47 graph templates using NZ sight words from the Magenta to Orange levels.

Students circle the words, colour the graph and write the number in the circle below.

A great way to cover literacy and numeracy at the same time.

The graphs progress in difficulty:
At the Magenta level students are only working with a few words on a simple 5x4 graph. By the time they get to Orange, the task has become more challenging with the number of words that they need to plot on a 6x6 graph. For example:

♦ Magenta – 4 different words to graph. 15 words to circle and graph. A maximum number of 5.
♦ Orange - 6 different words to graph. 25 words to circle and graph. A maximum number of 6.

♦ Magenta – 7 graphs
♦ Red – 6 graphs
♦ Yellow – 7 graphs
♦ Blue - 7 graphs
♦ Green – 9 graphs
♦ Orange – 11 graphs
♦ 2 blank templates to make your own activity. (Magenta and Orange templates).

The thumbnail images above show a graph for Magenta, Yellow and Orange.

The font used is ‘NZ Basic Script’. The letter/number shapes are the same as those recommended in the NZ Ministry of Education Handbook – ‘Teaching Handwriting’.
