Helping your child with literacy and numeracy at home

front cover of literacy booklet

A new resource has been created for parents and carers of children in the early years of school. 


The Helping your child with literacy and numeracy at home booklet (pdf 4.35MB) is full of activities and ideas to help parents and carers support their child and help develop early literacy and numeracy skills. They connect skills taught in the classroom with real life activities and resources found at home. 


In the middle of the booklet there is a ten frame (pdf 1.66MB) that parents can pull out. Ten frames support the development of number sense. Parents can use the ten frame and household objects, such as coins or beans, to show numbers less than or equal to ten, or to show combinations of numbers that add to ten.
