File Folders

File Folders, for Games and More

 
I know, I have a thing for file folders! Maybe it's because I make so many file folder games for my classroom, but nonetheless, a really cute file folder just grabs my attention.  As the new year approaches and I am putting away all my Christmas stuff (well, I haven't actually put it away yet, but I have thought about it.... that counts, right?), I have been thinking about ways to get my office, laundry room, and kitchen organized. I am for sure going to be grabbing some decorative file folders.  Here are some really cute ones I found on Amazon.com. Now, I just need to get motivated to do the work!

Easy Christmas Cookies

Easy Christmas Cookies


If you need an easy Christmas cookie that everyone seems to enjoy, try these.  Not only are they easy to make, but they are yummy to the tummy!  These are the packaged Oreo cookies that are dipped in white chocolate.  Buy the prepackaged cookie icing (royal icing) that comes in a tube.  I used red, green, and white icing, but you could choose whatever colors you want. I then took a toothpick and swirled the colors together and added white snowflake sprinkles.  Put them on a Christmas platter, and there you have it..... pretty little white chocolate Christmas cookies!

These would also make a great cookie gift to package up for neighbors or as a teacher gift.  See my teacher blog for other great ideas for teachers.

Best Teacher Blog

 Teacher Blog

Yep, I am looking to create one of the best teacher blogs out there.  Okay, that is a hefty goal, but it is achievable.  Don't ever underestimate Molly!  HA! If you haven't already visited my new teacher blog, please head on over today.  It is really coming together.  I chose the name Classroom Confections because I love sweet ideas for the classroom... AKA... fun, creative, original, etc.   On this blog, I will feature all of my teacher/classroom ideas. I am not going to remove the links on this blog yet, but I probably won't add any new material here.  My new teacher blog will include my Teachers Pay Teachers store, as well as lots of free stuff. On the sidebars of the blog  you will find pictures to all of my classroom games, so just click on an image and it will take you to more detailed information about the items. I will also be doing a Featured Teacher write-up each week on a favorite blog of mine.  These will be blogs that offer fun and creative ideas just as I do.  If you are a teacher, please head on over to check it out. Don't forget to subscribe.  You don't want to get left out of any of the freebies!

Christmas Math Center Activities


Calling all teachers!! It's Christmas time, which means it's time to add some Christmas themed math centers to your classroom activity list.  And of course, the busy bee that I am (or maybe more like Santa's elf), I have been working hard to put together some fun Christmas activities that will work perfectly for math centers. Although most of these are math games with a Christmas theme, a few of the activities might be more suitable for individual work. All of these activities can be found in my Teachers Pay Teachers store by clicking HERE.

Order of Operations Game


I gotta' (yes, I know that's not spelled correctly) tell you, some fourth graders can barely do basic multiplication and division, so when it comes to throwing another step into the picture, such as order, it can become quite challenging.  This week's focus is order of operations, and what better way to make things fun than with an order of operations game!!  The theme of this game is 'get in the groove' with order of operations.  It has a peace and love theme and is sure to get your kiddos in a happy mood. 

This is a sample game that has been laminated and put in a file folder.

 To purchase this game or for more info, click HERE.

In this game, students will solve problems using order of operations with adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. This makes a perfect math center activity, as it fits perfectly in a file folder once laminated. There are 32 operation cards, an adorable cover sheet for the front of your file folder game, answer sheets, and directions. Your students are going to get in the groove with order of operations and have a smile on their face while doing it!

Halloween Multiplication Game


I love doing themed activities in the classroom, especially holiday activities.  This is a fun game I made to review basic multiplication facts, and it has a Halloween theme.  I try to make my games so they fit perfectly in a file folder or a pocket folder.  This multiplication game does exactly that.  You will laminate all pieces: cover sheet, two game boards (one for each side of file folder on inside), directions to staple to the back, and 40 multiplication cards.  Once you have it all put together, this file folder math game will work great for a math center activity.  You can purchase this game on my TpT website by clicking HERE. Thanks for checking it out!
