84 activity sheets for words from the Magenta, Red and Yellow levels of the colour wheel.

8 activities on each sheet:
♦ Read it
♦ Colour it
♦ Trace it
♦ Write it
♦ Clap it (how many syllables?)
♦ Spell it (write it in the ‘letter boxes’)
♦ Connect it (draw a line to connect the letters)
♦ Find it (find the word written 4 times)

There is also space on the top of each sheet for your students to write their name.

The font:
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’.

New challenges:
The sheets are all the same format however there are a couple of new challenges as the levels progress.
♦ At the Magenta and Red levels, the ‘connect it’ letters are all joined either vertically, diagonally or horizontally in a left to right manner. At the Yellow level the letters may also be joined in a ‘backwards’ manner (ie, right to left direction).
♦ At the Magenta level all of the ‘find it’ words are written with the NZ basic script font. At the red level there are 8 different easy-to-read fonts used, and at the Yellow level 8 more different fonts are introduced that are slightly more decorative/complex. (see examples of all 3 levels on the thumbnail images above)
