File folder games are a fun way to help children learn. This page has a lot of resources for printable file folder games. Many of these are free on the internet and made by other teachers who freely share them with the rest of us. These free printable file folder games are easy to print out and easy to assemble. Printable file folder games are wonderful for children that need extra practice, special needs children, and children who want an extra edge on learning. They work great in classrooms, homeschools, preschools and even in the home. I became interested in file folder games when my little guy was diagnosed with dysgraphia, which causes handwriting to be a challenge for him. He also suffers from ADHD so sitting still is also a challenge. You can check out the printable file folder games below! To see more file folder games, check out this page: File Folder Games.

Here are some great books to use if you want ready made file folder games or if you want more ideas on making your own.

Ways to Make Your File Folder Games Great!

There are some ways to make your file folder games excellent. First off, using colored folders make the games really appealing to youngsters. You could use different colors for different subjects or you could use them with certain themes. For example Christmas themed games could be red or green, Easter themed or spring themed could be pastel, ect. You can color the pictures if the printouts are in black and white. This will make the games stand out more to kiddos. You can also dig into your craft supplies and use things like stickers and die cuts to decorate the folders. Last but not least, laminate the file folder games and their pieces when you are done putting them together. This will help them last for much longer. This is especially important if used in a school. If they are in a homeschool and they are going to have limited use, you can skip this step if you want, but only if you don't plan to use them for very long.

      Cool idea, I Pinned it; I've been building an Educational Pinboard, we have some serious issues with the DoE in the Bronx where I reside. I hope to inspire people to do some home-schooling as a compliment to their children's education.
