N2 - Research suggests mathematical stories can support mathematical learning. We discuss an unexpected outcome caregivers of reception year learners (Gr R age 5-6yrs), participating in a mathematics story-time program, shared in interviews. The program, implemented with Gr R learners’ caregivers in two South African schools, explained and demonstrated a dialogic approach to reading mathematical stories. While data indicated success in the intended specific mathematics outcomes (e.g. numeral and number word recognition; finding one more/less), we focus here on a broader learning outcome all parents shared. That is, children changed their way of being a learner participant in the family/community.
