  3. How to Make a Fortune Teller or Cootie Catcher… • Entering text into the template (slide one) • Triple-click (click 3 times quickly) in each area and type your information • If you wish, you can print the “empty” template (slide two) and have students handwrite or draw their information • The Flaps (labeled A, B, C, and D) are the outermost choices… these are often color words – remember you can change this text to color if you will be printing in color. • The Options (labeled 1 – 8) are the second choices and these are often numerals or number words. • The Fortunes (labeled Fortune1 – Fortune8) are where you type your SHORT messages. (You can adjust the font size if you need to fit more.) www.GailLovely.com

  4. How to Make a Fortune Teller or Cootie Catcher… • Use slide one to enter in your options (see slides 3-5 for examples) • Print your Fortune Teller. • Cut out the Fortune Teller along the outside line (6 or 8 inch square) • With the printed side up, fold the square in half horizontally and then vertically, open the folds. • Turn the square over. • Fold each corner over so they meet in the middle, do not let them overlap. • Leave the square folded, and flip the square over. • Now fold the corners into the center – make sure they do not overlap. • Fold the entire square in half and poke your thumbs and forefingers in under the flaps. • Bring your fingers together so the Fortune Teller forms a peak – • YOU are ready to PLAY! www.GailLovely.com

  5. Ideas for Using “Catchers” for Learning • Put an action where the fortunes are usually written and use it as a PE activity generator (children might select a flap and get an activity like “run in place” or “hop on one foot”) • For Language Arts, use words and have students open and close it the number of syllables in the word or spell the word rather than using numbers. • For math put simple math facts instead of numbers – so “5+3” could be on a flap, “6+1” on another flap and students open and close the “catcher” according to the solution to the math fact selected. • For reading and writing, students create the fortunes and must write them concisely to fit in the space allotted. Students must read aloud the fortunes for all to hear. • For any subject, 8 facts or factoids can be written in the place of fortunes, or questions with their answers can be written there as well. • For writing, students could have a different “catcher” for selecting a character (with a wide collection of characters, one under each flap), another for selecting a setting or a predicament and then write or draw the story using these characters, settings or predicaments. www.GailLovely.com
