Product Description
Sight word targets for words at the Magenta to Orange level of the NZ colour wheel.

A great activity for your active students who enjoy hands-on learning. Your students can work on their hand-eye co-ordination while learning their sight words.

A suggestion for using these cards is to place them on the floor or the wall/board. Say a word. Your student(s) identify where that word is and tries to hit that target with an object. If the object lands on or hits the target they score one point. Suitable objects to throw would be things like a small bean bag, a paper jet plane, a counter, or a soft ball (eg koosh ball). I’m not sure about using a Nerf gun at school, but how motivating would that be for a reluctant reader! Perhaps a slingshot would be a better idea ...

If throwing activities are not your thing, I completely understand. The good thing is, these cards can be used in any way you wish. For example, touch the word with a ‘magic wand’ and say the word out loud.

You could even print off two sets and play ‘Memory’ with them. (Have some cards face down on the floor/table and turn two over at a time. If they’re the same word you keep the cards).

♦ There are 4 targets to each A4 size page.
♦ The words are written with the NZ Basic Script font.
♦ A rectangular shape – easy to cut out and laminate!
