Red Rods Newsletter

The red rods or long stair is one of the last sensorial lessons completed before introducing the number rods. The length of the rods emphasizes the first rod's size.  The smallest rod is the length of the difference in size between each step in the stair. This helps with the concrete concept of counting. The first rod is the first placement, the second rod is the second placement, and so on. It is like counting without the symbols.
