Kia ora everyone,

A school in South Auckland is in the process of planning for home school partnership with a specific focus on Mathematics. Feedback from parents' survey indicated that the parents wanted to know how they can support their children in Mathematics learning. They preferred some practical ideas or tools that could help them.

We are planning to work collaboratively with the parents by providing them with different contexts like shopping /cooking / trips and encouraging them to brainstorm Maths concepts. It will be great to acknowledge what the parents bring to the conversations and then add our ideas.

Have you got any other ideas / tools that have been trialled in your schools?
