Cuisenaire Rods

     We have been working with Cuisenaire Rods as concrete manipulatives to solidify knowledge of math facts. We started by reviewing the commutative property of addition: 5+3 = 3+5. Note that students also wrote the equations using abbreviations for the colors: y+g=g+y. Years from now, when they start algebra, using letters to represent numbers won't seem so strange to them!
