I have been obsessed with sight words lately. And as we know, this is a Common Core Standard for the primary grade levels. One way I introduce sight words to my Kindergarten students is by introducing the "color words" first. This helps for the students that have not had any exposure to written language. So I can show the word "red" in a pocket chart, and we can look for red things that we can see around the room, or color different red pictures. By teaching the students the "color words" first, it then helps them understand that print carries meaning to more abstract words like: the, is, a...etc.
Here is a freebie that I made for the students to practice reading, printing, tracing, writing, and cut and pasting seven different color words. The following words are included in this packet: red, yellow, green, blue, orange, black, and brown. Click on the picture to pick a free one up at my TPT store.
Here is a picture of what the printable looks like:
The following Common Core Standard is addressed:
