Is It Important to Keep Teeth Healthy? SEL Lesson for Pre-K

A healthy smile is the most beautiful smile. Promote more happy and healthy smiles by teaching the most positive pre-kindergarten class how to take care of their dental health!

This lesson focuses on introducing the positive action of having good dental hygiene to pre-kindergartners. For a fun and learning activity, the teacher begins the lesson by demonstrating in class how to properly brush their teeth and make them sparkle. The students follow along and learn how to brush their teeth on their own.

After the demonstration, the students sing a song together about keeping their teeth clean, healthy, and white. This song teaches them that cleaning their teeth helps them stay away from oral infection, cavity, and gum disease, as they brush the bacteria away from their mouth.

"Good oral hygiene promises many health benefits to pre-kindergartners, including a positive self-concept as their clean and healthy teeth boost their confidence."

The lesson ends with the students promising to commit to keeping their teeth clean and healthy, then marking their Positive Behavior Chart.

Good oral hygiene promises many health benefits to pre-kindergartners, including a positive self-concept as their clean and healthy teeth boost their confidence. It also makes them feel good about themselves as they prevent illnesses related to oral health problems.

Moreover, dental health is said to be associated with students’ self-esteem, cognitive development, and overall physical health. Preventing dental problems has the potential to benefit their mental and physical development, as well as their relationships and academic performance.

Pre-kindergartners need help in learning how to properly keep their teeth healthy. Teach this lesson and help them keep their brightest smiles!
