Geoboard Patterns and Mats – Geoboard Activity for Fine Motor Skills
This Geoboard Patterns and Mats pack contains hundreds of pages of different themed geoboard mats that your children will love to recreate on their geoboards. With two different degrees of difficulty, these activities can be enjoyed multiple times and in a variety of ways.
This geoboard activity is good for early learners to gain confidence as well as kindergarten-aged to focus in on skills, too.
Materials Required for this Geoboard Activity:
- White paper
- Dry erase markers
- Geoboard and bands. I used these Geoboards but… you need to use really small rubber bands or double tie them. I suggest you get this large 11×11 geoboard mat. It is easier for younger children. The one I use included 5 pins by 5 pins, but it was a little challenging based on the size of the bands we had. The larger one has 11 pins but works better overall for little hands. This one is harder to find but it’s also available here.

How to Use Geobard Patterns and Mats
As you can see, using these geoboard mats can vary. There are spaces for children to make the letters, make the words, and then make the picture of what the word is as well.
There is even a section for your child to count up the bands and write down how many they used during this fun geoboard activity.
In one simple geoboard pattern, your child will be working on upper and lower case letters, creativity in completing a picture, counting, and recognition. Not to mention using their hands and minds, too!
Set two contains a more difficult geoboard, as well as all the other activities: tracing practice, letter recognition, and counting practice. Set three is set two, but in black and white for those who wish to save on ink.
