This packet contains materials and resources to work on sorting, counting, matching, patterns, numbers, and letters for early learners through hands-on file folder activities. This is great for one on one work time, centers, or 2-3 person cooperative small group.
All kids love monsters! Using engaging topics is a sure way to get your students working!
File folder activities are great because they are hands-on and easy to store! You could also use these as cut and paste activities to target fine motor skills!
File folder activities included are:
- sort big and little
- match by size
- basic matching (2)
- order from big to small
- 3 levels of patterning
- match numbers to number words (1-10 and 11-20)
- order alphabet
- match lowercase letters to uppercase letters
Recognize and name all upper- and lowercase letters of the alphabet.
Sort common objects into categories (e.g., shapes, foods) to gain a sense of the concepts the categories represent.
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and only one object.
Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.
Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 (with 0 representing a count of no objects).
Instructions for setup are included. Each file folder activity is labeled specifically with the CCSS addressed for easy use during lesson planning! Also aligned for Teaching Strategies Creative Curriculum
