Reading Responses - Reading Response Cootie Catchers - Primary Grades
Comprehension Strategy Cootie Catchers

For this primary grades reading response activity, I’ve included several different and engaging cootie catchers for reading skills and strategies. There are 11 different cootie catchers – 5 for fiction, 4 for nonfiction, and 2 for general word study. This set is similar to my set for the junior grades, but the questions are geared to first - third grade. The teacher can use one cootie catcher to ask the class questions, or students can pair up during reading time to ask each other questions. I've made the questions general so that they can be used for ANY text. Already made cootie catchers are also great to keep in a basket in your classroom library, or during literacy centers. They would also be fun to send home with students so they can do the activity with a parent or sibling.
To use the cootie catchers, students can work with a partner or small group. The first partner chooses a color, then the partner holding the cootie catcher spells out the color, moving the flaps in and out, and side to side in time with the letters. The first partner then chooses a number from the inside numbers shown. The partner with the cootie catcher then counts up to this number, in the same manner as before (this step can be repeated one more time). The second partner then chooses another number from the numbers shown. The partner with the cootie catcher lifts the flap under the number and reads the question or prompt for the first partner to answer.

A blank template is also included in this file.
