Geoboards teach recognition of geometric shapes, which is a pre-reading and pre-writing skill, as well as improve hand-eye coordination, develop the pincer grip and enhance the muscle control necessary for any pencil work. Guidecraft’s Geoboards do all that and more. The 20 pattern cards that slide easily onto the pegs introduce your preschooler to color and pattern recognition. His dexterity will improve as he attaches the colorful rubber bands, while both following patterns and creating his own designs. The hands-on nature of this math manipulative, and the coordinated effort to place the rubber bands will increase your child's ability to concentrate. Each double-sided Geoboard features a pegged circle on one side and a square grid on the other side, and has rubberized corners for enhanced durability, stability, and sound deadening. Guidecraft Geoboards come with four two-sided boards, four sets of multi-colored rubber bands, and 20 pattern cards featuring unique geometric images.
Initially, we encourage you to let your child have adequate time to explore the Geoboard, practicing adding and removing the rubber bands. Remember, Geoboards can also be used imaginatively, so encourage your preschooler to make a house, a spoon, or a rocket with his rubber bands.
A Geoboard is more than a math manipulative used to support early geometric and measurement concepts in a concrete method. Older children can use the circle side of the Geoboard to practice their analog clock skills. Make it easy by using two different colored bands for the big and small hands.
In addition, our PreK Handbook includes exclusive examples of how to make letters and numbers with the Geoboards and rubber bands.
Dimensions: 20cm x 20cm square boards with over molded corner feet

I love this for the fine motor play and it has helped fill time on a bad weather day but it isn't something my kids will pull out on their own.
My daughter is an advanced learner, so she got really board with this one early on. It didn't seem to get much harder from the first card to the last either. It would work great for any kids need to work on fine motor skills, but if your kid is board with the first one, it will probably stay that way all the way to the last.
I can see the possibilities with this, but my son (not quite 4) has zero interest. I’m going to hold onto it for awhile longer to see if we can get any use out of it when he’s a little older.
This wasn’t anything special for us. It’s a fun idea but the kids haven’t really learned anything from it. It’s just a fun activity to do on occasion. I took it out of their school curriculum because they just aren’t too excited about it. If I pull it out they do it but it’s never something they ask to do.
All of my children ages 3 to 9 like to have their turn with this. It is nice to have 4 boards to come with it!
