Perimeter File Folder Cards

Here are some basic perimeter cards that I made up. Each card has a polygon with measurements and students can pick a card and calculate the perimeters. You could make answer cards to go along with it and make it a matching activity.  I got these from 4th and 5th grade books…………. You could just also use them for worksheets.

Does it walk/fly, or swim? Sort according to the animal’s primary method of travel. (PDF)  science_life_animals_walk-fly-swim


Animals are faceless.

Hindi Numerals File folder/Lapbook ideas

My middles and the sixes are learning their hindi numerals as part of our Arabic class.

So I am putting together a file folder pack/lapbook with lots of review activities.

Here’s a listing of what I’m working on putting in:

  • A number chart
  • A number line
  • Numeral flashcards
  • Drill cards
    • Cards with rows or stair steps of numerals for student to read.
  • Sequence cards

I make up cards with one number on it and a blank line (before, on one card and after on another card.  I laminate this and student writes the number coming before or after as indicated by the position of the blank line.

I also make up cards for a number missing in the middle.

To vary the activity, instead of writing on the card, paper number tiles or sets of objects can be placed in the correct blank.

Also, just take a set of digit cards (0 through 9) and have student put in order.

  • Dot to Dot worksheets. Print out dot to dots, white out the numerals or letters and replace with hindi numerals. Laminate. Here are some dot to dot printable pages from Kidszone
  • Numeral tracing cards. Laminated cards with dotted hindi numerals to trace.
  • Addition/subtraction cards with the hindi numerals used; laminate
  • Use two decks of digit cards (0-9) and make greater than, less than, equal cards. Student picks two cards and puts the correct card (<> or =) inbetween the two digit cards picked.
