2D Shapes Sort & Match File Folder Game

Thanks for your interest in my 2D Shapes Sort & Match File Folder Game. Students will use the game pieces to play the game by matching one shape card (game piece) per shape on the game mat. 

Click here to preview & purchase this game.

This download includes:
- Color game mats with game pieces
- Black & White (BW) game mats with game pieces
- Folder labels

Assembly is easy:
1. Print the game mat pages (choose color or black and white), laminate them, and use double face tap to adhere them to a file folder. Circle - square on one side and octagon - trapezoid on the other side of the file folder (see photo on next page for sample image).
2. Print, trim and laminate the game pieces. 
3. {Optional} On the game mat, place a clear sticky dot of (hook/scratchy side) Velcro on each shape. On the back of each game piece, place sticky dot (loop/soft side) Velcro. This keeps the pieces from slipping while playing.
4. Store game pieces in an envelope attached to the front of the file folder. I like to laminate my envelopes to make them last longer. (Again, see next page.) I also add Velcro to the flap so they are able to securely close.
5. Label the file folder tab.

{Tip 1} If game pieces are ending up everywhere but the file folder game mat, try placing the game on a large tray or cookie sheet instead. That usually does the trick for students unable to figure out space boundaries on their own. 

{Tip 2} This could be a quick match up and coloring activity for fast finishers. Print the black and white copy of the game mats, do not laminate, allow students to make matches with game pieces. Once they are done making matches, they can color in the shapes. Head Start teachers, black & white copies could also be used as a “make your own matching game” activity to send home in family engagement/homework packets.
