Folder Game Festival for Preschool and Kindergarten.
This book provides scores of activities using inexpensive manila file folders. Designed for children from preschool through kindergarten, each chapter proceeds from simple material to more advanced work. Selected subjects are intended to enhance the following curriculum studies and promote development in: (1) eye-hand coordination (e.g., fit the shoe, fit the glove, trace the trees, trace the stars); (2) pre-reading and reading (e.g., match the faces, alphabet match, word match, rhyming pictures); (3) mathematics (e.g., match the circles, fill in the calendar, count the triangles); (4) science (e.g., watch fish and colors, animals where they live, label the flower); and (5) social studies (e.g., my name, dress the dolls, people are interesting. All activities are geared for a minimum of teacher involvement and students are encouraged to work independently once they become familiar with game rules. (EH)
