The Tooth of the matter is October is National Dental Hygiene. While that has “All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth” playing in my head, I know some with be using this month to emphasize proper tooth brushing with kids. This post pulls a few resources to add a little music to the brushing.
1) Here are a couple of samples of songs from Songs for Teaching:
2) The University of Michigan School of Dentistry has a collection of book titles, worksheets, songs, and games for a variety of ages.
3) 1dental,com has three easy partner songs of “Are Your Teeth Clean & White (to: “Do Your Ears Hang Low”), “Got My Toothpaste” (to: “Twinkle, Twinkle”), and “I’ve Been Brushing” (to: “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad”).
4) Weideman Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics has a list of 5 more additional partner songs including two for their seahorse mascot. They also have other fun resources worth checking out.
