Oral Health

Oral Health

I have been trying to include health lessons into our Science class.  My son is a very active 6 year old that does not have time to brush his teeth.  I felt that he needs to be reminded why brushing is so important to his health. Here is the learning resources that I used for this oral health lesson.

My son loves this model,  he enjoyed making it talk and bite things.  This model helped us discuss biting and how important it is to have good chompers to eat healthy food.  I plan to use this model for years to come as we address teeth and oral health.

I really like these books for our science lessons.

Shoot The Sight Words

Teaching a high energy 6 year old boy can prove to be very challenging.  The great thing about home schooling is that I can customize a learning plan to suit him.   My son got a Nerf gun for Christmas and wants to shoot everything.  I decided to give him something worth while to shoot.

In a previous post, I shared the sight word cards that I created to go with the sight word readers that i purchased from Amazon.
