I’m learning about teaching maths through Cuisenaire Rods. I learn by doing and publishing, I find it helps my thought processes. Expect a series on this!
It doesn’t get easier than this. Get a set of Cuisenaire rods out and start playing with them. If the kids don’t play, then start creating something yourself and watch how their eyes look over your shoulders with eagerness to get involved. This activity is about exploring, being creative and becoming familiar with the rods. What kind of things can you do?
Here are some ideas to get you started.
