Teaching sight words is so much fun once you have the right tools! How do you reinforce sight words? I love getting the kids to learn their sight words in different ways. Most of the time they are learning through play and group games. These summer sight word color by codes are sure to get your students wanting to learn their sight words!

Summer Sight Word Color By Codes
This activity is so easy to setup – just print and play! All you need are the printable pages (at the end of the post) and crayons.
There are eight sight words total in this activity pack, geared toward Kindergarten. These include: said, and, was, big, see, you, the, and we. Before we begin the activity, I like playing a quick game with the class to pre-teach or review the sight words. This way the kids are familiar with them.
The kids love reading their sight words and coloring to find the hidden pictures!
Once you’ve printed the activity pages, you can hand out the sheet and tell 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.
You may want to color the key together beforehand depending on how your students are with reading color words.
My ESL kids are always in need of more sight word activities. This fun activity gets ESL kids interested in reading their 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!)
