Aistear: At the Dentist & Story Sack

During the year we explored the theme of the Dentist. I used the story Harry and the Dinosaurs go raaah to introduce the topic. We also covered the theme in conjunction with the HSE Mighty Mouth Programme.

To further explore the topic, I created a story sack for Harry and the Dinosaurs go raah. I downloaded character cut outs from Sparklebox, visit the link here.  I included the storybook and also a nonfiction book about visiting the dentist. I picked up the nonfiction book in my local bookshop, it is from a series called Off we go. Finally I added some activity sheets such as a colouring page and a word search which I found here.

I designed a task card and included a notebook for the parents responses. This was to encourage parental feedback as I began to introduce the concept of story sacks to the class. Visit my store to download a free copy of the task card for this story sack.
