File Folder Games

Updated on August 29, 2017

File folder games are a great way for students to practice school subjects and still have fun. I got interested in file folder games because my little guy is struggling in school. He is a smart little guy, but he has some learning disabilities such as dysgraphia which makes it hard to for him to do handwriting. I wanted to find some games that he could do and still learn at. These pages that I have made on file folder games are a result of my search. I am sharing what I have found and will add to them as I find more. For now, you can find file folder games on different subjects by clicking on the links.

File Folder Tutorial

In this video, a mother shows how she made a file folder game for her toddler. While this video is geared toward making them for little ones, the same concept can be used for older children too. She used a lot of imagination in making the file folder game and it is a great example of how you can make them.

Please Give Your Opinion!

Do you think that file folder games are a great way to learn?

File folder games are especially good for younger children and children with special needs. Obviously any child could benefit from playing learning games, but they are especially helpful with these two groups of children. Younger children usually can not read or write, but they can do activities such as matching and other games. Learning games give them the opportunity to learn without frustrating them with skills they are not capable of yet. Special needs children many times learn by doing. Many have trouble sitting still and some have trouble learning how to read or write. Some may be able to read and write, but it may be more difficult for them to do so. Games can reach special needs children on their level. Another issue I have noticed with special needs children is their learning ability and skill can be all over the place. Some are able to read very well, but due to fine motor delays, they have trouble writing. That is where learning games, like file folder games come in. The child can progress where they are comfortable without having to be held back by their disability. If you have had trouble teaching a special needs child, it is at least worth a try to see if a learning game would help. Obviously, the level of response will be based on the individual child. Some will respond more positively than others.
