Great Teeth!

Try this action rhyme during Dental Health Month.

Brush them 'til they're clean and bright.
  [show brushing movements]
Brush to keep them shiny white.
  [show a big smile]

Brush them in the morning's light.
  [stretch and yawn]
Brush at bedtime--when it's night.
  [put head to side on folded hands]

When it's time to check them out
You won' have to fuss or pout.
  [shake head side to side]

"Dr. Brush-em" will smile and say,
"You're teeth look great,
Hip, Hip Hooray!"
  [stand and raise arms on "Hip, Hip Hooray!"]
