This teacher resource describes a New South Wales strategy to support early years teachers in improving numeracy outcomes for Foundation to year 2 students likely to perform at or below the national minimum standard in numeracy in year 3. The intervention program involved professional learning for Targeted Early Numeracy (TEN) facilitators, enabling them to provide in-class support to the participating early years teachers. The teaching strategies included small group instruction, frequent short numeracy sessions and targeted activities, with regular monitoring of student progress. The resource discusses the positive outcomes and the lessons learned, and provides references and links to relevant readings.
