Tooth Traditions

We are studying tooth traditions! We will learn about tooth traditions around the world. Did you know that in some countries instead of a tooth fairy,  a little mouse or a fairy rat comes for a lost tooth?! In other places children are expected to throw their tooth from the roof or bury it in the dirt. In certain countries lost teeth are kept by the family and made into charms. We will read lots of books to help us understand the various tooth traditions, but Throw Your Tooth on the Roof by Selby Beeler is a favorite book for this theme!
Beginning in December we will also begin to keep track of lost teeth on our blog. This lost tooth tally will be posted in the upper right hand corner of this blog page.
