Sweet & Simple Saturday Post #1

Welcome to the FIRST ever Sweet & Simple Saturday post!! Thanks for stopping by!

This Saturday's freebie is a template to help you create the following geoboard manipulative.

As stated in the photo, these geoboards are the PERFECT addition to your interactive math journals or geometry unit, or can be made just for fun! This is a manipulative students will make and take ownership of AND is one that can be sent home! All you need is the template, paper, card stock, brads, a rubber band, and a little bit of patience. The finished geoboard can be stored in a pocket or envelope and then placed in a math journal or notebook.

1. Glue the grid template to a piece of colored paper that is slightly larger than the grid.

2. Push the brads through the grid at each intersection. In the template, I have included a thick border around the grid so you are able to place more brads than I did on the sample geoboard. Woohoo!

3. Glue the grid to a larger piece of paper. (You may want to tape the edges for an additional reinforcement.) Allow time for the glue to dry before using.

4. Enjoy!
