Start the school year with a fun ice breaker activity while setting goals and establishing a brain break that can be used any time!
Did you ever play with paper folded fortune tellers or cootie catchers as a kid? Pass on the love for this paper folding activity! This set includes 50 different fortune tellers, each with an unique school goal, fun "fortune" phrases to answer Yes and No questions, and hundreds of hilarious brain break style activities for students to perform as their questions are answered. Below each fortune teller is a different photo frame labeled with the corresponding goal for students to draw their picture inside along with a fun ice breaker prompt for students to complete. This portion can be shared and displayed to make a class wall or quilt (great for the beginning of the year!). Directions with step by step pictures are included on how to construct the fortune tellers and suggested game play. A corresponding Fortune Teller Awards Click here to view this product
set is also available that has a fortune teller award to match each goal with a customizable certificate from the teacher for students to keep. I use the goal fortune tellers throughout the year as students set new goals and the award fortune tellers and certificates to celebrate as they accomplish their goals and as an end of the year award and activity. No matter how you choose to use this you will never run out of options! There are 50 different goals and hundreds of different brain break style activities. I encourage my students to keep their fortune tellers with their supplies so we can use them as short brain breaks during the year. We have also used this as a class brain break by having a students share their favorite activity for the class to perform together. It's hilarious! A blank fortune teller is included for students or the teacher to create their own. There is also a student copy of the table of contents of goals with directions for students to circle all of the goals that they think would be good for them during the school year. This is how I make my selection on who gets each fortune teller and goal. Students keep a copy of this to monitor and help them with their goal setting plans. A copy for the back offers additional places for students to think of their own goals to set. A Goal Setting Certificate & Poster to Declare & Achieve Goals

). I hope you enjoy these fortune tellers as much as my students and kids, but I have to warn you that you will begin to see kids crazy for making and playing with them! I have used this excitement to also help encourage science and social studies review. See my other fortune teller sets as they are posted!
