Alpha-Cooties are a fun and interactive way to learn the letters and sounds in the alphabet. My own students absolutely love playing with them, and I know yours will too. You'll receive 26 alphabet cootie catcher templates in black and white to save you ink.
Here are more benefits: *Builds phonemic awareness *Increases letter recognition and sound-symbol relationships. *Great for fine motor development. *Engaging, cooperative learning activity *Work on spelling strategies.
Please see the photo tutorial which shows how to create a cootie catcher. They are all in black and white to save you ink or offer them as a fun coloring activity.
NOTE: The outside flaps have pictures which begin with that corresponding letter in the alphabet. The inside pictures have the word with it to practice saying the sounds of the letters and spelling it. I’ve made every effort to make sure the words on the inside flaps were either CVC words or words with simple blends. The only letter that proved challenging was Q.
