Science Experiment: Teeth

Today we finished our science experiment about teeth.  We soaked teeth (eggs) in milk, juice and soda.  The teeth turned different colors.  It was gross!  The one in milk was white, the one in juice was yellow and brown, the one in soda was brown.  We brushed the teeth and they turned white.  Brushing your teeth is VERY important.

We also flossed teeth today.  We used floss (string) to remove plaque (putty) from our teeth (legos).   Flossing is hard to do.

Teeth

We are learning about teeth.  Today we did a science experiment.  We made plaque.  Ewwwww!  Plaque is not good for your teeth.  If it stays on your teeth, you can get a cavity.  Floss and brush your teeth to get the plaque off.

100 Day

Hip Hip Hooray, it’s the 100th day!  Thanks for celebrating the 100th day with us!  We had a LOT of fun 🙂

Students did a great job collecting 100 items!  We enjoyed looking at each other’s collection.  Thanks for helping your child at home with their collection.  They were very proud to show off their hard work!

Students made a necklace using 100 fruit loops.  First we counted 100 fruit loops using a hundred grid and then we laced them onto a string.  It was hard work!

When the students came back from lunch they found numbers everywhere!  They looked all around our classrooms to find 100 numbers!

Students also made crowns with 100 stickers or gum ball machines with 100 gum balls.

Thanks for showing your spirit and dressing up with us!  We had even more fun with our old lady or old man outfits!!!

100 Day

Great news!

Donorschoose.org:

DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on our site, and you can give any amount to the project that most inspires you.

Recently I wrote a grant for materials to use in the classroom.  Generous people donated to fund our project!  Our classroom now has new headphones to use with our technology.

We will be writing thank you notes and taking pictures of students using the headphones.  A permission slip is in your child’s folder (Welch friends) for permission to use your child’s photo for thank yous.  Thanks for your help!

Great news!
