Word Catcher – Segment / Read / Spell Game
Based on the cootie catcher / fortune teller / whirlybird, these remind me of my playground days many years ago.
- Print, cut out and fold up to make the Word Catcher.
- FIrst the pupil chooses a picture then counts the sounds in the word to give first number which is the number of movements opening and closing the catcher.
- Next the pupil chooses a number and makes that number of movements.
- Then the pupil chooses a number again and opens out word catcher. If there’s a word underneath the number then the pupil has to read it. If there’s a picture underneath the number then the pupil has to spell it (by writing it down).

Thank you again. So glad to hear you and your kids are enjoying the resources.
Thank you for making this resource free- my class will love these!
These 'chatter boxes' will be a fun addition to my tutoring room! I know my kids will love them and will be practicing their spelling and decoding without realising they are being 'tricked' into working hard! Thank you!! :)
