“On a sunny day my little brother and I bought two cold drinks…”

Here is one way of telling a story…

We know that Cuisenaire rods have different colours, but did you know they can help tell a story?

“We both found a largetree and decided to sit under it drinking our

cold drinks”

“We both spent the day enjoying our drink under the shade of the

tree. The end”

Telling stories using Cuisenaire rods can be a great way to learn new words

and even learn a new language

Others may want to learn because language is important to their own culture

and identity

People may want to learn a new language because they are interested in a

specific culture

Some of the languages taught using Cuisenaire rods include…

Both children and adults may learn a new language for different reasons…

Te reo Maori

Hindi

Pacific Island languages

Japanese

English

And many other different

languages

Colour can

• help us think about certain things

• because of their colour

• help us tell a story to someone

• help us learn new words

• help a person learn a language because it maybe important to their identity or culture
