1. THE PRE-SCHOOL OR 'KINDERGARTEN' HOME PACK, $39. 
If keen to interest your child in maths and if you are able to spend a little time playing games with them, this pack may be for you. It includes a Guide & Activity book, laminated numbers (to cut out and use) and two Number Sticks. It provides lots of maths games and activities that children will enjoy AND that will help them make a good confident start in maths when they begin school.

2. EARLY NUMERACY PACK, $55.
This is to support children who have just started school or who are struggling or have fallen behind. It aims to help build a solid basic Number foundation. It includes 2 Number Sticks, an Early Numeracy guide book and ‘Activities to 10’, a 66-page book with maths games and activities galore. This is a fantastic hands-on and visual way for children to get into almost all areas of early maths and obtain great results.

3. THE NUMBER STICK 'TABLES' PACK, $55.
This is a more specialized pack. It is for children who are starting into multiplication facts at school and could do with a little help. It may also well suit some who have fallen behind and who may benefit from a different approach. It includes a general Number Stick Guide’ and 3 activity books: Build Tables, Swingo Bingo, and First Tables. Children first build a table (to ensure understanding), then play 'the game' for that table (to start getting it into memory), then do pencil and paper activities which work on accuracy and then on speed. Two 2 Number Sticks are included.

4.’KIWI MATHS’ BASIC FACT PACKS, $21.
Many children these days are weak in their knowledge of ‘tables’ or basic facts. To help your child become quick and accurate with them we offer ‘Kiwi Maths’ workbooks which are provenly effective. Choose between the two-workbook packs for multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. Generally it is best to work on multiplication and division at the same time. Optionally - in the case of addition and subtraction, some children may be helped by having Number Sticks at hand, but generally they are not used.
