Inquiry wonderings: TEETH health

This week we have been FINDING OUT about teeth care.  Some of the wonderings we had included:

What ingredients go in tooth paste?  How can we stop out teeth from going yellow?  How can we look after our teeth?  What happens if we don’t brush our teeth?

As we read information texts on this topic, we learned how to take notes (recorded in key words) and Miss M modelled how to turn noted into your own summary.

We read information texts found on some websites.  We also viewed this YouTube Clip:

Kim (Oscar B in Grade 3’s mum) commented on an earlier post.  She shared a link to a very useful website (  On the website I found this great pamphlet:


Read this together as a family – it could be recorded in your Reading Journal.  Thanks Kim for helping us out.

What is the most important thing we discovered about looking after the health of our teeth?  Do we still have any TEETH CARE wonderings?

Class Photographer for the day #1

At the end of each week we discover who is our Dojo winner of the week.  This is very exciting and usually it is very close!  The winner (or winners) gets to select a reward from the Dojo Chart.  So far winners have chosen to lunch with the teacher out on the school deck, having a soft toy day, swapping their sit for the wobble chair, moving their desk, and a few others.  When Jack B was the winner, he selected to have the class camera for a day.  After a few technical difficulties, Jack got to take as many photos as he liked.  At the end of the day we watched his photos.  This is what we saw:

Looks like Jack might be a budding photographer 🙂
