READING THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD After many years of practice in the area of paediatric optometry, I have realized that the requirements of a child's visual system - the way it functions, the demands placed upon it - differ from an adult in many ways. In early primary school, a child learns to read and write, so that they may utilize these skills to learn more effectively in the latter primary years. First we learn to read, then we read to learn. Reading well, reading efficiently, without undue strain, fatigue or blur, is not a given for many children. Eyes need to co-ordinate and focus, and the visual data needs then to be interpreted and processed by the brain. Children are our future. A thorough examination with a properly trained behavioural optometrist can ensure your child sees the world as best they can - nothing less is acceptable. Bookings for comprehensive eye examinations for children may be made with Dario, Optometrist.

Imaginative Artwork by Mona Khosravi 7 Years Old Balwyn North

Hey Kids Do you have a photo, artwork, joke, recipe, puzzle, fun facts etc to share with other kids in Boroondara? Email info@yourchildinboroondara.com.au How can we get paper clips to float on top of water? What to do

KIDS CORNER

“All beautiful rainbow fishes and different sea creation come out of sea and live with people peacefully�

* Fill a bowl with water * Drop some paper clips in. Do they float or sink? * Now find some tissue paper or paper towel (you may need to experiment to find the best paper) * Carefully balance some paper clips on the paper * Lower onto the surface of the water so it floats * Wait for the paper to absorb the water and sink to the bottom (I usually give it a gentle poke to speed it up) * The paper clips should be left floating on top of the water. This shows us how surface tension works. Denise Mitchell holds a Diploma of Children's Services, and a Diploma of Applied Chemistry and has successfully combined the two in her role as Childcare Manager at Kew NLC. She has been helping children to experiment for many years, and is passionate in introducing science to children in the preschool years in a practical, fun way using common household materials. She often conducts School Holiday programs, and both cooking and Science form an important part of the Shoestring Plus programs for 3-5 year olds held at Kew NLC on Weekday afternoons.
