Vocabulary Fortune Teller aka Cootie Catcher

Okay, so the words "Cootie Catcher" are cracking me up! As if we need to catch any more "cooties" in our occupation.

Anyway, I have been in training for the last eight days for reading across the content areas (NGCAR-PD). The targeted audience was for middle and high school teachers. However, I learned some amazing strategies and it was a good review for me since my reading certification runs through grade 12. One of the teachers shared an idea of using fortune tellers for vocabulary practice and review. I thought....What Fun!!! My third graders will so love this activity. So, I have included a template created in Publisher that you all may use an adapt! I just ask that you reference back to TIPS please :)

Oh my goodness...I just have to add this! I had originally create the template in Publisher! What a big mistake. I realized then that Google docs doesn't upload a pub doc. I then transferred everything to Word...that also took some maneuvering. I have so much to learn in the blogging world. Yet again, I am in awe of my colleagues and their talents. I have so much to learn. If you all wouldn't mind sharing with me how you learned the "tricks" in the blogging world I would appreciate it. Thanks :)

Hugs and Smiles,

Just found your blog. In Google Docs you need to convert/upload your Word Doc in PDF, but then that would not allow editing/adding to the cootie catcher.

By the way I teach 3rd grade also.

Thanks so much for commenting :) I usually put my docs in pdf but I wanted my buddies to be able to input their own info. I am so excited to be following your blog. I am new to third grade this year and am excited to learn all that I can from my amazing colleagues.

I learned a lot - and probably never would have taken on the blogging challenge without -Teaching Blog Traffic School, which is a video course for Teacher-bloggers (and mommy-bloggers or similarly focused new bloggers) as well as a supportive and knowledgeable community!

Just started following you tonight! Great freebies!!
