Color by code printables have always been a pretty popular choice when it comes to practicing concepts like numbers, color words, and even addition and subtraction, but recently, we’ve started using them to work on sight words as well.
Since you simply print them off and start coloring, they’re probably one of the fastest and easiest activities to prep as well.
Now, my own kids love color by code printables because not only do they give them a few stress-free minutes of coloring, but they’re also a lot of fun!
Now, we could have just added the sight words and left it at that, of course, but we’re always looking for ways to make our learning even more fun, so instead, we also made them bigger!
These giant summer-themed color by sight word printables were a huge hit here and now, we’re sharing them with you so that you can add them to your own summer bucket lists!
Giant Sight Word Color by Code
Learning to recognize sight words and other high-frequency words is an important part of learning to read.
Unfortunately, it’s not always an easy one.
These words don’t always follow the typical phonetic spelling rules, making it next to impossible to sound them out, but show up so frequently in our day-to-day reading that knowing them by sight is what makes reading fluently possible.
Some kids find these words easy to memorize while others struggle a bit more to remember them, but the good news is that they’re really easy to practice!
These giant sight word color by code pictures are the perfect place to start!
Just print the pages off, tape them together, and you’re ready to start coloring!
Assembling the Giant Sight Word Color by Code Pictures
Each of the pictures included in this set is made up of six pages, making this the perfect activity for small groups.
You’ll simply print the pages for each picture out, tape them together to create the image, and give your students the printable key that lets them know what color each sight word should be.
The pages for each picture will print in the order that they should be assembled.
The first three pages, for example, will make up the top half of the image once they’re all taped together. The next three pages will make up the bottom half of the image.
Using the Giant Color by Sight Word Pictures
Each summer-themed picture features a different set of sight words.
Picture One (pail and shovel) includes:
Picture Two (sunscreen and sunglasses on the beach) includes:
Picture Three (surfboards on the beach) includes:
Each picture also includes a printable key that lists the included sight words and the colors for them.
Give this to your students, set out some crayons or markers, and let them work together to practice their sight words and color their summer-themed masterpiece!
