Study dental health while incorporating STEM, writing prompts, class books, center activities, math, and more with this unit all about The Tooth Fairy and El Ráton Pérez! This unit is especially perfect for classrooms with ESL learners.

Have you heard of this famous mouse? The legend is that El Ráton Pérez is the little mouse that takes the teeth from under the pillow in Latin America and most European countries. The class book included will explain to students how in America we have a tooth fairy, while in other places El Ráton Pérez collects the teeth. There is also a letter explanation for parents so they will be prepared to play along if they wish.

This resource provides the perfect way to work on early writing skills, complete a STEM project, work on differentiated writing prompts, counting skills, and so much more.
