children can match capital and lowercase letters or match a picture to its beginning sound. There are also worksheets included to reinforce all of those skills.
-Dental Health Cube Measuring
This is a fun dental health Measuring activity that uses nonstandard units of measure. These are designed to work well with unifix or snap cubes. There are 1o cards included as well as a recording sheet.
-Dental Health Sorting
This center is perfect for February and dental health month. Children sort the 32 food cards into two categories: “healthy for teeth” or “unhealthy for teeth” Each category has 16 foods. I suggest using a large pocket chart to sort the cards into. There is also a worksheet included for children to cut and sort into the correct category to check for understanding.
-Dental Health Roll and Cover
This is a simple to use math center. Provide children with dice and manipulatives to cover the numbers. After children have rolled, they will find the number and cover it. play continues until all numbers are covered. There are two sets included. The first set is for numbers 1-6 and one die the second set is for numbers 1-12 and two dice.
-Dental Health Rhyming
This is a great way to work on rhyming with your preschoolers. Each card has a tooth on it with a picture. Children find the other tooth with the rhyming picture. This set includes 12 rhymes. There is also a worksheet included to reinforce the concept.
-Dental Health Cutting Practice
Cutting practice is a great way to practice cutting skills and build up those fine motor muscles. These pair well with any dental health theme and I know for a fact my preschooler cannot get enough of these. They could sit and cut them all day. Print on colored paper for added fun!
-Dental Health Dramatic Play
These signs are great for adding to a dentist office in the dramatic play area. There are signs, a patient checklist, tags to wear to identify roles, and labels for tools used. There is also a banner that reads “dentist office” with teeth for either side.
-Dental Health Toothy Numbers
If an engaging center is what you need, this math center is perfect. Children need to fill their tooth bag with 4 teeth. All 4 teeth will represent the same number. Pick a bag and find4 teeth to go in it. Each tooth has a ten frame, dice, domino or word. Pick and choose which teeth work best for your class. I like to add velcro to the bag and backs of the teeth to hold them in place.
-Dental Health Alphabet Tracing
This is a simple to use literacy center. Print, cut and laminate the cards and cut apart. Give children dry erase markers to trace the capital and lowercase letters. I find that using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works best for getting the cards clean. This set includes 26 cards with both capital and lowercase letters on the same card.
-Dental Health Tracing
This center is great for working on fine motor control. Print and laminate the cards. Children can then use a dry erase marker to trace the dotted lines. There are 12 cards included.
-Dental Health Alphabet Clip Boards
These were created to use with the alphabet clips that were found in the Target Dollar Spot. However, you can easily make your own clips using clothespins and writing letters on them (either capital or lowercase) These boards help children recognize and learn letters while building up fine motor skills! There are 8 boards total with a dental health theme. There are four boards with lowercase letters and four boards with capital letters. Depending on the level of your children they can either match capital to capital or lowercase to capital.
