Bye Bye, Baby Tooth

by Teresa Jennings

We're betting you will find this a useful song if you teach primary students! Every kid goes through the drama of losing baby teeth sooner or later, so they will definitely relate to the topic. It's the laid-back, no-big-deal musical style and lyrics we're hoping will help them cope a little better, if needed. Instead of focusing on pain or blood or fear (yikes!), it simply and casually says goodbye. It even downplays the coming loose with lightness (wiggle/jiggle). By the end of the song, your singers should be all smiles. Minus a tooth or two.
