This product is for a fun, first day or week of school, activity: Create a “fortune teller”! It is a zip file which contains 3 printable PDF files. The first is a two page, printable instruction sheet with visuals and instructions showing how to cut and fold the fortune teller. The second PDF is a color printable which is the fortune teller. There are 8 genres and 8 titles for the students to choose from. Students work with a partner and choose a genre. Then they count the and fold the fortune teller the amount of letters that the genre contains. Wherever it lands, they choose a title. They can then reveal their fortune or repeat by choosing an additional title. In the end, a “fortune” will be revealed to them that is based on the theme of the title chosen. This is an English, ELA, themed game.
This is a fun, interactive activity that can be used to begin the school year or just supply a quick fun activity. It works best to allow students to get to know one another. There is also a blank fortune teller if the students wanted to make their own or if a teacher wanted to use it for an additional subject. I hope it is engaging and fun for your upper elementary/middle school students.
