Dear Parent

Tooth Faries by Bellina and Nhyira is thoughtful (“toothful”). They believe the first thing anyone will spot on a person should they have a conversation is the teeth. They discovered a number of things about the tooth through the stages. According to mouth healthy.com, some fascinating facts about the tooth learnt were,

  • Around 5,000 B.C, The Egyptians used crushed eggshells to polish their teeth.
  • Our teeth reveal how old we are, what we eat and drink and even where we lived on earth.
  • No two teeth are exactly the same shape and size. Every tooth in the mouth is unique and varies from person to person, so our smile is really a true mark of our individuality.
  • In 1950, the average gift from the “tooth fairy” was just 25 cents. It is about $2 today.
  • How out teeth will look is already imbedded in our gums at birth, just waiting to push out to form

The group shared these fun facts with the children at Save Them Young Orphanage, and showed a video on how to brush the teeth. Furthermore, the group contributed to the  purchase of a box of tooth paste and toothbrushes and donated it to the children.

Reflection

Throughout this Community Project, we have had a lot of fun. This is because we had the opportunity to help less privileged people by being creative and innovative in our own way. We have been thinkers throughout this Community Project. This is as a result of us finding solutions to problems that we noticed in a community.

We have been Open-minded by thinking outside the box and by taking everybody’s ideas into consideration. We looked at problems from different viewpoints, and this caused us to be more open to ideas. We learnt how to be communicators by being better with people. This was done when we shared ideas between each other and our supervisor. We also learnt this skill by communicating with the children and patrons of the Save them Young Community, when we had to ask them various questions.   In our Community Project we exhibited good self-management skills, by knowing when to meet our supervisor and get other works completed at the same time. Under self-management skills we also demonstrated the cluster organization, where we were able to organize our planning steps and organize a time to meet with our supervisor. Nhyira  & Bellina
