Math in the Mail Pre-Kit Survey
Before you begin using the Math in the Mail kit materials, please answer the questions below.

When answering, think about your child’s normal behavior. Please note that it's okay that not all the questions are answered with a yes. All children develop at different rates.

Your answers will help determine which skills the Math in the Mail kits should focus on and which materials should be included in the kits.

Thank you for helping to make Math in the Mail the best resource for improving preschool math skills!
