Math + Games = Fun + Learning (The Secret Formula for the 21st Century Math Classroom)

Are you a math teacher looking for a way to get your students engaged and excited about learning math?  

My Elementary and Middle School Math Games are a fun and challenging context in which students interact cooperatively or competitively to achieve a defined goal within a specified set of circumstances while learning or practicing math skills. 

Math games are a great tool to involve parents, guardians, siblings and other important people in the child’s life. It is a great way to facilitate the home and school connection..  

"I have used many of your activities in our SES math tutoring program. We have students from grades 3 through 8, and offer small group and individual instruction. Not only are your activities motivating for the students, they are easily adaptable for skill level as well as applications. " -- Cindy Price - Supplemental Education Services Coordinator  

"MathFileFolderGames has a wonderful collection of resources that support both my students' and my needs. The games motivate the students to practice and to reinforce their skills in a way they really enjoy. The collections have enough variety that I can offer them more than one game choice for many of the skills. As their teacher, I use them to assess the students' learning and to differentiate. As a "bonus", the games are easy to set up and to prepare. The collection is continuously growing so it is getting harder to NOT find a game to support whatever topic I am teaching ~~ I think I have every game they have created for Grade 3 and up!!" -- Lynne Menechella, Grade 5-8 Teacher  

"I have already referred you to friends and talked about what a lifesaver you have been for my kiddos who finish assignments or assessments and need some stimulation (not from the computer) you have also inspired my kids to create their own game boards as well." -- Maria Zappia, Grade 4-5 Teacher  

What is a File Folder Math Game? 

A File Folder Math Game fits in a folder making it easy to use and ready at a moment's notice. Very few other items are required. You'll need to construct or reproduce the included game boards and have playing cards and dice handy. A few games use other types of geometric manipulatives that are standard items in most elementary and middle school classrooms.

These value-packed printable math games will give your students so much fun they'll forget they're actually learning mathematics! But don't be fooled. Just because games are exciting doesn't mean that they're not built upon solid educational benefits.

These games also offer teachers another benefit. They align to the US Common Core Standards and Common Core Mathematical Practices.

By using File Folder Math Games at home or in your classroom with your elementary, middle school, or high school kids, you can provide them with hours of fun-filled learning time. And the best part is you'll get into the spirit and enjoy yourself, too!

Here's what a few teachers had to say about the file folder printable math games so far:

"How did I every teach without these! Thanks for creating games that make my students smile when they practice their math skills." -- DONDRA P. 

"This is a great resource. I was able to find games that supported both my 7th and 8th grade math classes!" -- Emily D. 

"My kids loved the few games I purchased so much, I decided to just get the lot. I gave out copies to pairs of kids and they rated which ones they wanted to do first. We now have File Folder Friday" -- Susan M

"I love this, I'm always looking for games that reinforce skills for my struggling learners. I use them for stations. Thanks!" -- Karen C. 

"This is a great assortment of games that are fast and two the point and provide conversation between students about the topic." -- tejackson

"EXCELLENT resource! Each game is quick and easy- can be done as a anticipatory activity and/or closing activity. Thank you!" -- Karen Vallone

"Students really enjoyed using these games. Have only used a few but the overall response was 100% positive." -- Brianna B

I wasn’t sure how much of the content would apply to middle school/sixth grade. I discovered most of the material would/could apply to my sixth grade classes. I really like the posters. They address the concept without a lot of extra fluff. Three benefits about this product are, the games. I can use them for either whole class or interventions as needed. The integers folder has been a great resource for my kids that are struggling. The equations folder was a Godsend, as the IT crew deleted all my equation materials this past summer. I would recommend purchasing it. You get SO much for your purchase price. Every time I look at the Dropbox files, I find something new to use or I come across something I overlooked. It’s been a great resource since my district doesn’t have textbooks.
