Monash Editor’s Notice Board After all these long weekends and holidays, we are here, APRIL! Don’t wake up too early on Sunday April 3 as Daylight Saving Time ends and clocks are turned back one hour. One more hour of sleep, yeah! But that also means daytime is getting shorter and soon we will be having sunset early in the evening. We will have to look at indoor options instead. Find some local indoor entertainment for yourself from our magazine. Anzac Day will be on Monday April 25. Let’s take this chance to memorise all our great heroes that fought for peace and life. We have received so much response to our Hog’s Breath Voucher competition which is valued at $50 each. Thanks to all the participants. The two winners are: Brigitte Girstun and Dave Hackett. Congratulations! If you did not win please don’t give up. Keep trying! And the two colouring stars for the March competitions are Mia (5-year-old) for Eggs and Jenny (4-year-old) for Chantelle’s Wish. Well done Mia and Jenny! We are giving away fantastic prizes again this month. Firstly there are two family passes (each valued at $80) to two lucky readers to the Dog Lovers Show which runs from Friday 29th April to Sunday 1st May (9.30am – 5pm daily) at Royal Exhibition Building Melbourne.

Bunting Flags Decorate & Educate As a parent, you wish to surround your growing child with materials that are fun and educa onal for them. It would be an added bonus if the same materials can be decora ve and versa le too. Bun ng flags displaying le ers of the alphabet and numbers meet all these requirements! Not only they provide great visual s muli for the growing brains, the versa lity of the bun ng flags make it possible for you to effortlessly incorporate them into your household décor. Here are five great ways to use bun ng flags as an educa onal tool at home:

Outdoors - across fences and playhouses Across the ceiling of kids bedroom or the playroom On the wall, either at the eye level of the child or higher Frame the window Across the child's bedhead or crib Educa onal displays such as these are known to improve the visual and sequen al memory of pre-schoolers which help them in math and language skills in the subsequent years. Bun ng flags made of fabric or paper are not only good for your child, but good for the environment too! All in all, bun ng flags with le ers and numbers are a great educa onal tool and house décor wrapped in one!

A Story Like Tory

by Dave Edgren Waiting in the Melbourne airport, I met a lovely and afraid. In our words, our actions and our four-year-old girl named Tory. Tory was with her attitudes toward others our children are Mum, Dad and older brother. Tory was talkative, watching us and becoming like us. playful and very happy. We all, like Tory, are beautifully unique. We While her parents didn't treat her any need to tell this to our children and ourselves. Our stories, told both verbally and with our differently than they treated her brother, to everyone who walked by, Tory was the centre of actions, will either empower the next attention. She was anything but 'normal'. Generation or limit them. Don't repeat bad People stared and smiled. Some people stopped news. Tell good stories. Live with joy and passion. and talked – to Tory or about Tory to her Smile. parents. Later, as we boarded the plane, I noticed Tory's family boarding with us – long after the first class, business class, premium economy, etc. They could have boarded when the announcer called: "Any parents with young children or those in need of extra time to board, please come forward first." But they didn't. Tory's parents are telling her a powerful story about herself. They are teaching Tory that she is just like everyone else. Yes, she is a dwarf. Yes, she moves slower and is a lot smaller than everyone else. And yes, she is cute beyond belief. But, Tory's parents treat her like a normal kid. The story we live in front of our children tells them the truth of our lives and theirs. If we show and tell the positive stories, our kids will see the world as a positive place where they can interact and make a difference. If, on the other hand, we constantly comment on the negative state of the world, the problem with the neighbours, the unfair hand we've been dealt – our children will learn to be critical 8

Forte Music Mt Waverley Celebrates one year on...

D

irector of Forte Mt Waverley, Pik Kong is feeling really blessed that she had decided (a li le more than a year ago) to start Forte Mt Waverley. It not only gave her a pla orm to expand her teaching prac ce but it also introduced her to a new and innova ve approach in her pedagogy. The unique Forte curriculum has enabled Pik and her team to teach music more effec vely. Children in par cular find the learning more fun and engaging and look forward to their weekly music lessons. She is absolutely loving her new venture. Although managing on her own and teaching all the Forte Music courses with her team, she feels she can always count on the unfailing support from the Forte Music Schools network: affec onately known as the 'Forte Family'! Pik’s ul mate goal as a music teacher is to try and inspire her students and help them achieve their greatest poten al. It is her hope that she and her team can pass on the joy of music to all her students!

最近《太阳的后裔》这么火,好多女性朋友都在追 这部剧,而且基本不受年龄限制。我很多年不看韩剧 了,但竟然觉得这部剧很好看,微信也被很多公众号和 朋友刷屏,都是宋仲基。不可否认,男女主角的颜值是 吸引大家看这部剧的主要原因。但是剧情和场景的拍摄 也是达到了国内很多偶像剧达不到的高度。 首先,这部剧没有以往偶像剧“你猜我心思,我猜 你心思,猜来猜去拍了几十集”的剧情设置,也没有女 主傻白甜,女二阴险狡诈,男主总是在适当的时候以救 世主形象出现的“霸道总裁爱上我”的梗。男女主角的 爱情干脆利落,爱就说出来,不合适就分手,想念就要 让你知道,想见面马上就见。让人心里拍手称赞,这才 是更接地气的爱情啊。 剧情的设置,包括在中东惊险万分的抢救行动,地 震的救援,单拍都是可以拍电影。我们这个年纪,单纯 看脸的剧已经虏获不了我们的热情了,要有剧情,有饱 满的人物形象,就像去年的《琅琊榜》,不也是因为大 气恢宏的场景和扣人心弦的故事才让我们追得近乎疯狂 吗? 很多人都在讨论宋仲基,的确,像柳时镇这样平时 痞痞的,甜言蜜语撩得你开心,但正经的时候有原则, 有能力,有担当的男人,“一想到被这么优秀的男人亲 过,心里就很激动呢!”乔妹的话就是我们的心声。姜 暮烟也完全有让柳时镇迷恋的资本。她是一个不畏强 权,自立自强,有立场,有爱心,工作繁忙还是能把自 己打扮得舒服得体的女性,不正是我们应该奋斗的目标 吗?而且电影里男女主角地位平等,比肩而战。“你工 作的样子,很性感。”我们坚信,柳时镇这里说的不只 是姜暮烟! 看着这部剧,感受着宋仲基撩妹的脸红心跳,我 想,我们这群人,应该也是借着这部剧在回味自己的少 女心吧!如果另一半埋怨,应该跟他说,你应该庆幸, 整天被孩子和岁月这么摧残,我还有一颗萌动的少女 心,你应该好好呵护它!

这一期,小编给各位爸 爸妈妈准备了一篇韩国 童话故事。通过学习不 同国家的童话故事,总 是能在一些微妙的小地 方发现文化之间的不 同。无论是语序,故事 逻辑,还是主人公描 写,都带着国家和语言 的特色。讲这个故事的 时候,如果觉得“柿子 饼”虽然在韩国很常 见,在澳洲并不常见, 那就换成宝宝喜欢的, 经常能看到的食物吧! 山里头,住着一只大老虎,这天,大老虎肚子饿了,出来找 吃的。它走啊走啊,走到了山脚下的一座小木屋。 从小木屋里,传出了婴儿的哭声。老虎朝窗口瞧了瞧,发现 一位妈妈正在安慰她的宝宝:“宝贝,不要哭了,再哭,小偷会 把你从我这儿偷走的。”但宝宝仍然哭。 这时,那位妈妈朝窗口瞅了一眼,说:“哎呀!那儿来了一只 老虎。孩子,你必须得安静下来!”   可宝宝却哭得更厉害了:“哇呀哇呀哇呀!” 老虎很生气:“啊呜啊呜啊呜!哼,我可是森林大王,所有的 动物都害怕我。这个宝宝不怕我吗?不像话!”   这时,妈妈拿给宝宝一个柿子饼,宝宝咧开嘴笑,不哭了。   老虎吓了一跳,说:“柿子饼,那是什么?肯定是个比我更可 怕的东西!”   老虎越想越怕,越想越怕,索性拔腿就跑,没一会儿功夫, 就跑没影儿啦!

小游戏: 老虎饿了 要吃什么 东西呢?其 它小动物 饿了要吃 什么东西 呢?猜一 猜,然后 把动物和 食物用线 连接起来 吧!已经 给你一些 提示咯!

把动物园挪到你家! 给您的孩子举办一个最狂野的生日聚会!

“狂野行动”关于野生动物的谜之解读: 1.鼠袋鼯是袋类动物,意味着它们前面有个小口袋可以抚育宝宝。 2.银毛狐蝠帮助花朵采粉,想要帮助它们的话可以种些澳洲树。 3.有些蜥蜴是通过舌头感知的,别担心,它们可不是没礼貌! 4.鳄鱼有66个尖锐的牙齿。有的牙齿掉了,就又有新的长出来,周而复始。牙齿仙子好可怜! 5.袋鼠是长足动物,意味着它们的脚很大。要为这些“乡巴佬”找对合适的运动鞋可真难。 6.你可能会以为笑翠鸟是丛林里的小丑。事实上它们的领地意识非常强。它们的笑声实际上是在说“滚出我的领土”! 7.澳洲巨蜥的舌头是叉状的,它们是食肉动物,小心你的手指! 8.壁虎是没有眼皮的。但是,它们不用毛巾来擦拭眼睛。它们用舌头舔净自己的眼睛。好噁心。 9.吸蜜鹦鹉是鹦鹉的一种。它们并不吃花籽,它们用长满毛的舌头啜食花蜜和花粉。 10.猫头鹰眼睛不能转动,所以要转动自己的头270度。 11.青蛙可以像蛇一样蜕皮。但是,它们并不把蜕掉的皮扔垃圾桶里,有时候竟然自己吃掉。好噁心呀。 12.如果你在野外看到蛇,千万别碰它。蛇其实帮我们很多,像吃掉所有的大老鼠小老鼠。
