  1. For each of these file folder activities: did you make those in Photoshop, and then print them? Or can you buy those somewhere? Are these at teacher supply stores?

    I'm so new to all of this, and so excited! :)

  2. I am also curious to know where you got your file folder games. I love you blog! So many great ideas. Thanks for sharing your creativity.


  3. Sorry for being SUPER late, like 2 years late, but I was wondering if you happen to know why Set 1 is sooo much more expensive than Sets 2 and 3? I have been looking on Amazon. Do you have a better source for buying these sets?


  4. Hi! So, I know I'm about 2 years behind on this conversation, but I was wondering if you knew why the Set 1 is so much more expensive than Sets 2 and 3? I have been checking on Amazon. Thanks!


  5. I am also curious where to find these great folder games! Please let me know. Thank you!
