Wecome to Casa 1, my new primary classroom. I will be blogging about various topics and materials in a Montessori classroom.
The Pink Tower has ten pink cubes of different sizes, from 1 cm up to 10 cm in increments of 1 cm. The work is designed to provide the child with a concept of “big” and “small”.
Montessori sensorial materials are used in the Montessori classroom to help a child develop and refine his five senses.
Sensorial materials in a Montessori classroom have what is called “control of error”, meaning while the child is working with the material they have a way of checking their work on their own without seeking out a teacher to have the work checked for them. This promotes independence and problem solving on the part of the child.
The control of error is visual. The child will notice that the cubes are in the wrong order and knows that they should fix them.
