Cootie catchers (or chatterboxes/fortune tellers) are a fun way of combining a popular children’s game with some practice in reading and spelling words that have a particular phonics focus.
This pack includes 15 different cootie catchers to help your students learn CVC words. They are split into 5 sets, where each set introduces new sounds/letters. Each set builds on the previous and will include the sounds/letters from previous sets. The sets include:
Set 1: a, i, m, n, o, p, s, t
Set 2: b, c, g, h
Set 3: d, e, f, v
Set 4: k, l, r, u
Set 5: j, w, x, y, z
Each set of cootie catchers also includes a word overview sheet. This sheet provides all of the words used in each cootie catcher.
Instructions are included for how to assemble the cootie catchers, as well as for how you can use them in your class.
