The file folder game is also a sorting activity. Students will read the problem on each apple and sort it into the section with the correct answer (7, 8, 9, or 10). To separate the 4 sections on the file folder, I used some red masking tape I had from when Office Max had them on sale (I stocked up and use these ALL the time now!). You could also use fancy duct tape, ribbon, or even draw the lines on yourself.
I have included a recording sheet and an answer key so the kids can be independent with this activity, yet be held accountable!
The entire file folder game is available in color as well as black and white, if you are wanting to save your ink!
I also made another version of my adding using a tens frame board game. Of course, I kept with the apple theme, so this version is adding green and red apples. It is also available in color as well as black and white. Kids love to use paperclips as spinners and create their own addition problem!
I have also included a couple of my WILD card games in this bundle. These two games were my first two editions of WILD! so they are kind of special to me. I had NO idea how popular these were going to end up. The first version deals with facts with sums of 0 to 9 and the second version has sums from 10 to 20. Of course, you could always add both decks together as well to make one large deck of cards and make them game a little more difficult!
If you want to keep them separate, you can print them on different colored paper OR you can quickly add stickers or tape to the back of the cards. For one of my recent decks, I added some of the masking tape I had stocked up on before I laminated it.
Now, it is easy to identify which deck it belongs to! In fact, you can use this tip for lots of different objects around your classroom!
