Brush Your Teeth
Brush your teeth,
Brush you teeth,
Give your teeth a treat.
Brush up and down and all around,
To keep them clean and neat!
Brush them once,
Brush them twice,
Brush three times a day.
Brush up and down and all around,
Keep cavities away!

Brush Your Teeth
(sung to "Row, Row, Row your Boat")
Brush, brush, brush your teeth, at least two times a day.
Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, fighting tooth decay.
Floss, floss, floss your teeth, every single day.
Gently, gently, gently, gently, whisking Plaque away.
Rinse, rinse, rinse your teeth, every single day.
Swishing, swishing, swishing, swishing, fighting tooth decay.

February Lesson Plan Ideas

Teaching Tip: February Lesson Plan Ideas
Looking for some great ideas to include the theme of February in your lessons? We have a bunch.

1. February is African American History Month. Here are some lesson ideas.

2. February 2nd is Ground Hog Day.

3. February 4th is Rosa Park's birthday.

4. February 5th is Weatherman's Day. With most of North America experiencing a dry winter why not have students predict and track the weather? Then compare to the actual results. This can be a writing piece or a scientific method activity.

5. February 11th is National Inventors' Day. Perfect time for a science fair.

6. February 14th is Valentine's Day - We have 60 lesson ideas for you.

7. February 20th is Presidents' Day - See our Presidents' Day guide.

8. February is Love Your Pets Month - Have students write a thank you letter to their pets. More ideas can be found here.

9. February is American Heart Month.

10. Superbowl Sunday - include a football themed game to review your content. Each correct answer is worth 10 yards. An incorrect answer is a turn over. Make 10 slots on your board and break the class into 2 teams.
