As you may have figured out, I LOVE file folder games. I think it is great that they are self-contained, you can store all the pieces together, and they are perfect for independent work systems because with Velcro, they stay together so you can check them when it’s finished. However, the one snag I always ran into was how to keep the pieces with the file folder. I tried a ziplock bag velcroed to the back, but it always seemed to detach itself. I can store the pieces on the Velcro for the file folder itself. However, if there are more pieces than items on the folder, there aren’t enough spaces. And, when I get ready for the student to use it, I have to dis-assemble the pieces for the student to complete it.
Thanks to my sister, Superteach56 for her willing photography of the strategy while she was making a file folder game. Anyone have other ways that work for them to fasten the pieces to file folder activities?
