A full set of ‘egg words’ from magenta to orange.
The colour of the egg yolk indicates the group of high frequency sight words from the colour wheel.
A great hands-on literacy activity for your students.
Words are written with the NZ Basic Script font.
Blank templates are also provided for you to add words or to use your own word lists.
♦ Say the word and flip it over with a kitchen spatula.
♦ Say the word and use a spatula to put it in or take it out of a frying pan.
♦ Be the first person to flip it over when the teacher calls the word (small group activity).
♦ Have a selection of cards and arrange them like a BINGO card. Flip them over when the teacher calls a word that you have in front of you. The first person to have all of their eggs turned over is the winner.
♦ Use them as a wall display.
♦ Print out 2 sets and play a memory game (matching pairs) with them. Turn the eggs face down. Take turns at turning 2 eggs over. If they match they keep the eggs, if not it’s the next person’s turn.
♦ Read the word on the egg, write it down, then flip it.
♦ ‘Scrambled Eggs’ – scramble them in a pile. Pull one out and read what it says.
High frequency words align to the NZ reading colour wheel:

♦ blue (37 words)
♦ green (49 words)
