pink tower works, red monkeys, and green lizards

The Pink Tower work is a classic Montessori work.  The student places each pink block carefully on the appropriately sized square.  The work emphasizes careful handling of the objects, using two hands whenever possible.  It also emphasizes large to small, ending with a teeny-tiny baby square.  Keeping track of that teeny-tiny baby square is taken very seriously by the students; it has yet to be lost in recent history!
