There's a really awesome teacher store in my city that I just love. The first time I stepped foot in there I was looking for one thing in particular, but I ended up coming out with $70 worth of stuff for our DIY light table. Oops. Two of the things that I ended up buying were a clear geoboard and some translucent counters. We have used them for a variety of activities and open-ended play, but my four year old invented a game that he called, "The Adventures of Tomorrow." It's just an elaborate title for some early math learning and color recognition, including exploring patterns and counting. I finally set up his fine motor math activity again, but this time with the camera handy!

The translucent counters fit in between the pegs of the geoboard perfectly. So I filled the first line with a pattern for the boys to copy.

This activity is also great for fine motor practice. Fitting those counters in between the pegs (and retrieving them afterwards!) requires some great finger dexterity.

My boys also loved to count the translucent counters as they added them, all the way up to 100! After trying a handful of different patterns, the boys tried this activity out on the light table.
