Exploring Numbers Through Cuisenaire Rods This is the second book in the series ‘Help your child master numeracy’ written by dyscalculia expert Ronit Bird. This series provides parents with practical ideas for activities and games designed to help their child develop a better feel for numbers.

The idea that drives this book is that we should be teaching numeracy for understanding, in a hands-on and multi-sensory way, and not through rote-learning or memorised tricks and procedures. Working with Cuisenaire rods is an ideal way to explore numbers and the relationships between numbers in a way that enables children to discover facts for themselves and develop true conceptual understanding.

Embedded throughout the book are a total of 30 demonstration videos with a total running time of 2 hours. These videos show you exactly what to do and what to say as you work through the games and activities with your child.

    Cuisenaire Rods are arguably the greatest maths teaching tool ever invented. This book is a must if you want to teach primary school mathematics at its best. Any teacher would be incomplete unless they have read this. The videos are excellent with great activities for the student to grasp a concept. Ronit has continued the legacy....Cuisenaire, Gattegno, Bird.

    What a wonderful resource for any adult working with a child who is struggling with number! Using a multi-sensory approach, the book teaches first the adult, with clear explanations and videos, then the child, who uses Cuisenaire Rods to practise the number operation, watching the video and listening to guidance from the adult.

    "A fantastic, engaging and accessible approach to teaching maths for all children, dyscalculic or not. Useful for home and school with a clear development of ideas and excellent video lessons. I have recommended this book already to the parents and staff I work with as a SENCo in a UK primary school."

    This great ibook is hard to fault. Like the Cuisenaire Rods themselves it is bright, appealing and easy to use. As a teacher and a parent I can see how much any child (not just a dyscalculic child) would love learning about numbers using the games and learning activities, which are described and illustrated so well through clearly written chapters and lovely little videos. Anyone wishing to help young children gain a good understanding of numbers would find this an invaluable source of information and ideas.
