    Does anyone have any "younger kids" file folder games. I have a few, but would like a few more. I am also looking for more center ideas for (4year olds). TIA ;)

    I've used some Kindergarten File Folder resource books (lots of copying and coloring while my own boys were at sports practices). Ask teachers that you know to see if they have a book to borrow. I've also used... http://www.childcareland.com/free.html and printed in color.

    You might google, free file folder games, to see what you get. That's how I found childcareland.

    Thanks for that site reference! :woot: I am addicted to making file folder games, but I pull most of them out of my little 'ol head! (I remeber a ton from college classes, and I just reproduce them with clipart, coloring books, and the like.) I love coloring, and so this is one of my favorite activities. ;)

    Each Mailbox Magazine has a file folder game in the center. No coloring, limited cutting and the paper is thick enough you don't really have to laminate (I still do).

    It is designed for grades 5/6 but all the activities can be adapted for other grades. There are tons of ideas for file folder games (though they aren't labeled as such) and portable centers. I just browsed through the spelling activities and games and they are great. Lots of things you can copy to Word and print out.

    There are tons of math games to print, put some into protective plastic sleeves, and use for all grade levels and math standards. Yes, you do have to search through files called "Week by Week Essentials", but there is a different game for every week of the school year. The games cover skills that are taught (or reinforced) at each grade level K-6, so you could use some for below level reinforcement or other higher level ones for enrichment if you needed or wanted to. They are easy to prepare, and the kids like them. I used them in conjunction with the Take It To Your Seat centers. I hope you find something you can use here!

    centers/math games using playing cards. I have used them all year - little prep and the kids love them!

    I haven't used these in several years so some may not be active anymore.
