Nehemiah File Folder Fun

Monday, January 9, 2023
 The File Folder Fun are slightly different from File Folder Games. These are more like a hands-on visual to retell what they learned with everything stored with the file. Super easy to make, use and keep!
These are so fun! File folders can be used different ways... so use your imagination! The teacher can use this as a visual aid. The students like them because the people can be moved around. Kids love to use them to retell what they learned. They can also be left on a table for early arrivers. Laminate them so they can be wiped and reused especially during cold/flu seasons. Or, they can be taken home. File folders are so great because everything is contained inside and easy to use. If you prefer, you can glue the cover onto a large 10x13 envelope and store the pieces inside. If you are keeping a ring notebook, you can put the pieces in clear page protectors to use.
This set has the cover and the background for the inside. Print onto cardstock, trim the excess and glue to the file folder. Line up the top and bottom as shown. The stand-ups just need cut on the outside solid line and fold on the dotted lines. Cut out the 'bricks'. There is a set with words to the scripture (and a blank set just to build) and a blank set for nonreaders. Students can lay them in order however they choose to 'complete' Jerusalem's walls.

You can mix and match color with black & white. I like to prep items like this before class. Kids can add appropriate stickers to the background. Some of the pages will need to be trimmed down on the sides to fit your file folder.

The people can be attached to craft sticks. Add an envelope to the back of the folder to store them in. 
This was a "Wait! Let me do it!" moment. He placed the people and we talked about Elijah obeying God. They love the lift-the-flaps!
