You've Got Cooties!

Hello, dear friends!

Just kidding...you don't have cooties!

My kids LOVE playing with those cootie catcher/fortune teller things, so I made one to help us review the place value unit I taught a few weeks ago.  If my students finish their independent math center early, they usually get flash cards. I thought, I should make one of those cootie catcher things for early finishers. They'd love that.  SO...I did!  Click the picture below to purchase the Place Value Cootie Catcher.  I'd love to make some more of these, if anyone is interested.  The first person to comment and let me know if you'd like me to make one for another topic gets a copy of the Place Value Cootie Catcher for free. I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL day! :-)

    1. I made one for landforms in my landform packet. Would you want me to sell it separately? Also, you have mail. :-)

    1. Not stupid at all. The cootie catcher/fortune teller was a game I remember playing in school. The insides had silly fortunes on them. I off course decided to make one for my kiddos that was educational. Partner 1 asks Partner 2 to choose either the word ones, tens, hundreds, or thousands. Then, Partner 1 spells the word while folding the cootie catcher in and out. Partner 1 asks Partner 2 to choose a number and Partner 1 folds the cootie catcher in and out that many times. Last, Partner 1 opens the flap for Partner 2 to answer.

      There are several YouTube videos showing how to make and play the original version of the cootie catcher.

      I hope this helps!
