I was recently working with a teacher who introduced me to something called file folder games. They were used in a station activity and I really liked them. They are easy to create and many are pre created online for you to print and put together. All you need is a folder and some place to laminate the materials. In searching the web, I discovered many of the games are targeted for younger learners (pre k /k) but after seeing so many examples I could easily create my own.
In this post I wanted to include some links to the file folder sites and center ideas. Would you use some of these ideas in your room? What games or stations do you use in class?
Share and Grow,
-This site had some good ideas. However, the games labeled grade 2 seemed a bit young so use a teacher eye!
-I liked that this page gave me some ideas for science and social studies folders. I probably would not use the games for these subjects from this site. However it gave me some good ideas about how to make games similar for my room.
-This blog is wonderful! Shout out to ILovetoTeach! The teacher behind this blog shares many of her stations and prompting ideas. They are beautifully created and online for you to borrow.
