I believe the second verse is one I modified from the original. I gave out die-cut toothbrushes
and the kids used them for the song.
Action RhymeI Love To Brush My Teeth
Tune: The Farmer In The Dell

I love to brush my teeth,
I love to brush my teeth,
Up and down and all around,
I love to brush my teeth.

I love to floss my teeth,
I love to floss my teeth,
In and out and all about,
I love to brush my teeth.

Brush, Brush, Brush Your Teeth,

They’ll by healthy, they’ll be strong,
if you treat them right.

I know how to brush my teeth
I brush on top and underneath
Up like a rocket 
Down like a plane
Back and forth like a choo-choo train.

Group ActivityClean the Alphabet Cavities Away

I made a giant tooth on our blackboard and then put up our giant magnet letters.
The kids then removed the alphabet cavities as we sang the ABCs.
