How do you maintain their interest in C-rods once legos are introduced?

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? Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
