Brush the Cavity Germs Away!


5

Instructions

To the tune of “Five Green and Speckled Frogs.” Use hand motions to show numbers, brushing, and germs falling away.

Here is my toothbrush! Pretend you are holding your toothbrush! And pretend we have cavity germs in our mouths. In our song there are three cavity germs—count them with me! Place the cavity germ felt pieces on the felt board as you count 1, 2, 3 with the children. Let’s see what happens to them.

Three tiny cavity germs

Sticking to all my teeth

Waiting for sweet and sticky treats

Oh, no!

One got all brushed away,

It simply could not stay. Use the toothbrush to “brush” one germ piece off.

Now there are two tiny cavity germs

Oh, no!

Two tiny cavity germs

Sticking to all my teeth

Waiting for chips and apple juice

Oh, no!

One got all brushed away,

It simply could not stay. Use the toothbrush to “brush” one germ piece off.

Now there is one tiny cavity germ

Oh, no!

One tiny cavity germ

Sticking to all my teeth

Waiting for one more treat to eat

Oh, no!

It’s been brushed away,

It simply could not stay. Use the toothbrush to “brush” one germ piece off.

Now there are no more cavity germs

Yippee!
