 Cubs Room Children will be adding dolls to ‘Home Corner’ over the coming weeks. This is based on a particular interest in babies, especially from a couple of our friends who are soon to become big siblings for the first time.

Incorporating Dental Week into the program has been enthusiastically received. Craft activities have included collages and toothbrush painting. Below, are the words to the song some parents have heard their children repeating at home.

 Brush Your Teeth Lyrics
from The Singable Songs Collection
When you wake up in the morning, it’s quarter to one
And you want to have a little fun
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch
When you wake up in the morning, it’s quarter to two
And you want to find something to do
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch
And when you wake up in the morning, it’s quarter to three
And your mind starts hummin’ tweedle dee dee
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch
When you wake up in the morning, it’s quarter to four
And you hear a big knock on the door
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch
When you wake up in the morning, it’s quarter to five
And you so happy to be alive
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch
You brush your teeth, ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch

The Bears have been following a child’s recent visit to the Dentist, which nicely falls in line with Dental Week. They have been discussing how our teeth get dirty and how to effectively clean our mouths. Below are photos of the associated activities and experiences such as toothbrush painting, cleaning the tooth activity, collage of healthy foods.
 
From this month our Pre Primary Children have a new curriculum that includes computer and literacy skills, Music with the Central Coast Conservatorium, Environmental Awareness as well as cooking and sporting activities. We look forward to hearing feedback from your children.
