The students in my class get so EXCITED when someone loses a tooth during the school day. It’s a really BIG deal! The children gather around that child and want to see exactly where it came out of his/her mouth.
The child gets to go to the health office and pick out a “special treasure” chest to keep the tooth safe until it’s home.
I created an assortment of “Congratulations” certificates just for this occasion. It’s a fun, positive way to recognize students in the classroom.
