I decided to create these cootie catchers as a fun home-learning tool to monitor my students' reading comprehension of story elements. They're a great alternative to students' reading log and the kids really enjoy them!
3 Black and White Cooties are included in this pack. Directions are also included on each printable. All eight questions are common core aligned and are geared for 4th, 5th, and 6th grades.

How to Use:
1) Have the students color and fold their Reading Log cootie on Monday.
2) My students normally read for 30 minutes a night, so once they’re done with their reading, they’re required to follow the game's directions and answer one question each night.
3) Students must answer a different question each night. Students may record their questions and answers on a separate sheet of paper or in a composition book. Check students’ understanding throughout the week.
Great for Centers and paired activities too! You can also print several copies of each cootie on construction paper and keep them at your literacy center.
When printing, make sure to select "Actual Size" or "Fit" for best results.
