How to choose the right kit?

Please refer to the table below outlining each kit and their learning outcomes

• #### How old is your child and what grade are they in at school?

If your child is not enrolled in school yet, our 0 – 10 Number Kit is the correct kit for you.

• #### How is your child achieving in their current grade at school?

• You can refer to their most recent school report
Most schools have an A-E academic achievement section for Mathematics.
A or B – Usually means they are working above stage expectations
C – Usually means they are achieving stage expectations
D or E – Usually means working below or significantly below stage expectations

The Mathematics comment section should provide greater insight into what your child can and can not do mathematically. Try to look for comments explaining how far they can count, what numbers they can read and write, what type of addition and subtraction sums they are completing in class and what strategies they are using.

• You can contact your child’s teacher and ask them specifically what they are learning in class and how your child is going.

• #### Ask your child specific questions to try and determine what they can and can not do.
