Cuisenaire Fun and a Freebie Too!

I bought a starter set of Cuisenaire Rods a couple of weeks ago. They were used but in great condition. I pulled them out this week, and they're a real hit. I downloaded this free booklet of games and cards to use with the rods. (You'll need the cards to play some of the games.) We tried a couple of the activities today, and they really interested Superman. There are so many concepts that can be learned with this manipulative - addition, subtraction, measurement, fractions, spatial reasoning, and on and on with the possibilities! Can't wait to use these more over the summer.


  1. Hi Shannon!
    Thanks for visiting my blog. You're family is beautiful. Thanks for posting the Cuisenaire rod freebies. I am going to be ordering the rods for my boys soon.
    I'll answer any questions you havea about saving money. I shop at CVS and participate in their extra care bucks progam. What would you like to know? :)

  2. Free stuff how cool! These are a hit at our house too and I plan to get another set of rods next order. There just aren't enough.

    Have fun!
