In this file folder game, students solve the problem on the squirrel and find the acorn with the correct answer. There are blank acorns that students can use as manipulatives, or you can get some real acorns!
Cut the squirrels out and glue inside a file folder. Laminate the file folder, the acorns containing the sums, and the blank acorns.
Cut out the acorns. Affix velcro to the back of each acorn that has a sum. Place a piece of velcro next to each squirrel on the file folder.
I like to tape an envelope to the back of the file folder and keep the pieces in there.
I hope you and your students enjoy this!
