Writing Letters to The Tooth Fairy

11 April 2011
As part of my letter writing unit (Click {here} to check it out), my students wrote letters to the Tooth Fairy and created Tooth Fairy crafts.  We read the books Dear Tooth Fairy by Alan Durant and You Think it's Easy Being the Tooth Fairy by Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt .  Then for fun, we watch The Tooth Fairy, starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.  It was a great movie to show kids that boys can be Tooth Fairies, too.  Finally, the "Tooth Fairy" wrote the kids back!  Some of the children said it was "the best day of their lives!"  How cute.

  2. That's too cute. I always wonder about some of the cutsie projects that I see on your page, Deanna Jumps, and Babbling Abbys... do you cut out the pieces or do the kids? They just always look so darn cute.

  3. Jess, the scrapbooking paper is paper that I had already. I think the one on the right was in a Christmas pack from JoAnn's. I always buy them after the season and pick through.
    Mrs. Durning, I have the kids cut trace and cut out the almost all the pieces themselves. I star punched the stars and cut out the crowns for the girls. Otherwise, I let the kids do it.

  4. This is darling. I never did anything like this when I was teaching first grade and I wish I had! They sure love it when they loose a tooth!
