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.

If using this activity in your literacy centers, you can laminate the sight word printables to make them reusable. Give your students dry erase markers to color for an extra level of fun!

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!

Students use the sight word color codes to color the words and reveal a fun summer picture.
