Mrs. Howe's First Blog Entry: Our Special Dental Presentation

Today Mrs. Howe and her Grade One class decided to write their first blog. We hope you enjoy it.

This morning we had a dental presentation from one of our parents and two other students who are attending the Ontario Dental Education Institute. The students learned about good brushing and flossing habits as well as healthy foods for teeth. The presenters came dressed in Tooth, Tooth Fairy and Dental Hygienist costumes which excited the children and helped them to better understand the importance of good Tooth Care!

Here are some of the comments the students had after the presentation:

Maleeha liked when she saw the Tooth Fairy.

Victoria and Nicholle said, "I liked when we got the loot bags with new toothbrushes".

Shay's favourite part was when she brushed Bob the Builder's Teeth.

Milan liked when the Tooth Fairy told us the story.

Jenna liked seeing the tooth.

Zain said, " I liked when I got to see my mom helping the Tooth Fairy".

Sabrina said, "I like when the dentist brushed off the sugar bugs".

Here is a VoiceThread presentation that we made to comment on some of the photographs that we took today. You can comment on this VoiceThread too. We hope you do!

Way to go, Mrs. Howe! Your VoiceThread looks and sounds amazing, and it's clear that your students learned a lot. I'm glad that you shared this with all of us. Maybe some of the students from the other Grade 1 classes can comment on what they learned after reading the blog post and viewing the VoiceThread. I can't wait to see what people say!

P.S. Mrs Davey here again. Can you find the spelling mistake in my comment? Oops.

Thanks Mrs. Davey! We're so glad that you enjoyed our first blog entry, and so excited that you read and commented on this entry all the way from Australia. If you write a blog, we hope that you will share it with us too. We would love to see and hear what you have to say!

P.S. Don't worry about the spelling mistake/typo either! It took us a couple of times to read it through to realize the hear/here problem.
