Visually appealing and engaging, the Pink Tower is a foundational material from the Sensorial Area of the Montessori classroom. Often called the ‘symbol of Montessori’, it is a welcoming sign in any Montessori environment and a favourite with educators globally.
You could look at the Pink Tower and say ‘it’s just a stack of blocks’, but it’s actually so much more than that. Indirectly the Pink Tower prepares the child for Language and Maths. It prepares the hand for writing, as children need to use the tree finger grip to carry the cubes. It also encourages the child to use descriptive language in the environment.
The Pink Tower also prepares the mathematical mind. It indirectly introduces the Decimal System, as the child works with 10 cubes which represent the numbers 1-10. It also introduces Geometry, as the child explores the different cubes and their dimensions.
