File Folder Games

I don't remember playing any file folder games when I was little, and after seeing all the fun ones available online, I sure wish I had! But, now that I'm a homeschoolin' mama, I have the perfect excuse to get my game on! Here are some of the ones we're getting ready for Mary; she'll start the K4 class next month:





I just had to share these little (and I mean teensy, weensy!) hermit crabs with you! The hubs has spent SO much time with these hermits; check out how closely he cut them out - look at those legs! I am not allowed to cut out the game pieces because I "don't do it right," which means I cut a big circle around the things. But, they do look a lot better than I would have done them, so I'm sending out a special thanks to my man!

We found our games at FileFolderFun.com, but I'm sure there are other sites with games as well. I know that in these early years I really need to focus on helping Mary ENJOY school and learning, so hopefully these games will help. Speaking of having fun while you learn, I just started a really great book about the subject, called Playful Learning. I'm not finished yet, but so far I'm VERY inspired!

  1. It looks like it did at your house, minus the fancy font. Now I want to figure out how we can both get our fonts?! I'm super excited that you've shared this with me!

    1. Thanks for checking out the site, Jennifer! I don't know what to do about the fonts. Mine looks correct at Grandmother's house, but I guess it just depends if the computer already has that particular font installed. Oh well... See you tomorrow at the Back to School party!

  3. Rhonda Lin, thanks for the encouraging words! I'm working on putting together my Cycle 4 post. Hopefully it'll be up in the next few days (fingers crossed!). :)
