Your students already love them, why not use cootie catchers for a fun language review, center activity, or partner share after independent reading. This file includes 10 different cootie catchers for literary elements(2 for each of: author's purpose, characterization, figurative language, point of view, and tone and mood). The file also contains a blank template for making your own cootie catcher (a perfect activity for test review questions).
This resource is included in my Cootie Catchers for Language Arts bundle which contains 6 of my most popular cootie catcher packages for Language Arts. http://www.teachersnotebook.com/product/rundesroom/cootie-catchers-for-language-arts
