This Toddler 1 student practiced an extension of
the classic Montessori materials, the Brown Stair and Pink Tower. This exercise requires twenty careful trips
back and forth to bring the blocks one by one to a work mat. This part of the process alone is a wonderful
opportunity for working the body as well as the mind! Then, the materials are placed in order from
thickest/largest to thinnest/smallest.
This helps to develop awareness of patterns and discrimination by size
using both the visual and tactile senses.
