Did you know that ‘kōwhai’ is both the Māori word for yellow AND the name of one of our most well known trees? We also have a native bird called a ‘Yellowhead!’ Celebrate the letter Y with a fun colouring sheet and mini book.
This Y = Yellow activity set includes:
- A ‘yellow’ themed colouring sheet – how many yellow things can you find and colour?
- A mini foldable book to colour and read that features yellow things! (the kōwhai tree, whetū/star, yellowhead/mohua, Te Rā/sun, yellow fruit & fire)
- This activity includes a supporting photograph sequence so you can see how the activity is used and assembled, plus the completed product
- Also included is a ’bookmark’ style strip of paper on the lefthand side of the sheet that matches the activity and letter being focused on—perfect for slipping into the kid’s book bag at the end of the day to support them to share their learning when they take their creations home
