What does our OT says:

The Geoboard is a versatile tool in every OT's toolbox and here is why:

  • Fine Motor Skills:Ā Geoboards provide an excellent opportunity for fine motor practice. Children manipulate elastic bands by stretching and placing them around pegs on the board. This will strengthens hand muscles, improves finger dexterity and enhances precision in finger movements. This is important aspects to improve handwriting
  • Visual Motor Integration:Ā When children create shapes or patterns on the geoboard using elastic bands, they engage in visual-motor integration. This skill involves coordinating visual information (what they see) with motor actions (what they do). This is a crucial skill to develop and improve copying.Ā 

  • Spatial Awareness:Ā Geoboards encourage spatial exploration. Children learn about symmetry, area, and perimeter as they create geometric shapes (such as squares, triangles, and rectangles) on the board.

  • Math Concepts:Ā Geoboards introduce basic geometry concepts. Children explore shape attributes, angles, and spatial arrangements.Ā 

  • Creativity and Problem-Solving:Ā Geoboards allow open-ended exploration. Children can design their own patterns, replicate existing shapes, or create abstract designs. This foster creativity and critical thinking.Ā 

  • Hand-Eye Coordination:Ā Placing elastic bands accurately on the pegs requires precise hand-eye coordination.Ā 

AnĀ added bonusĀ to this set is theĀ threading bear, a charming wooden bear-shaped piece equipped with laces for threading. This delightful activity is perfect for keeping little ones engaged during travel or quiet moments. Children can practice their fine motor skills while threading the laces through the bearā€™s holes, creating patterns and designs.Ā
