Does Anyone Use File Folder Games Anymore?

Hello! I'm new here and I'm a student teacher. I'm looking to make file folder games! I don't care for some of the free sites that offer these for free because they're loaded with pop up ads and my computer freezes up sometimes. Some of their graphics are outdated as well.

Also, if you do use folder games, how do you use them in your class? I would love to hear different ideas. My students love the ones I have made so far.

Thank you

Back in the day I made many file folder games using books from Evan Moore. They may have an online site now. I am still using many of these games in my centers.

I taught ECSE for several years and had a File Folder Center, they are

* great, quiet independent activities to use at naptime with your early risers or if you have non-sleepers in your group.

* useful when working with a student in a one- to- one situation, when doing drills or when targeting an individual studentís specific learning needs.

* helpful in providing students with the opportunity to practice skills previously introduced in a fun way.

* great to use to review concepts with early learners particularly those with special learning needs or Autism.

* good to send home with your students for a Parent/Child Activity.

I also made ones for assessing pre-k skills.

Have fun teaching with File Folder Games!

Cut and paste worksheets make great make and take games. I often use these as centers. Simply add a baggie and the kids have a make and take game to practice at home. This saves me time in preparing folder games and storing games. You can also reprogram the sheets for different skills and grade levels. D

The only draw back is when the pieces mysteriously go missing.

File folders

The reason you donít hear of them any more is because of computers . Donít get me wrong I taught 40 years and was there in the mist of the change . Start by focusing on what skills you want to achieve . For example, matching upper and lower case letters to high frequency words that start with a lower or upper case letter. For Math counting sets to match the number . If itís first or second grade you can do setting and characters to create stories . Rule number 1 introduce folders a little at a time . Nutshell donít throw all the games at them at one time plus rotate activities due to curriculum and new variety. Once you buy the folders it is an inexpensive way to focus and reteach a concept.
