Why File Folder Games for Kindergarten?

  • Students Learn Through Play: Students need a lot of practice with skill development. Kindergarten File Folder Games allow for another way to practice skills through “play.”
  • Fun and Engaging: Students are doing something engaging while they practice their math/ELA skills at the same time. They don’t realize they’re learning!
  • Easy Game Formats: 4 game formats so students can easily transition between games with different skills/content. No learning time is lost explaining the rules to yet another new game!
  • Social Skills Development: Students learn necessary game playing and life skills (how to cooperate, take turns, be a good winner/loser, etc).

“The games are very engaging and pair well with the outcomes I use. I love that all the cards and materials list are marked with the game they go with – there are always one or two cards left on the floor and it’s quick and easy to see which game they go with!”
