A super-fun hands-on activity for your students learning their sight words at the Magenta to Orange levels of the NZ colour wheel.
Laminate the Cookie Monster and cut a hole in its mouth. Students read the sight word on the cookie and feed it to the Cookie Monster. I suggest attaching the Cookie Monster to something like an ice-cream container so that it stands upright by itself and so the cookies all fall into something.
Each cookie has a sight word written on it. The colour of the icing indicates the level of the sight word. There are 6 cookies on each A4 page.
An alternative activity using the cookies is to take the cookies on/off a cookie tray using a kitchen spatula or a pair of tongs. This is great for developing find motor skills. A cookie tray template is provided but you will need to provide your own spatula/tongs.
You may like to consider doing an art activity with your students where they make their own Cookie Monster to use with their sight words. This is a great way to personalise the activity.
