Pink Tower Lesson

The Pink Tower has a number of objectives. It consists of a 10 wooden cubes varying in size from one centimeter cube. Today we did a mat presentation of the Pink Tower, which is ideally used for children from the age of 3years. The group today was quite a bit younger, but it coincided with our lesson for the day, and the children thoroughly enjoyed it. I firstly did the presentation of how to carry and hold the cubes, and how to build the tower. The children then took turns building it themselves, and learnt how to pack it back in its place. The aim of the pink tower is for the refinement of visual-motor skills as well as voluntary motor movement, and co-ordination and to strengthen hands for writing. It also aims and developing math appropriate language and discrimination of sizes from small to big.
