What educators are saying

My students beg to do Toothy! It’s probably one of the most useful resources I have found on TPT! Thank you!
I love Toothy! My students love drawing the teeth and I love that they have a fun and engaging way to learn and review their Phonics skills!


Phonics Toothy® task kits are highly engaging task card games and activities that allow students to practice phonics skills and answer questions in a fun, motivating way. The answers on the back of the cards make the activity self-paced and self-correcting. Teach the rules for Toothy® once at the beginning of the year, then simply switch out the topic each week and use the activity all year for centers, small group, and more!

Toothy™ Task Kits- an original idea from Angie Olson at ©Lucky Little Learners, LLC.

Each partner gets a Toothy mat and dry erase marker. Students will take turns choosing a card. Each student who is playing the game will solve the problem on their Toothy mat or dry erase board. When all who are playing have answered the question, they compare their answers and then turn the card over to check to see if their answer is correct. Those who have a correct answer get to draw a tooth in Toothy’s mouth on their mat. If the student’s answer is incorrect, they do not draw a tooth and those who got the answer correct must explain how they got to the correct answer. Then the next student draws the next card and the process is repeated. The game is over once all the cards have been answered. The student with the most teeth in Toothy’s mouth is the winner of the game.
