  1. Hi April,
    My daughter loves your color by sight words worksheets. I was wondering if you would be able to send me the downloadable copy for all your coloring pages you have?
    Thanks so much, Brandi

  2. It’s great when the child is still very young and you can do such things at school. Then there will be adult life, the Essay writing period and other problems. Although there is already a solution to this, because there are more than enough good services that will write everything for you

  3. Quite a useful article, thank you, April! I also would like to leave a link to a nice service where my daughter often gets help withher homework if there are some insurmountable obstacles. – here it is, nice and easy 🙂

  4. A very useful thing that will help children learn to choose words and colours. It’s very cool that you can download it for free, while children can not only have fun, but also learn. Thanks, keep sharing!

  5. Students love to color so why not use that as a learning tool. This set of 20 sight word practice worksheets will help your students learn to match common CVC words with their corresponding colors. Kids have a blast coloring these picture, but don’t worry about the mess when you are done because the pages clean up with ease! Each page consists of two sight words and corresponding colors to color. There are also two identical pages of just the colored illustrations for your kids to color over if they finish.
