Roots of Empathy - Theme 3

Theme 3 - Caring and Planning for Baby

In this theme we are learning about caring and planning for the baby, with a focus on teething.  Growing new teeth happens with babies and also with children of their own age.


Teething is a traumatic time for many babies and can affect mood changes and sleep patterns.  A baby getting its first tooth is a 'milestone' a part of growing up.


Mrs Elliott came and told us the story of 'Sasha and the Wiggly Tooth'.

This story was about a little boy Sasha who lost his first tooth.


We talked about how it made us feel:
  • Was it painful?
  • Did you feel embarassed / Scared / worried or happy?

The children drew a picture of how they felt when they lost their first tooth.

Suki felt very proud wearing her kimono.
