I firmly believe that I should give my students the best that I can – the best education, the best version of me, and the best resources. Sure, it doesn’t happen every day, all day, but I definitely strive to provide my kiddos the best opportunities possible. I believe I should provide for them an excellent educational, but also spiritually (you know I pray for my babies and their families!) and physically. One way I can provide for my students physically, though the help of Colgate, is to give them FREE TOOTHBRUSHES!
I LOVE the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures program! This is my third year to receive a class set of goodies for my students…for FREE. All I had to do was sign up and provide a little information about my class. This particular program is for K-1 classrooms. Just look at all the goodies that come with this kit!
Each of my students will receive a packet with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and an informational booklet.
They will also each receive a fun comic book about dental health. Anytime I can send a book home with my students, I’m one happy teacher. Seriously – I wish I could fill my students’ homes with their own personal library. That’s another topic for another time.
Also included in the box is a DVD that corresponds with the comic books. It’s about a 15 minute short video – perfect for a rainy indoor recess day!
I LOVE that there is a BIG BOOK version for the classroom to keep! My kiddos f.l.i.p. when they get to use a big book at the library center. Once again – this will be a book that my kiddos get excited to read, which is a definite win for me!
There are also several other posters and informational pieces for the teacher to pass out/post. But y’all – its all FREE! All you need to do is sign up. I love that I am able to provide a service for my students they they all need (I mean, when was the last time you changed your toothbrush??) and send home some solid information to keep them healthy. Plus, there is even a free app you can download!
It’s almost February – Dental Health Month! Sign up for your FREE KIT by clicking on the picture below! You'll definitely want this box to show up to your room soon!
Also, I’ve mentioned before that I have the funniest class in the world. They are also the sweetest. No, I’m not biased at all. It’s just the truth. Today two students and I had the best conversation:
Little M: Ms. Jackson, you're the best teacher ever!
Little K: No, Ms. Jackson is the second best teacher.
Me: What? Who is better than me?
Little K: God is the best, you're the second best.
Okay, I guess I'll take second place for that answer. Too sweet!
