Happy New Year, Friends! Color by code worksheets have always been a favorite at our house, and I have made many, sets over the years. If your young learners love Color by Code worksheets also, they will love what I have in store for them this year!
Each month, I will publish a packet of Color by code Sight Word worksheets that will feature various themes of the month. January’s packet features primarily snow-themed pages since snow is a major learning theme this time of year, whether you actually have snow or not!
Since sight words need much practice, this whole year will focus on those common words we see every day.
❄️ Looking for more worksheets to use during January? Try the January Word Search Packet, which features a variety of January themes.
There are also a variety of winter worksheets ➡️ Winter Worksheets and Printable Activities
January Color By Code Sight Word Worksheets
January’s packet of color by code sight word worksheets will focus on words found on the Pre-Primer and Primer Dolch word lists.
If you’re not familiar, there are several lists of common, everyday words. The two most popular lists are the Dolch Word List and Fry’s Word List.
I will use various levels of the Dolch Word List (Pre-Primer through 3rd Grade) throughout the year as we practice these sight words!
Coloring pictures included in this 11-page Color by Code Sight Word Worksheet Packet:

- Snowman scene
- Hot Chocolate mug
- Warm Sweater
- Polar Bear
- Snow Globe

As with any worksheet, I advise going over the directions carefully with your child to make sure he understands the task. Because sight words are quite challenging for many children, take the time to go over each word on the page.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- If the sight word matches a particular spelling pattern, point out other words that also match that pattern.
For example: so has a long o sound. Write the word so on a piece of paper, and then write the words no and go.
Now point out the word to. It’s spelled in the same way as so, but the o makes a different sound. Under to, also write the word do.
- Point out any vowel teams in the sight words and review what a vowel team is.
- Review color words, as they are used on every page! Some of the color words are from the Dolch list, so those are certainly worth mentioning.
- Review beginning blends, especially those found in color words.
