Parents Count Too Pamphlets
Effective partnerships in numeracy education develop from good communication. A range of pamphlets has been developed outlining activities that can be used at home to support mathematics learning at school. These pamphlets on "Helping your child with..." are available in files that can be downloaded in 22 community languages. As well as English, the languages available are Arabic, Bosnian, Chinese, Croatian, Farsi, Indonesian, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Lao, Macedonian, Portuguese, Punjabi, Russian, Samoan, Serbian, Somali, Spanish, Thai, Tongan, Turkish and Vietnamese.
This series of pamphlets provides practical ideas to support children's mathematical thinking. The pamphlets provide guidance for lower primary students. While the ideas presented in the pamphlets are in-line with the curriculum being taught in primary schools, they are also based around everyday events such as cooking, gardening or reading with your child or even on family outings, such as on a visit to the beach.
