Take the pain out of dental accidents

A

loud thud from another room, followed by a distressed cry – accidents always make a parent’s heart skip a beat. In many cases, everyday injuries of early childhood involve the teeth. Up to one in five young children sustain a dental injury, most often at home and during a normal daily routine. ‘It’s often a moment of immediate stress and anxiety,’ said Dr Rod Jennings of Toothbuds Paediatric Dentistry. ‘Even minor injuries to the mouth often involve bleeding, swelling and tears – try to keep calm and take the time to give pain relief, tidy up and take stock.’ ‘If there is swelling, consider applying an ice pack to the face or giving an icey pole to suck on – this can limit swelling and reduce pain. If there is bleeding, try to gently identify the source. If the bleeding is from from the lip or gum, try applying gentle pressure with a wet gauze or handkerchief if tolerable.’ ‘Where the teeth have sustained an impact, they may be chipped or loosened – seeking professional help is the best way forward. In the interim, chipped teeth can be very

sensitive – so avoid touching the chipped surface if possible. Where a tooth has been loosened or knocked out of position, even the minimal pressure of biting the teeth together can be painful. If your child needs to eat while awaiting professional help, try liquids through a straw or soft food that can be chewed with the back teeth.’ And if a tooth is knocked out of the mouth? ‘Store it submerged in milk, and seek professional help as soon as possible. Replanting a tooth that has been knocked out is not recommended, and could end up doing more damage!’ Many families struggle to find immediate help from a child-friendly dentist experienced managing dental injuries. ‘Consider looking for a Specialist Paediatric Dentist to help,’ said Dr Jennings. ‘Even seemingly minor injuries can have long-term consequences, including a risk of infection or damage to the adult teeth. Don’t risk it, make sure you follow up with experienced childfocused dental care.’

A smooth start to lifelong learning

D

id you know that 90% of all brain development occurs before children start school?

It’s a time when children are learning fast. And by the age of three years old, a child’s brain has more connections than at any other time in their life. It’s also a time when it’s essential to build a child’s confidence, so they grow up to be a passionate, curious and active learner. Goodstart has developed a Kindergarten Foundations program to support a smooth transition to kindergarten and a life of learning. Through play-based learning, the program builds coping skills, resilience and self-discipline, as well as building the foundations of literacy and numeracy. To understand how an individual program can help your child transition into Kindergarten in 2020, contact Goodstart on 1800 222 543 or visit goodstart.org.au

Can you live in a plastic-free world?

I

t’s Plastic Free July. That doesn’t mean you have to stop living your life but it’s very hard to live in this modern world without plastic. This Plastic Free July, try avoiding the unnecessary use of plastic, particularly single-use plastics like packaging, straws, coffee cup lids and plastic bags. These use a lot of resources, energy and effort to produce – and often we only use them for a few seconds before we throw them away. Very little of this single-use plastic is recycled. How much single-use plastic do you use? Get a basket and place all your single-use plastic in it over a week or the month. You’ll probably see that it’s a lot more than you thought. Face your waste.

Leaping to the challenge

A large part of the whole curriculum: understanding proportion

F

inn has been playing on the family’s trampoline since he was four. It’s the place to hang out with his friends, and the place for them to challenge themselves. They like to make their own videos of their tricks, posting the best ones to Instagram. Finn even managed to record himself jumping from the roof onto the trampoline – before mum and dad put a speedy stop to that particular challenge!

By Dion Alfonsi

P

roportion is one of the most challenging mathematical ideas for students to grasp. Yet it underpins a large part of the Australian Curriculum in all years.

When Finn saw how much his sister was enjoying lessons at NumberWorks’nWords, his mother suggested that he attend too. ‘I wasn’t nervous. I was excited,’ Finn said. ‘If you’re already good at maths it is a good place to go because you can improve more.’ Phone Janice at NumberWorks’nWords Subiaco on 9388 3727.

Finn (11) loves a challenge, whether it’s on the trampoline or in the classroom.

Anything that represents a ‘part of a whole’ can be considered a proportion – fractions, decimals, percentages and ratios. A shortfall in student understanding is that they compartmentalise each of these representations and hold the view that fractions, decimals, percentages and ratios are all different ideas. A more correct mathematical approach is to consider them as different representations of the same idea – proportions.

Do not wait until proportion is addressed at school. Have casual discussions involving a ‘part of a whole’. Use examples at home or in public, not only focussing on how proportions can be represented, but also how they can be verbalised. Visit fractiontalks.com for more information.

LAS/JUN19

Parkour and freestyle class are two of Finn’s favourite after school activities. NumberWorks’nWords is the third. Finn is a strong mathematician and, there, him and his friends also enjoy a good challenge.
