Ds#2 (5yrs) just started school this year and his teacher has said today in a meeting that in maths he is at a year 3 level.
Kind of insane! He has additional needs, but numbers obviously make sense to him. He can not explain to us how he knows what he knows, the teacher said in her 30 yrs of teaching she hasnt come across a kindy student who doesnt even need to think about the answer before they say it, doesnt have to use fingers or anything etc.
We've not done any maths at home except counting.. (He can count to 1000+) so my question is, what can i do to help him progress? I dont want him to just sit easy at this level while his peers are learning and would like to do some stuff at home to help him reach his full potential.
Should i just get those maths activity books in higher levels?
