File folder games are great!   They're cheap to make and help add a new dimension to your teaching style.   I used them all throughout kindergarten with Batman and he really enjoyed doing them.   I picked up First Grade File Folder Games at Amazon at a great price.   These booklets are available in different grade levels.

What you'll need:
file folders
file folder games
ziploc bag

Simply purchase some plain manilla folders.   Make sure you have enough for how many games your booklet offers.   Mine has 17 games that offers practice in language arts and math.   On the outside of the folder I glued the directions of the game on the right-hand side.  On the left I stapled a ziploc bag and put in all the game pieces.

On the inside of the folder I glued the actual game.   This particular game is about having kids learn to put the books away on the shelves in alphabetical order.    This just happens to be something that Batman didn't yet know how to do.

Batman did fantastic and his books are all organized.    I'm on the hunt for more file folder games for sure.   These are a super motivator and provide a break when you really need it.
