Healthy Teeth:
A Picture Poem


Arrange children into four groups and teach each group a stanza of this brief poem:

It's time to think about our teeth.
Those small white things that help us eat.

Brush them well 2 times a day
To help you fight tooth decay.

Have a grown up help you floss
Show those mouth germs just who's boss!

Finally, smile a happy smile
That shows bright teeth all the while!
Invite students in each group to create a picture showing their stanza of the poem. When pictures are complete, let each group display theirs and recite their stanza.
