Layers and Animals of the Rainforest

We had a “challenge” in my group for the rainforest theme.  I created this file folder game (ffg) for my members.  Players will label the 4 layers of the rainforest.  They will also sort animals into the 4 layers where they spend most of their time.  I wasn’t able to create a worksheet to accompany the game, but an answer key for the ffg is provided.

Here’s a thumbnail view of parts of the game….

Around the Pirate Ship

I have another pirate game for you, mateys!!

This one is Around the Pirate Ship and it’s a file folder game (ffg) for adding or subtracting to 10.  Players start on the space and then add or subtract to get the sum to finish the problem.  To do so, they’ll place an addition or subtraction sign in the black spot on the game board.  1 or more players can play and there’s optional treasure chest tokens to keep track of how many signs were placed correctly.

Dino-Mite

I’m currently on Spring Break with my daughter and enjoying a little down time. My promise to her was that I wouldn’t be online during this time so that we can do whatever we want on a whim and just have a real break!!

I did want to be able to share this week though, so I’ve scheduled a couple blog posts so that you all can download some goodies while I’m off having a good time!! That said, I had a huge issue trying to upload my files to 4Shared, so if you go to download them, they may….or may not be there. If they’re not, please leave me a comment and when I’m online at the end of Spring Break, I’ll see if I can fix any of the errors.

The dinosaur lover in your class or at home should love these!!  I have Dino-Mite Counting, which has the player placing the numeral on the mat.  They will then place that many dino tokens on the mat.  Please note, there is a spelling error in the directions.  It says numBeral instead of numeral.  I don’t have the font on this computer, so I couldn’t fix it and I don’t have the time or access to do it right now.  Please just mark it out or when I return, I’ll correct it right away.

There’s also Dino-Mite Numbers, where the player places the numeral and the number word on the mat.  This strictly works on the skill of being able to match and correspond them correctly.  Both mats are for 0 to 25.

This is an item that I was asked to share before the end of my Seuss-icle week was over.  It’s a ffg (file folder game) called There’s a Wocket in My Pocket Color Match Pockets.  You can cut slits in the top of the pockets to insert the color word Wockets that match the color of the pockets.  Or, you can simply just play to match them up.  There’s 2 versions….one is very colorful and will take lots of ink and the other is low ink.  They’re the same, just depends on how much ink you want to use!!

President’s Day Money Game

This is a ffg (file folder game) that I made prior to the weekend and wanted to get posted, but I just ran out of time.  Hopefully, you’ll still have it on time to use in your classes, save until next year…..or just use it all year long!!

The ffg is Making Money with Washington and Lincoln.  Players roll the die and move that number of spaces around the board.  Landing on a marked space, they must draw a card and with their money, they must make that amount.  All money amounts are using the 2 coins and 2 bills that George Washington and Abraham Lincoln are on.  I’ve created several cards with the money amounts, as well as providing the die, money, optional card backs, and complete game.  All you’ll need are player tokens!!

President’s Day

I thought that I’d get this one out early so that there’d be plenty of time to use it!!  Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to create anything new for Valentine’s Day which is tomorrow.  That’ll have to be my goal for next year!!

This is President’s Day Sort and it includes the ffg (file folder game) and a worksheet to complete after the game is played.  Actually, I think I geared the worksheet to an older age group than the ffg, but it’d still be a great review.  Also, some of the images, little ones might not recognize.  You can just use the parts that work for you though!!

There are 12 images to sort for each President by placing the image on either the George Washington or Abraham Lincoln mat.  As it’s played, one might notice many similarites between the 2 presidents.  There’s also a worksheet that uses the sorting mat for answers, but also relies on how much the player knows about each of the presidents.  The last one is an essay to tell about similarities or differences between Washington and Lincoln or just to tell what the player knows about them.  The worksheet also has some true/false, short answer and knowledge.  I did include an answer key for the worksheet as well!!

What a week!!  It was a little crazy….good, but crazy and it’s about to get even more so.  Kiddos birthday is this week and her party is next weekend.  I got so wrapped up in everything this week that I totally forgot to post anything!!  HAHA  Now the question is…what to share!?!?

I think that since today was the first day of autumn, I’m going to take you on a Fall Hay Ride.  This is a blank or generic file folder game (ffg).  You can simply use it as a board game, or you can make your own skill to play the game.  It’s a very basic game, so you can create your own rules, skills, or whatever you need to play a fun game!!

Pumpkin Patch Alphabet Kids – Upper Case

My family and I had a movie marathon today.  In between times, I created this new game.  It’s Pumpkin Patch Alphabet Kids and works on the skill of matching lower case letter to the uppper case letter.

I didn’t place the upper case letters in alphabetical order on the game board because I know how well kids are at memorizing them!!  The player will place a lower case pumpkin letter token on the upper case letter pumpkin patch kid.  This should make for a fun autumn game and keep the kids busy for awhile!!

Here’s a collage of the some of the parts of this game…..

If you’re interested Pumpkin Patch Alphabet Kids, please just…..
