Plastic Cuisenaire Rods - 10 Colours (370 pieces)
Description / Plastic Cuisenaire Rods - 10 Colours (370 pieces)
Cuisenaire rods are a tried and tested ‘go-to’ for teaching a wide variety of topics in the maths classroom. The system of rods, ranging in length from 10mm to 100mm, can be stacked, ordered, grouped, placed in patterns, or used as a component of free play. There’s even potential to apply the pieces in the teaching of trickier concepts like fractions, algebra, arithmetic, probability, and place value.
Part of what makes this resource so appealing is the variety of colours the pieces are supplied in. These follow the standard Cuisenaire format of orange, blue, brown, black, dark green, yellow, pink, light green, red, and white.
A practical classroom resource
All are made from a durable, smooth plastic. Plastic is easy-to-clean, which is useful in an environment where lots of students may use the same resource. All the pieces fit neatly into a clip lid, transparent plastic storage box, for easy storage.
Fine motor skills
An added bonus of working with small tactile manipulatives is the development of fine motor skills, like dexterity and hand-eye coordination.
This set of 370 pieces is enough to allow for collaborative class activities. Children will benefit from working with others; problem-solving and communicating using descriptive language.
