I have no idea what took me so long to learn about this idea! Apparently I have been living in a cave somewhere – but now I have been shown the light! Recently I have learned about the different ways file folder games can be used in the classroom! This is something I would really like to bring into my classroom over the summer and into next school year. They don’t take up much room but can be used for so many different curriculum areas.
There’s only one small hitch – the teacher who was presenting this workshop said the only way you can really get a wide range of different file folder games and activities is to buy CD Roms from various websites and she said they can cost upwards of $50! I don’t really have the money to spend at this point in time. So, my question for you teachers out there is: Do you know of any websites where I can get file folder game and activity printables for free? If not, do you know the best website to perhaps purchase a CD Rom from that services the preschool/kindergarten grade level? Or perhaps you have ideas for homemade games? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
