This primary grade bulletin board is “no prep”…the printing has been done for you! It’s being sold as a “hard good”, so you get it in the mail already prepared for you.
I used this bb in my first grade classroom. What kid doesn’t think that losing a tooth isn’t a big deal? They want to be recognized for that! And…it’s an “achievement” that eventually happens to all of them.
This easy to put up bulletin board doesn’t need to be taken down until the year’s end. It MUST stay up all year to give everyone a fair chance to get their tooth into Tooth Count’s castle!
Those who didn’t lose their teeth during the school year can be given a bunch of blank teeth and a paper strip to glue the teeth onto over the summer. Also, the personalized paper strips that have had teeth already glued on over the course of the school year can be given to the matching student as a memento at the end of the school year.
Included are 2 stand alone castles,a 3-D castle with castle parts, a vampire, flying bats, 100 teeth, 2 options for borders, castle flags, title castle banner, directions.
The teeth can be cut on their outlines (in the shape of teeth) and glued directly on the castle. OR they can be cut out on the straight lines framing them, forming a box. You can even start a “strip” for each student to glue a tooth onto when needed. These strips can be attached to the castle.
I have included a page of pre-made strips that are a perfect size for the teeth…use these as guides to make many more out of construction paper if you need extra. (you can print out more, but using construction paper saves on printing costs).
There’s no need to draw columns or make a grid on the castle with the student’s name(s) at the top of each column. To save you time, all you have to do is write the student’s name directly on the tooth. Start a row or column for that child with their first displayed tooth or with a strip having their first tooth.
