A fun NZ sight word resource for the Magenta to Orange levels of the colour wheel.
2 sets provided:
♦ coloured (footprint on rock, like a fossil)
♦ black and white
4 footprints per A4 size page (enlarge to A3 if you want bigger footprints).
Blank templates also provided (for additional words if necessary).
The font used is ‘NZ Basic Script’. The letter shapes are the same as those recommended in the NZ Ministry of Education Handbook – ‘Teaching Handwriting’.
Print and laminate the footprints that you wish to use. If you are wanting to differentiate the sets of footprints then I suggest you put a coloured dot on the back before laminating. Eg. put a red dot on the back of the ’red’ words.
Ideas for Use:
♦ Place a track of footprints around the classroom. Students walk around the track, stomping on the footprints and reading the words (in a dinosaur voice) as they go.
♦ Scatter the footprints on the floor. The teacher says a word. Which student can be the first to stomp on the correct word? (Be careful of little toes!)
♦ Print 2 sets and play ‘memory’. Place the cards face down. Students take turns at turning 2 cards over. If the words are the same, they keep the cards and have another turn. Who has the most pairs of cards at the end?
♦ Bury the footprints in the sandpit and go on a ‘fossil hunt’.
♦ Display the words around the classroom and go on a ‘fossil hunt’. Who can find the word ‘like’? Give you students a magnifying glass if you have some.
♦ Give the students a copy of the blank template (black and white). They can write a sight word in the footprint and decorate it. Perhaps you could staple a few together and make a little booklet.
♦ Create a ‘sentence stomp’. Make a sentence with the words and stomp it!
♦ Display as a track of footprints all around your classroom wall.
