Index Cards

I found some index cards in Office Depot the other day cut the size of playing cards.  I plan on using them for all kinds of games.  Here is a link I found at Amazon

Dental Health Songs

Brush Your Teeth Sung to "Jingle Bells"
Brush your teeth, Brush your teeth (swish hands)
Give your teeth a treat  (Clap hands)
Brush up and down and all around  (Point up, down and around)
To keep them clean and neat.  (Clap hands)
Brush them once, Brush them twice  (Hold up fingers)
Brush three times a day  (Hold up fingers)
Brush up and down and all around  (Point up, down and around)
Keep cavities away.  (Clap hands)

My Toothbrush   Sung to "Jimmy Crack Corn"
I have a little toothbrush
I hold it very tight
I brush my teeth each morning
And then again at night
I go brush, brush, brush
And rinse, rinse, rinse
And then when they're clean
I'll blow you a kiss

Brush, brush, brush
Rinse, rinse, rinse
Brush, brush, brush
Rinse, rinse, rinse
Brush, brush, brush
Rinse, rinse, rinse
And then when they're clean
I'll blow you a kiss

The Toothbrush Song  Sung to "Row, Row, Row your Boat"
Pat to the beat
Brush, brush, brush your teeth
Brush them everyday
We put toothpaste on our brush 
To help stop tooth decay.

Swish hands to the beat
Floss, floss, floss your teeth
Floss them everyday
Using the string to clean between
Keeps the plaque away.
Clap hands to the beat
Clean, clean, clean your teeth
Clean them everyday
Your teeth will sparkle for years to come
In the most beautiful way.

I Had A Loose Tooth Sung to "Little White Duck"
I had a loose tooth
A wiggly, jiggly loose tooth
I had a loose tooth, hanging by a thread
So I pulled my loose tooth
This wiggly , jiggly loose tooth
And put it 'neath the pillow
When I went up to bed.
The fairies took my loose tooth
My wiggly, jiggly loose tooth
So now I have a nickel and a hole in my head.

High Score Hoops


This week is "High Score Hoops."  We are naming notes and shooting baskets in an attempt to have the highest score of the week.  The game needs the following items:
• Basketball hoop or trash can
• Ball
• Staff cards or Chord Cards
• Keyboard

1. First I have the students take a staff card and find the note on the piano and play it.  The must find the note in the correct place in order to move to the next step.
2. After identifying the correct note, they take a shot with the basketball.
3. I record the number of baskets made and notes named on a board.

Students are motivated to shoot baskets and gain a high score.  You can have a set number of cards to name or use a timer.  Chord cards are used for more advanced students.

I have also used this to drill any concept.  If they identify the symbol, clap the correct rhythm, etc . . they get to attempt a shot.  My boys beg for this game!

Thanks to Susan Paradis for this idea
