How to Prepare file folder math games:
For best “look” print the games in color but they look fine printed in grayscale. I print the title page in color, laminate it, and glue it to the front of a 9×12 envelope. I copy the game pieces in color (or using black ink, onto color cardstock), laminate, cut out, and place them in Ziploc bags. I place the Ziploc bag, recording sheets, and laminated answer key in the envelope for storage.
This game is played like Old Maid. The players sit in a circle….
Next the dealer takes, without looking, one card from the hand of the player on her right. If that card matches a card in her hand, she pairs the two cards and discards the pair face-up in front of her…..
Play continues in this manner around the circle. As the cards move from one player to another they will eventually all be paired and discarded- all, that is, but the “old maid” card. When a player loses all of her cards she is a winner and drops out of play.
