Glasgow Counts Parent Guides

Below you will find a leaflet designed to support parents with the CPA Approach (concrete-pictorial-abstract), it also contains an introduction to Bar Modelling and information on Mathematical vocabulary. The Early, First and Second Level leaflets provide lots of useful visual examples to support parents with a wide variety of Maths and Numeracy concepts. These can be used in conjunction with the Home Learning Walls to provide support with layout and presentation that the children are familiar with.
