Cootie Catchers (Contractions & Common/Proper Nouns)

When I was a kid Cootie Catchers were called "Fortune Tellers" and we only used them to predict which boys we were going to marry and girly stuff like that.  However, teachers are so innovative and have turned this student-loved craft into a curriculum tool.  I used one to review multiplication facts the other day and my kids just FREAKED!  They loved it so much.  If you haven't used them with your kids yet, give it a try.  Even the older kids like them.

You can download a cute set of cootie catchers from my TPT store to review basic language concepts with your kids. One catcher quizzes students on common vs. proper nouns and the other addresses contractions.  They have cute dinosaurs and sea creatures on them to make them even more fun.  The download includes folding instructions.
