• Self-care and Manners:
- Although you will still need to supervise the child brushing his/her teeth, allow the child to start the process.  Help put the toothpaste on the brush and encourage the child to "make bubbles" while brushing their teeth.  Work up to brushing for 2 minutes or while singing the "ABC's" song twice.  Talk about brushing the front, back, top, and bottom softly.

- Mouth Worksheet Place the Brush Your Teeth worksheet in a ziptop bag or plastic cover.  Color the teeth with a black dry erase maker.  Using an old tooth brush, allow the child to brush the black away.
