Secondary fun and learning! Students LOVE this!
One cootie catcher has the definition for each of the parts of speech: adjective, adverb, noun, verb, conjunction, pronoun, article, and preposition.
The next three cootie catchers use one word in 8 different sentences. Students must decide which part of speech is being used.
For example, “Up” could be used as:
an Adverb-- John should stand up to the senator.
a Preposition—Frieda climbed up the mountain.
OR an Adjective—Is Jake on the up escalator or the down elevator?
One student lifts the flap and reads the sentence.The student’s partner guesses the part of speech. (The answer is provided for the first student right on the Cootie Catcher!).
Students love folding, playing, and LEARNING with cootie catchers (also known as fortune tellers).
I hope your students enjoy these as much as my students enjoy them!
