The Pink Tower is an essential piece of Montessori material in a Primary Classroom. I would like to share with you an informative video which details the critical significance of this apparatus which is part of the Sensorial sequence in the classroom.
I have been presenting this material to many of the newest members of the classroom during these initial days of school. Many of the children who were part of the class last year are exploring the material in other ways, as described in the video. The last part of this post from last year showcases some extension work and variations with the Pink Tower and Brown Stair - another Sensorial apparatus.
As a Montessori educator, it brings me much joy to see the Pink Tower in active use each day! What a pleasure it is to watch as an eager three year old purposefully unroll a mat, carefully place each cube onto it, thoughtfully construct a tower, and admire his work... It may appear to be a simple tower of pink cubes, but as you now know, it is so much more!
