Your students already love them, why not use cootie catchers for a fun language activity. This file includes a different cootie catcher for each of the seven reading comprehension strategies (asking questions, determining importance, inferring, making connections, summarizing, synthesizing, and visualizing). The file also contains a blank template for making your own cootie catcher (a perfect activity for test review questions). This activity is perfect for centres in your classroom, or for a pair-share activity after independent reading.
This resource is included in my Cootie Catchers for Language Arts bundle which contains 6 of my most popular cootie catcher activities for Language Arts. http://www.teachersnotebook.com/product/rundesroom/cootie-catchers-for-language-arts
