Today we have some fun and free sight word worksheets for children to color. These free printable sight word coloring pages have eight focus words, which are some of the most common words for young readers to work on.

Children color each part of the coloring picture by number, to reveal each focus word in bright and bold colors. The finished pictures can be displayed in your literacy centers to help build familiarity with these words.

My daughter is 5 years old in Reception class, and these are the first words that were on her list to learn.
