    I started a file folder thread a few weeks ago ( http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/showthread.php?t=97632 )and some people listed a few websites. I have found some free games to download and all you have to do is print them and cut them out and glue to the file folders. I have made 3 this week and they took no time at all. There's also one site where you can buy a CD with file folder games and I don't think it is too expensive.

    1. Ask parents to make them. I used Work Jobs for my class, and had parents help me. I even had my own children help me.

    2. Ask Jem at Sprout if she has any.

    3. Buy some educational games that might work in the same manner.

    Check out http://www.fcrr.org/forTeachers.htm

    Not file folder games per se, but can be used as such. I just keep them in Ziploc bags and the kids lay the pieces out on the tables to manipulate.

    Also, in the past I have just printed letters from the computer and cut pictures (or had the kids cut pictures) from magazines to glue to the folders-matching beginning or ending sounds. Voila!

    I use file folder games for something I call ticket centers. Four of the same game and six different games total. Last year my para would color and cut out and make these file folder games (just on regular construction paper) however, it was taking too long and just not worth the time and effort so now I take worksheets from teachers helper magazine or any cut and paste activity copy it onto four different colored pieces of paper and wala instant ticket center/file folder game! Still covers the same skills etc as time consuming file folder games but not nearly the effort. Plus the kids don't care what it looks like as long as they can get it done!

    I bought mine on sale at www.themailbox.com . I had gift certificates from them since they had accepted some of my lesson ideas for publication.

    A teacher down the hall bought twenty or so at a thrift store. A teacher had retired and gave all her supplies to them. She paid fifty cents a game.

    Again, not folder games, but some fun activites. There are a number of early primary games (as well as upper grades) math games at the Positive Engagement Project. Look at Acing Math one deck at a time. It is absolutely free, so give them a search.
