I put this mini unit plan together to help the kids get excited and understand their trip to the dentist. Read on for educational resources about teeth and seeing the dentist - maybe for the first time!
I asked, "Who is your favorite author?" My son answered Eric Carle without a second's hesitation. Our house is filled with Carle's board books, flap books, and classic hardcovers that will last for many years to come. Read on for a complete list of Eric Carle books currently in print with links to over 40 read alouds.

The election is quickly approaching and the oldest has shown some interest. While we chat about politics at the dinner table he asks, "What's a debate?" and the next morning says, "So who is the new president?"
I can't fail him on this one. This is important stuff.
We had so much fun learning about our senses this month. I was just planning on some light reading and taking the oldest to a class, but as usual he had other plans. It turned into a full unit. Ease up, kid! I'm suffering from teacher burnout with a class of one in September.
The few more. I made the mistake of mentioning that we don't really ONLY have five senses. So we explored a few more - like sense of balance, hunger and thirst, and direction. Every time we saw something that said "5 senses" he's give me a little wink-wink, nudge-nudge meaning, "Yeah but WE know there are more than five, right mom? Riiiiiiight?" He thinks he's so smart.
