File Folder Games – Fun matching games that can be mounted in individual file folders for student use.

Challenge your students with these varied matching games. They’ll develop different skills as they are asked to match shapes, colors, words, opposites, patterns, faces, associated objects, names, pictures, and mathematical formulas. Each game set can be placed in folders or envelopes for individual use at a table or work station, or mounted on a bulletin board for team play. We recommend that each piece be laminated so they will last longer.

Each game set comes complete with instructions for the students and all pages of matching cards, so be sure to print all of them.
