Montessori-inspired Self-Care: Dental Printable Pack

So many children struggle with caring for their teeth properly.  Some children aren't taught properly or decide not to listen when they are. Others have sensory aversions to the cleaning process.  Dentist appointments can be a nightmare.

No child fully understands the consequences of not caring for their teeth.  Parents can often become frustrated and quite desperate for helpful resources to use at home.

Teachers also share concern when it comes to dental hygiene.  Children may show up at school with bad breath and food items stuck in their teeth.  Caregivers may or may not be able to teach and provide for children in the home.  And those who are able to teach and provide may not be listened to.

The more we can educate children about the importance of dental hygiene at home and at school, the better their chances are of having healthy smiles when they are older.

This is the main purpose of the Montessori-inspired Self-Care: Dental Printable Pack!  It is the perfect resource for the home and classroom!

Montessori-inspired Self-Care: Dental Printable Pack

How to Care for Teeth

As mentioned in a previous post, we have four new students in our classroom this year.  They love to sleep in and most often arrive just after waking up in the morning.  We serve breakfast as part of our daily schedule and then provide everything they need to care for their teeth: toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash.  It's part of our daily routine at school.  If everyone is doing it, no one will feel uncomfortable during the process.

Sometimes the kids get lazy and decide to skip important steps in the teeth cleaning process.  Some of my kiddos do the same thing as well.

Sunshine tends to only brush her front teeth.  Bulldozer forgets to brush all together as he often is distracted by other more pleasurable tasks.  Princess forgets mouthwash if she's in a hurry.

Every child I know could use some visual reminders to help through the process.  The Montessori-inspired Self-Care Dental Printable Pack provides them and so much more!

Going to the Dentist

I don't know of a single child who loves going to the dentist.  Appointments can often be scary and cause extreme anxiety.  This doesn't have to be the case though.

What if you had the proper materials to educate children about what a dentist appointment is like?

The Montessori-inspired Self-Care Dental Printable Pack does just that! Whether you're looking for sequence cards, a social story, or dental tool nomenclature cards, this pack has it all!

You may wonder how we could give you all of this?  The father of the students I teach is a dentist!  He helped me put this all together.  We then confirmed it all with a second dentist we know in town.  I assure you this printable pack is top notch.

Montessori-inspired Self-Care: Kitchen Tasks Freebie

It is so important for children to learn how to care for themselves and become independent in as many ways as possible, no matter their age or abilities. 

For this reason, we put a heavy emphasis on practical life tasks, especially those in the kitchen.

But, just teaching a child how to complete a kitchen task may not be enough. Some children need extra visual supports, like the Montessori-inspired Self-Care: Kitchen Tasks Freebie.

Children are often so excited to help out with the dishes, but may not know how to go about completing the job independently. Cut and laminate these cards, place them near the sink, and you're good to go!

This printable is designed to be used with the Montessori-inspired Self-Care: Kitchen Tasks Printable Pack, but can be used alone.
