Teaching sight words is so much fun once you have the right tools and resources! I love teaching sight words in different ways like learning through play and group games. These free Summer Sight Word Color by Code Printables are sure to get your students excited to practice reading sight words while solving the summer picture mysteries!
*Pair this with our Summer Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
Summer Sight Word Color by Code Printables
This activity pack focuses on 8 sight words and is designed with Kindergarten in mind. The sight words covered are said, and, was, big, see, you, the, and we. It is so easy to set up! All you need are the printable pages (at the end of the post) and crayons. Just print and play!
Before we begin the activity, I like playing a quick game with the class to pre-teach or review the sight words. This way they are fresh and the kids are familiar with them. They love reading their sight words and coloring to find the hidden pictures!
Teacher Tip: You may want to color the key together beforehand depending on the level of your students and how familiar they are with reading color words.
Using the Sight Word Printables in the Classroom
Once you’ve printed the activity pages, you can explain to the students that they need to read the code as well as the sight words. It’s essential they know that they should be coloring the sight words according to the code.
My ESL kids are always in need of more sight word practice. This fun activity gets ESL kids interested in reading their sight words. They also love guessing what the mystery picture might be as they color. In this case, it’s a fun sun and a bee!
