Why are sight words so important?
Sight words can be really tricky for kindergartners! That’s because sight words don’t follow the basic phonics principles our kindergartners are learning in the classroom. Sight words can’t be “sounded out.” These adorable Halloween Color by Sight Word Kindergarten pages are perfect for helping your early readers learn to decode these tricky sight words.
They’ll be mastering lots of other important early reading skills with these trick-or-treat printables too! Here are some of the skills your kindergartners can learn while coloring these Halloween Color by Sight word printables:
- Build reading comprehension skills
- Boost their confidence in reading
- Build reading fluency
- Practice fine motor skills with coloring
Did you know sight words are rule-breakers? They don’t follow the basic phonics principles most kindergartners learn when they begin to read. That means these tricky sight words can’t be “sounded out” as easily as words that follow the traditional phonics rules.
Not to worry, learning to memorize sight words can help your kindergarten learners master these tricky rule breakers for good.

Reading aloud to your kindergartner can help build early reading skills:
