How I Use It
At first, I let the students play with the app without instruction. Next I ask them to make certain shapes. Then I challenge them to make something using 2 shapes, etc. Finally, I let them explore it on their own again.
I like it because I don't have to do the talk on safety with rubber-bands. I also don't have to worry about missing pieces. It's also easier for Kindergartners to use than the real geoboards. It can be scaffolded to use with lower students as well as expanded for use with higher level students.
