Basic Matching File Folders: Jump into Spring with Letters, Numbers and Colors

Type: digital

Using a fun frog theme, these 8-11 common-core -aligned file folders are perfect to practicing basic matching skills for early academics.. Focusing on colors, shapes, numbers and counting, this set makes between 8 and 11 file folders activities, depending on how you put them together, and will make excellent spring resources for centers in younger elementary or preschool classrooms. They are also perfect for independent work systems in autism and special education classrooms. 

This set is designed to assure that what the student is learning is the skill targeted. For instance, all the numbers are on the same color items so that the student doesn’t learn to match the colors instead of the number. The set features common elements of fall including leaves and pumpkins but avoids Halloween-specific items for schools that cannot use them.
