If you can believe it, we’re already 11 days into our 31 days of file folder games and the frogs from today’s game are hungry and ready to eat!
Practice number words with your kindergartner as they count the flies and feed the frog in this fun game!
Once your child has learned to count, the next logical step is moving onto learning those number words as knowing them by sight can make learning to read so much easier.
Feed the Frog File Folder Game
From one to ten, your child will practice recognizing number words while counting and matching a number of objects to the correct number word.
Of course, like all of our other file folder games, the first step is to attach the cover to the front of your file folder using some clear contact paper.
Once this is attached, you can start working on putting the rest of it together.
To get started, you’ll need to print and cut out the frogs and the logs that are included in the printable set below.
Laminate the frogs and attach the logs to the inside of your file folder using some more contact paper.
For our game, we stuck five logs on one side and five on the other.
Finally, you’ll need to attach the Velcro dots for the frog pieces.
Adding the Velcro: I personally stick with the same side on every file folder game so that 1. I could use pieces between different games if needed and 2. I don’t forget and then accidentally put the same type of Velcro on multiple pieces making it so they won’t stick together.
For us, we use the softer side of the Velcro on the inside of the file folder and the scratchier side attaches to the backs of each of the frogs and when they all have Velcro, you’re ready to start playing!
Each of the frogs has a message board that gives his order. He’s hungry and knows just how many flies will fill him up.
Have your child find the correct number word (matching the number of flies) and stick the frog onto the log so he can eat. Easy as that!
