Train File Folder Activities

Is it just me or does Thomas the Tank Engine have some weird insight into the world of autism? What is it about that lovable blue face that makes some of my kids melt? They love him. Where ever the obsession with Thomas started – sadly ย the Tank Engine is on the no fly list in my class. I can’t justify a blue talking train for my junior high tweens. Nemo, Spongebob, Pixar, and anything Marvel Comic – I can get on board with. Some cartoons cross age spans. But anyways, I will get off my age-appropraite high horse. I still wanted to take advantage of the motivating train theme without having a Percy matching party.

Train file folders to the rescue! Still cutesy but I feel like I can justify them for my older kids a little better. I have one student who is a crazy, fast worker bee yet also seems to get sick of activities really fast. I have been working double time making tons of new activities for him. He loves this train set and surprisingly seems to have a longer attention span for these activities.

I am sure everyone has at least one train kiddo in their room! So check out these Train Themed File Folder Activities!

  1. My boys absolutely love trains, on the ASD spectrum or not. I wish more people had more activities/units/lessons involving trains and/or the Thomas characters.

  2. There have actually been articles about ASD and Thomas. The articles totally make sense.
    I get not having Thomas in your room though. My kiddos are Primary so it makes for incorporating Thomas a little easier. However…I actually have NO children interested! Imagine that!
    The article below is NOT mine, but is an interesting read nonetheless.

  9. Hi Sasha,
    How did you make the display pictures for this product? I can’t even figure out what to call this to look it up on the web. I want to create some of these for some of my things and don’t know how to do that! Thanks so much for any direction you can give me.
    By the way, congrats on hitting $20000 on Tpt. . . that’s AMAZING!!!!
