The free membership printable this week is tooth fairy number clip cards which is great for letter recognition as well as fine motor. I printed all the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
I mixed the number cards up and set them out along with clothespins. I put mine in a clear plastic container but you can put yours in whatever works for you. I have included numbers 0-30 so you can choose to put all out or just a few.
In this activity children pick a card and clip a clothespin on the number that matches the number on the tooth fairy. I have also included cover-up squares if you do not want to use clothespins. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday February 14th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is also where the tooth fairy alphabet clip cards are located.
We worked on letter identification with an uppercase vs. lowercase sorting activity. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and laminated them. I then attached the uppercase and lowercase tags to baskets I purchased from the dollar store.
I set the baskets and letter cards out in our center and the children picked a card ... said what letter it was and then put it in the correct basket based on whether it was an uppercase or lowercase letter.
The children really enjoyed this activity so I will be making more of them for different themes!! I did include alternate sorting tags that read "Uppercase Letters" and "Lowercase Letters" instead of tags with all upper or all lower.

I made roll and cover math center activity for our dental health theme. I folded a red piece of colored cardstock paper in half and cut out a three-quarter circle shape. I opened the shape and glued a cardstock paper tongue on the bottom half of the mouth. I also drew sixteen circles on both the top and bottom of the mouth for a total of thirty two. The final step was to laminate the mouth.
I set out white buttons and dice for the children to use with this activity. They rolled the dice and then used the buttons to cover up the same number of circles on the mouth. Play continued until all of the circles were covered with buttons.
This can be done as both an individual as well as group activity. If playing as a group each child would get their own mouth mat and buttons. I have also used white playdough in the past for this activity and it turned out well.

In this activity the children find the the tooth fairy and tooth with the same number and clip them together with a clothespin. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday February 22nd ... after that they will only be available in the member's section.
