    Do you find that your kids’ interest in c-rods wanes in favor of legos? How do you maintain their interest in C-rods once legos are introduced?



    My kids have always loved Lego and play with them much more than C-rods, but they will all play with c-rods at times as well.

    Sometimes I get them out for the older two when they’re doing their maths lessons (they’re not using Gattegno as their main maths) if there’s a concept I want to demonstrate.

    My youngest I’m doing the Gattegno method with so we get out the c-rods and I do a lesson with him. I don’t ask whether he’d rather be using Lego, we just do the activity.

    Sometimes I sit them all down with the rods for a group activity and they work together on it. Again, Lego at that time isn’t an option.

    Occasionally I use Lego bricks for our maths lesson.

    Does that answer your question?
