Classroom: Dental Health
The past week we discussed how different foods and drinks can affect our dental hygiene. We learned that our teeth get sad and full of tooth decay from sweets and soda and get happy and shiny and bright from brushing and eating healthy foods. We also learned that every tooth has a specific job. The incisors are used for cutting food, the canines are used for tearing food and the molars are used for grinding food. We talked about the importance of constantly visiting a doctor to take care of our health in every way! For parents, we recommend clicking here to find a pediatric doctor who can monitor your child’s health!

Kindergarten: Telling time to the hour
The past week the kindergarten students have been learning how to tell time to the hour. They learned that the long hand is the minute hand and the short hand is the hour hand. They also learned that when the minute hand is pointing to the 12 it means zero minutes have past that hour and we can say it is __ o’clock.
