Do you use geoboards? I LOVE them and so do the kids!

We are learning about shapes right now and so I decided this was the best time to introduce the geoboards so that they can be an independent center soon.

I always start by letting the kids explore.

Then I have them make basic shapes. As they get better my directions become more exact. For example, "make a small red rectangle" rather than just "rectangle."

The next lesson I pull out these geoboard number cards I have... I have no idea where I bought them! Does anyone recognize these?

Later in the year I will add a recording sheet!
This is also a fun site where students can create on a virtual geoboard:

Geoboards help students learn about shapes, practice following directions and it helps to build fine motor skills!
